Retiring firefighter Randy Scherman prepares a special meal of fresh-caught salmon and oven brown potatoes for his crew at Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue in West Linn, Oregon.

Created for Zooppa.com's AllRecipes: Firehouse Cooks video contest.

Camera: Canon 60D
Lenses: Canon 50mm f/1.4 (fishing, interviews), Tamron 17-50mm VC f/2.8 (firehouse, store, cooking)
Audio: Sennheiser MKE-400 on-camera shotgun, Sennheiser Evolution G3 wireless lavalier
Specs: 1920x1080, 24p, constant 1/48 shutter, mostly wide open apertures
Editing: FCP (no Looks, AE, etc.)
Music: Pond5.com

Notes: 50mm lens is super soft at f/1.4 as it creates a green glow on the edges of subjects. Very cool lens but it has some issues until f/2.8, which at that point negates the wide aperture. Still fun to use, and a great deal for $300 used. The Tamron 17-50mm is a good all-purpose lens but it has a very digital video look. The depth of field always seems in focus even at f/2.8, and it just has a much more realistic look than the 50mm.
