David Leffel on Making Brush Strokes from Gregory Storm on Vimeo.

First clip from an upcoming DVD series I directed for the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art –
We shot it with three 5D Mark IIs. Lenses were 70-200mm 2.8L, 85mm 1.8, 28-135mm, 24-105 4L. Audio was recorded with G2 wireless into a Zoom H4N.

No real color correction. This was a quick edit that I did to give them something to show at ComicCon. Two of the three cameras were not touched at all in post and the only thing I had to do to the other was reduce the saturation a little.

The images from this camera are great but we tried to get the best color we could by syncing the balance of the colors in-camera by adjusting the white balance manually using the kelvin setting.


This is just a fun video of the impact of high shutter speed:

stunning bass-string shot from urbanscreen on Vimeo.

Frequenzy of the bass strings and high shutter speed of the camera lead to this suprising string-wobble footage.

There is no slowmo applied to the take. Sound is original.
video was filmed with a Canon 5D MarkII , Nikon 50mm lens on 1,8f.

LAVAL 23.07.2009 from Regis Hervagault on Vimeo.

Laval, Pont d'Avesnières entre 20h et minuit avec le Canon 5DmkII.
Today was one of those wonderful days when the sun plays hide and seek behind morphing cloudy curtains.
I went back to the river to shoot another bridge next to the illuminated church.
By midnight, I got lucky forcing my FD lenses into maximum aperture for wonderfull chromatic aberration, coma, awesome flaring and all kinds of lovely optical artefacts from passing cars and city lights…
Aujourd'hui le soleil jouait à cache-cache derrière de magnifiques rideaux de nuages. Je suis retourné à la rivière pour filmer la tombée de la nuit sur le pont près de la basilique du quartier d'Avesnières. Vers minuit, j'ai débridé mes objectifs vintages pour obtenir de splendides aberrations optiques en interaction avec les voitures du boulevard et les lumières de la ville.

great music by mindthings, found at jamendo !
