A behind the scenes look at a shoot I did with artist/musician Dorian Buacum. We tried a couple different looks, one using a standard reflector with a 10˚ grid, allowing the light through a 1/2 slit using tape to cover the rest. The music in the video is Dorian's work and huge thanks to him.
Back in 2006 I wrote a .pdf about purism and street photography and posted it on deviantart.com. I featured not only my own work but many of my street-shooting friends from all over the world.
Having wrote that it was always in the back of my mind that I wanted to update it. Yes, I could have written something yet I really wanted to do it with video. Until the Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 came about -- and with the most recent firmware update -- i couldn't have achieved "the look" i wanted.
Over the course of two months this summer I enlisted the help of some friends to shoot ... I dunno ... the next volume or whatever this is.
In this video you'll see my work and that of photographers Severin Koller, Frank Jackson and Mario Anzuoni, all with different perspectives for shooting street photography.
There are too many people to thank; please read the credits at the end of part three.
I hope you enjoy it. I know that I had an amazing time shooting and editing it.
