Living Up to the Ad

It is rare that products lives up to their TV ad. Usually the ad exaggerates and the product is such a let down when you use it.

The Sennheiser ad depicts high quality audio recording of a jamming session. My friends from the band Dewangga called me up to shoot photos during the recent Sharq Art Mosaic Night. Focusing on photography I didn’t plan to record any video on that particular day.  But I did brought along the Sennheiser Memory Mic just in case.

True to the spirit of an arts festival, an impromptu session did happen between my friends and musicians from Iraq and Japan. So I just put the mic on the table and controlled it from my smartphone. A quick sync later with internal video and from the second camera yields a satisfactory video.
