RED CAMERA EVENT WITH BRONCOLOR



So last week was Photo Expo, and it turned out to be a busy one.
We did a RED Camera event with Broncolor, sort of showing how a photographer used to Bron's light modifiers for strobes can move into their HMI range using similar if the not the exact same modifiers.  The crowd was appreciative and interested, except for the older German tourist dude, who pelted us unrelentingly with extremely specific technical questions that could only pertain to him.  I was bored halfway through the first third of each of his questions, and had very little interest in humoring him...  Luckily Julian and Matt (the RED Tech were willing to go the extra mile).
Here are a few stills along with the footage we shot...
It's silly, but fun...

behind the scenes (weird stuff)


When Marie Claire (China) called and asked me to re-interpret a favorite story/fairytale/ or fantasy, I sprang into action....trying to get Morrissey to ride a unicorn through a cherry blossom storm.  Well- that fell through, and we decided on the tale of Pierrot, the sad sad little clown.
Check out this behind-the-scenes photo and let me know what you think..
more to come...

While shooting a jewelry campaign for Asha recently,  we did this little web video.
We decided to shoot the ads using the Broncolor Kobolds (HMIs), so adding the video aspect was really a cinch.  It was my first time doing video with the Canon 5D MkII, and I was pleasantly surprised by the results...
I am excited to shoot more using this combo...
