Created for the Silicon Valley ArtShots 2010 competition, "In Close: Fine Art Photography" was my entry, and ending up being the grand prize winner.
ArtShots is a collaboration between Artsopolis (artsopolis.com) and the San Jose 48 Hour Film Project (48hourfilm.com/sanjose). Their vision was to pair up local artists with local filmmakers. The filmmakers would then create a 30-90 second video about the artist. There were painters, musicians, and other artists involved in the project.
I was paired up with Carl Couchman (couchmanphoto.com), a fine arts photographer who specializes in photos using a view camera and large format film.
Thanks for watching and enjoy!
