New Jersey Videography: Macro in C Major

This morning I wanted to record HD video with a very closeup view of my fingers on the fretboard of my acoustic guitar.  I also hoped to get high quality audio from the brief recording.  All of this can be quite a challenge for a hackjob of a guitar player like myself!

Anyways, I aligned my Canon EOS 60D DSLR into position, manually prefocused my Tamron SP 90mm VC macro lens, moved an articulating LED lamp close to my hand for lighting, and dialed in my exposure settings on the camera.  Many many takes later I did an acceptable job of playing a short musical package, and was able to get some portions of my hand and fretboard partially in focus while doing so.  The post-processing was no walk in the park either!
