Bar Mitzvah Ceremony Video at the Chart House, Redondo Beach

In the hands of an amateur this video would have been an epic fail due to the flood of bright sunlight behind the ceremony. Having filmed in this location before, I knew exactly what the conditions would be and I shared this with Brooks’ parents ahead of time just to be sure there were no unreasonable expectations that could lead to disappointment. They wanted their guests to enjoy the spectacular oceanfront background and rejected my suggestions to set up a backdrop that would block the back light, and I found that completely understandable.  We all agreed up front that in order to get proper exposure of Brooks the background would appear solid white and that’s exactly how it turned out. I’m very content with the results. Brooks and his family look fabulous and this talented young man delivered a stellar performance. Way to go, Brooks! This was one of those situations where a little experience goes a long long way.
