Vimeo Videos

I thought I’d share with you these three fantastic videos that I’ve found on Vimeo. I love the use of time lapse and slow motion in in these videos and most of the effects are achievable with the Canon 5D / 7D and the Nikon D3s. I’m going to start playing with these cameras but I wish I had the time and imagination to get something similar. Some hope !! Enjoy and I hope you get some inspiration.

Tim Wallace working with a Hasselblad

I thought I’d share an excellent video with you, which was shot by my work colleagues Rob and Paul. The video features the excellent photographer Tim Wallace, who was recently a Hasselblad photgrapher of the month. Tim has done many roadshows for Calumet around the country and his shows are always well attended and very popular. He is extremely highly regarded in the industry and his work proves why. He uses Profoto lights and shoots all his work with a Hasselblad. Here’s a link to his website. http://www.ambientlife.co.uk/

Rob shot all the footage on a Canon Eos 5D MK2 with a variety of lenses. He also used a glide track, Zacuto Rig and a helicopter ! Nice !

Enjoy the video, especially as the weather is so cold here in the UK at the moment !
And a big well done to Tim, Rob and Paul.

Canon 5D and 7D for video.

I have recently done my first video work with the Canon 5D. Video has become a massive growth area for Canon and their range of cameras. Colleagues and clients have been waxing lyrically about the capabilities of the 5D and 7D, and after using the 5D and seeing the results, I couldn’t agree more. The quality is fantastic and the cameras are very easy to use. I was pleased to be able to help out my good friends Simon McComb and Chris Whitehead on a short video for The Macmillian Trust. Simon directed, filmed and edited, and Chris produced for the project. I helped out with the filming along with Robin from the Pro Centre and another friend of Chris’s called Ian. I mounted the 5D on a figrig and shot with lenses 85mm 1.2, 50mm 1.2 and the 35mm 1.4. The lenses proved to be the right choice although I could have done with a longer lens. We had to capture the atmosphere and fun of the Brick Lane Takeover, a music event in East London that was being sponsered by Macmillian. The figrig proved to be an inspired choice as it allowed a bit more freedom than a tripod. Basically the figrig is a steering wheel but it provides a solid base with which to film. The only drawback is its tricky to use follow focus with it. Still it did the job. The whole evening was a success, however it was quieter than we’d have liked due to a clash with the World Cup. Simon spend about three weeks editing the video and we are all pleased with the results. Here is the video and I hope you enjoy it.

The Third & The Seventh by Alex Roman.

I came across this video today and thought I’d share it with you. Like most photographers I’ve got a real passion for the moving image.
The film The Third & The Seventh by Alex Roman is on vimeo and is exceptional with truly wonderful imagery. The architecture is amazing. Play it widescreen, sit back and enjoy.
