This was a super fun school event I got to shoot. If I wasn't asked by the school to shoot this event and I had brought the right clothes, I most definitely would have participated. The following two days, students were still washing paint out of their hair.

my suggestion for next time is to get a Variable ND filter so that you can lower your shutter speed so that there is more motion blur, because it looks like your at like 1/2000th of a second, with that nd filter you can go down to 1/50th of a second to get that nice movie like quality :)

because i can shoot 1/50th at 60fps..? O.o i don't even know how to construct a response to your post.
adding "motion blur" to a motion picture is not a rule. it creates a cinematic film quality to an image which is absolutely the opposite of what i was trying to accomplish. you can clearly see that these kids are running at speeds of up to 10 miles an hour, with limbs swing at over 40 mph. do you photograph any sports at 1/50th of a second? why would you capture movie clips at 1/50th.?

I'f I'm right, (at least with my T3i), I can't go below 1/60th shutter to shoot anything in MovieMode. (Please correct me if I am wrong though)

BTW, that was an awesome video. Almost makes me want to start my own paint wars. I love how you're following different individuals to get perspectives on their battles, but the mid shots of a group of people make it seem like everyone involved is just having a ton of fun. Great shoot skwirnmn.

you're correct. when shooting at 60 fps, you cannot go below 1/60th. when shooting at 30 fps, you cannot go below 1/30th.

definitely a ton of fun though. get a group of your friends together and a few cans of paint and start slinging! document it for the rest of us on potn though!

Have you done any research on it? Any good sites to look at? I'd love to get this going since my college is nearing exams, would be a great load off of everyones day

i didnt know you were shooting at 60fps, which is then 1/120th of a second to make the motion blur to make it more smoothly, but sorry for my constructive criticism did'nt.

and for sports photo your trying to freeze motion, and video your trying to capture it,
i got to film school so i figured i would give you my input, but it looks like you dont want it.

pick up your 60D and shoot it at 1/120th.. this ss doesn't exist. O.o

i'm not saying i don't want input.. i'm correcting your statement because you believe that a stylistic choice is the only way to shoot something. (just like some people believe that shooting with only natural light is the ONLY way to shoot.. it's only a stylistic choice, not a rule) indeed it is a technique that some people use to achieve a certain look, but it is not the only way to shoot video. I'm double majoring at the art institute of california in digital photography and video production. going to a film school adds no credibility to your post.

using the 180 degree rule creates motion blur similar to what our eyes see. creating motion blur is counterintuitive when you slow-motion any footage.

this video would not have been possible shooting at 1/125th.
