first_imgA leading judge has appealed to the Donegal All-Ireland winning GAA team to set a good example to young drivers on the road.Judge John O’Hagan congratulated the team when he sat at Letterkenny Circuit Court today.Judge O’Hagan said the win will give the county a huge lift and that members of the team are now icons. But he pleaded with them to set an example on the roads to encourage all young drivers to drive safely.“These young heroes of County Donegal – the manager and the team are now icons within the county and will be talked about.“They are an example to all people in the county. But I would like them to take under their belts to impress upon the people of Co Donegal that to drive on the road in a privilege for which they have a license.“It’s a message I have tried to send out many, many times,” he said.Judge O’Hagan said he experienced the joy of Louth winning the All-Ireland for a solitary time in 1957.“It’s a tremendously uplifting experience and makes everyone glow for a time while Sam is here,” he said.LEADING JUDGE PLEADS WITH DONEGAL GAA TEAM TO SET EXAMPLE ON ROADS was last modified: October 23rd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal GAA teamJUdge John O’Haganlast_img read more

first_imgGet more out of your DJI drone footage with these optimal settings and tricks for shooting with intelligent flight modes.The following tips come from my experience shooting with a Phantom 4. These techniques also work for other DJI drones with intelligent flight modes like the Phantom 3, the new Mavic, and (to an extent) the Inspire 1.1. Smoother Dolly Shots and Tracking Shots Using Course LockUsing DJI’s Course Lock intelligent flight mode is the easiest way to capture some exceptional tracking shots and dolly shots. This mode, well, locks your drone’s course. The best way to describe this is to compare it to dolly tracks. Setting the Course Lock is the same as putting a dolly on a set of straight tracks. The camera can now only move along the tracks. If you are moving straight forward on the course, you are dollying in on your subject. If you turn the camera to the left or right, the drone still moves along the same path allowing you to capture a tracking shot.Once you lock on a direction, the drone will only move horizontally along the same path. This allows you to just push forward or backward with the right control stick to move the drone. Since it’s locked to the course, you can then move the left control stick left or right to adjust the yaw (the direction the drone’s camera faces).Pro Tip: To help keep your subject in frame, turn on the grid view in the DJI app and keep your subject in the same general area while the drone moves.How to Set Up Course Lock on the DJI Phantom seriesStep One: In the Camera mode of the DJI Go app, tap on the Flight Mode button. (Note: The drone must be in the air to access this button.)Step Two: Swipe to the second page, then select Course Lock.Step Three: Rotate the Phantom and face the camera in the direction you want to course lock onto. Tap Apply and then tap Hide.Step Four: Use the right control stick to move the drone along the course path — pushing the stick up moves it forward along the course lock, no matter which direction the drone faces. Use the left control stick to adjust the yaw and the camera’s position.2. Realistic P.O.V. Without Even FlyingDrones are having an increased presence in major Hollywood pictures. In the 2015 film Chappie, drones were used to capture POV shots for the robotic main character, even during action sequences in which Chappie jumped through a window.We did some POV flying, the POV of one of the robot characters. It looked like a thermal night vision, and reminds me of the Predator. He’s chasing one of the characters and goes flying through the window at full speed. You can’t do that on a helicopter. You could do that on a cable cam — but it goes straight, and it takes time to set up and it doesn’t have that feel or movement and speed. – John Gore, Chappie Drone PilotYou can easily capture a POV with a drone at an extremely low altitude, one that matches the height of your subject. If you main character is a six-foot-tall person, you would want to hover at slightly under six feet and maintain the same altitude during the entire shot.The trick to capturing a realistic POV is to make sure the camera isn’t too perfectly smooth, a slight jolt or movement up and down helps sell the shot. That’s why I just walk with the drone in my hands. It also allows you to easily maneuver through areas that may be a little tricky to fly through.Pro Tip: Remove the propellors, just to give the camera operator the ease of mind of not cutting up your face.Just because you have a drone doesn’t mean it has to be in flight to shoot. This is particularly easy with the Phantom series, as you can just grab onto the drone’s legs. For more of a bounce, use only one hand to hold the drone.The best results come from positioning the camera right in front of your eyes.3. Slower Jib ShotsYou may experience your drone taking off at tremendous speeds, preventing you from getting a nice slow jib shot. You can easily adjust the aircraft’s settings to help get a slower crane shot. Here’s how.Step One: In the DJI app, tap on the icon in the top right corner.Step Two: Under the drone’s MC Settings, click on Advanced Settings.Step Three: Tap on EXP.Step Four: Under EXP, you will see the Throttle speed (in both Normal and Sport Modes). To take off slower, lower the speed by either typing in the number box or drag on the S-curve graph. Find the best speed for your shot.For this example, we will drop it all the way to .20.You have now adjusted the overall throttle speed. Now when you lightly press up on the left control stick, the drone will move up at a slower speed. You can also adjust the Rudder and directional speeds if you need additional camera movement in your shot.This also works in the opposite manner. Just crank up the Throttle speed for faster movements.4. Aerial Surveillance and Free Drone OverlayThis is certainly the easiest move to capture with a drone, but with some editing you can really sell your footage. Grab a few seconds of footage with the camera pointing straight down. Try not to move too fast, as a slower shot will register better for the audience.Step One: Pull the footage into you NLE and then place our free drone camera overlay on top of your clip. (Link below)Step Two: Scale the overlay to the size of your sequence.Step Three: Change the Blend Mode. In this example I used the Screen mode in Premiere Pro.Step Four: Color grade the footage to your liking. In this example, I lowered the Saturation and added a green Tint — all while adjusting the shadows, exposure, and highlights.You can download our free drone overlay (and four other camera overlays) by following the link below.PREMIUMBEAT FREE CAMERA OVERLAYSlast_img read more

first_imgLearning how to properly clean and take care of your lenses is key to keeping them ready for any shoot at a moment’s notice.Cover image via Shutterstock.Lenses can be one of your biggest investments as a filmmaker, so protecting your investment means keeping your equipment clean. Effectively cleaning a lens requires some specific tools and products. (Fortunately, these tools are rather affordable.) While there are many tools on the market to clean a lens, I will break down the favorites of top cinematographers and rental houses.Manual BlowerMost often, the dust you see on your lens is typically just loosely resting on the front glass element. Using a simple manual blower will clear away most of this debris. You will also see people using canned air in this scenario, which is sometimes necessary, but canned air can emit freeon, which can damage the lens. To protect your costly investment, it’s wise to start with a manual blower.Image via Shutterstock.Lens PenA lens pen is the second best tool to help clean your lens. The brush end will clean any debris the blower could not get. (By using very gentle sweeping motions, you can minimize the amount of contact the brush has with the lens.) Even though the brush is specifically for camera lenses, it’s always best to try to minimize the amount of contact between the lens and the brush.Image via Shutterstock.KimwipesKimwipes may be the most surprising lens cleaning tool. At first glance, Kimwipes may seem like something that you typically see in a science lab. That’s because you do. Kimwipes are delicate scientific wipes that are perfect for cleaning a cinema or photography lens. Yes, at first touch they seem rough, like something you’d want to keep away from your lens; however, they are specifically engineered for this task.Pancro SprayPancro spray is the industry standard for cleaning a lens. If you walk into any major rental house, they will be using Pancro spray to clean all of their lenses. When using any spray, it’s very important to note that you never spray directly onto the lens. Instead, when using Pancro, it’s important that you always spray first onto the Kimwipe to avoid any unwanted spray affecting the lens.Once you have sprayed the wipe, you’re ready to clean the lens. Gently wipe any smudges away with the damp portion of the wipe. Once you have thoroughly cleaned your lens, you can use your manual blower again to get rid of any remaining debris.Learning how to effectively and professionally clean your lenses is a great skill to have. Utilizing these techniques will help to ensure that your lenses remain in top shape for any shoot, no matter where you are.last_img read more

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now The very act of selling is about creating a preference to buy from you, to work with you, and to make you part of your prospect’s team, which today means you are part of their brain trust. Right now, it’s easy to be confused by all the things that you see, hear, and read about what you should be doing to create new opportunities, to win new business, and to grow your sales.You are supposed to be adopting digital tools, social selling, leveraging technology, embracing AI, and a dozen other imperatives, all of which may have more or less value depending on what you sell, how you sell, who your clients are, and how you compete and win. There is, however, a single common factor in all of these things that still has the greatest impact on whether you create and win opportunities and grow sales. That common factor is you. Said another way, you are not the largest part of the value proposition.While any of the list of things might improve your results, there is one that counts for more than all the rest combined. The single greater factor is you, the salesperson. Said another way, you are not the largest part of the value proposition. In large part, you are what your dream client is saying yes to—or in some cases, you are what they are saying no to.If you are the largest factor in success or failure, then it naturally follows that the more you improve yourself, the more you improve your results. Or as Rohn put it, “Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.” I might say this more forcefully, strongly suggesting that wishing isn’t going to do anything, and recommending massive action in its place.There are certain character traits and behaviors that the world rewards. Other character traits, beliefs, and behaviors that are punished. The better your character, your beliefs, and the actions that flow from them, the more effective you will be in sales—and every other area of your life. You might think of things like self-discipline, optimism, caring, competitiveness, resourcefulness, persistence, initiative, and communication as “personal” development, but the truth of the matter is that the person you are is also the professional. The Zen masters have another way of saying this, “How you do anything is how you do everything.” This is why personal and professional development cannot be separated.That said, in sales, there are skills necessary to succeed. We know what they are, even if many are not yet being developed by most salespeople or the sales organizations that employ them. They are closing, prospecting, storytelling, diagnosing, differentiating, negotiating, business acumen, change management, and leadership. These skills can be taught, and the greater the skills here, the better the results—provided you get the character traits right.  The personal and the professional are so tightly intertwined that they cannot be teased apart.If you want to create a competitive advantage, the place to start isn’t going to be in anything external. It isn’t going to be found in tools, or social channels, technologies, or the dozens of other things that might capture your attention. The one thing that you most need to change is you, and developing yourself personally and professionally is the very best investment of your time, energy, money, and resources.last_img read more

first_imgDhonis under-utilisation of the offie in the WT20 Dhonis under-utilisation of the offie in the WT20 semi-final against the West Indies on March 31 here and yesterday fuelled speculations that differences have cropped up between the two players.To add fuel to the fire was Ashwins answer in the pre-IPL game media conference here on April 7, when he said he did not bowl when the dew had come in to play a significant role in the lost semi-final against eventual World T20 champions, the West Indies.Dhoni, after the loss to the Windies, had said that he did not call on Ashwin to bowl again after giving him two overs initially, in which he went for 20 runs and also bowled a no-ball off which Man-of-the-Match Lendl Simmons was caught and then recalled to the crease, as he felt dew was making the ball wet and making things difficult for the spinners to grip.He said not playing for suspended IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, which he had captained for the last 8 years since the T20 league inception in 2008 was an “emotional moment”.”As I said it was, I knew I would play for the Pune team but the actual moment comes when you start walking with the team-sheet in your hand till that point of time its only practise and everything.”It was a very emotional moment…since I have started playing T20 cricket represented the Indian cricket team, Jharkhand team in few tournaments and CSK for eight years, so it was a emotional moment not to see myself in yellow,” he quipped.advertisement”But at the same time as professionals, we have to move ahead and also not to prove to anyone but to prove a point to myself that I am making sure whatever I gave in for CSK, I am not leaving any inch that I am not giving for the Pune team,” he said.”So emotion set aside as professional, we had or I had to make sure that I am there how I was for CSK,” he said.”So it was a very emotional movement but at the same time I think…the faith that the franchise has shown not only in me but some of the other players also, we need to justify that,” he said.Dhoni, in fact, started answering questions at the promotional event with a preamble that if he is asked good questions today the number of questions he will be willing to answer to the media would go up next time and if not it will come down back to nil.”Depending on the quality of questions you ask it may go up to six in the next (such press conference) or come back to zero,” he said before answering questions.

She is known for deceptive game. Second game was going my way, but suddenly she played some difficult strokes, she was every where and made it 19-19. At that point, Gopi sir made a big role. He told me what to do and I followed that and the game turned in my favour,” Saina said after the match.”Pressure is less on me now because the last few tournaments I haven’t been able to cross the quarterfinals but I have played well at the Commonwealth Games and Asian Championship. But I can see that the form sometimes goes here and there but I am happy it is coming back in important events.”20092010201120132014201520172018 @NSaina is the first woman to reach the Quarter-Finals of BWF World Championships for 8 consecutive times8#TOTALBADMINTON #TOTALBWFWC2018 pic.twitter.com/05wauwjUwmBWF (@bwfmedia) August 2, 2018Talking about her next match against Olympic champion Carolina Marin, Saina said: “I have played her at Denmark Open last, she is quick and aggressive player and it would be a challenging match for me and I will just look to give my best.”Meanwhile, India’s mixed doubles duo of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Ashwini Ponnappa defeated world No 7 pair of Goh Soon Huat and Shevon Jemie to enter the quarter-finals.advertisementThe Indian pair won 20-22, 21-14, 21-6 in a game that lasted 59 minutes here.”We ended up making lot of mistakes in the first game but we were more sure in the second about our strategy. We are very happy that we could stay focussed and win,”Ashwini told reporters after the match.The world no 40 Indian pair has a tough task at hand tomorrow when it faces Non.1 and top-seeded Chinese pair of Zheng Siwei and Huang Yaqiong.It was an even battle in the opening game as the Malaysian pair managed an 11-8 lead at the break and though Ashwini and Satwik clawed back at 14-14 and even held a slender 18-16 lead at one stage, their rivals were more composed and pocketed the game.In the second game, Goh and Shevon opened up a 5-2 lead but this time Ashwini and Satwik drew parity at 9-9 and then broke off to comfortably bounce back into the contest.In the decider, the Indian pair was simply brilliant as it aggressively dominated the proceedings. They led 11-4 at the interval and continued in the same vein after the breather to storm into the quarters.”We will give our best. We will come all guns blazing. But we can’t think too far ahead (about the medal), so the focus is on tomorrow’s match,” Ashwini said.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
