This impromptu interview happened by chance.

I had just made some test shots of my friend Geoff at his violin shop when we ran into a gentleman who is in pre-production of his own film project at the coffee shop next door. As he described what camera he wanted to use, I realized it was the type I had (HDSLR). So, I proped my T2i up on a GorillaPod, set exposure and focus, and hit the record button.

E voila... my first interview.

It was shot on the Canon EOS Rebel T2i using a user defined picture style (0,-4,-2,0) that I probably got from Stu Maschwitz Prolost blog.
