Frame by Frame | Filming Kitchenability

Gina Todorovich

When I decided it was time to upgrade from my Canon 30D (I know, right? 30D?!), one of the key features I wanted of a new camera was high quality video recording. My dear friends Lilly and Jason hired wedding videographers who solely used DSLRs and the end product? Phenomenal. I love the look and feel of videos shot this way—the depth of field, the framing. This got me thinking more about investing in a camera for more than just still photography. 

A few months ago, I shared a video I shot behind-the-scenes with Kitchenability during one of her cookbook photo shoots with Patrick Onofre. Shortly thereafter, Nisa (the woman behind Kitchenability) asked me to join her team as her videographer. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be part of her team and love working with her, documenting her journey.

It's great to work with someone who understands, respects, likes and wants your artistic style. One of the best things about working with Nisa is how strong our connection is, as evidenced by all the times one of us mentions an idea that leads to the other saying, "That's EXACTLY what I was thinking!" (Often paired with some sort of pointing back and forth between us to indicate how we are on the same page yet again.)

In February, I joined Nisa on one of her business trips to San Diego. We packed a lot into two days—a half-day seminar with Liz Goodgold of Red Fire Branding on speaking as a business, some exploring of San Diego and Balboa Park, a team dinner, late night desserts, a coaching session with Liz, and so on and so forth.

See for yourself...

Well, that's all (for now), folks! But I will be shooting with Nisa again in less than two weeks, so look for more Kitchenability videos soon. 

Back At It

Gina Todorovich

I’ve been slacking on the photography front. That’s how my last blog post started. And how my life has been going. Thankfully, I’ve made use of my camera once again over the last few weeks—for both film photography and some video projects.

That last blog post was actually written en route to Virginia Beach to help out at Kitchenability’s cookbook photoshoot already underway with Patrick Onofre. I knew that Nisa, newly dubbed CEO of Kitchenability (congratulations!), had been interested in doing some videos, and I figured I should bring my 7D along and put its video capability to use. I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the photoshoot, both taking videos and even helping out in the kitchen. That’s right, I cooked and baked. Probably more in a day or two than I had in months prior. ;)

It was a really fun, incredibly productive weekend with a group of amazing people all working together on an ambitious project. Check out this video to get a taste of what the weekend was like. Also, be sure to check out Kitchenability on Facebook and Twitter and OF COURSE look for the cookbook in August 2012.

 

In addition to the video endeavor, I also enjoyed photographing a few of my dear friends recently.

Some recurring faces on this blog that you may—and really should—know by now are of my dear friends Jacques and Paula, whom I have been fortunate enough to photograph several times during different life events. It started with their engagement photos, followed by their wedding, and then recently maternity pictures. Then, just a few weeks ago I took pictures of Jacques and Paula and their adorable son.

 

Paula pointed out earlier this year that I have photographed all of their life events and that it's become a tradition of sorts. One I am absolutely thrilled about, honestly. 

And last but not least, Chelsey Christensen—model, actress and dear friend—and I were finally able to schedule a photoshoot for her website revamp. Her's is another face you may already know (either because she’s super sociable, busy and all around awesome or because I’ve also photographed her before as well). And if you don’t know her yet, you should. Trust me. While her site redesign is allllllmost complete, you can get a sneak peak of some of the shots here. 

   

It's been great to pick things back up with photography, and I hope to—no, I WILL—continue to do so...
