Since I started spending the winter months living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and publishing photographs taken here, quite a few people have written asking what San Miguel is really like.
Well – there is no one "really like", since SMA is such a unique place. But, in the spirit of the season, on Christmas Eve I shot a small video of the festivities in the main square and on one of the side streets near where we live in Centro.
This 3.5 minute video was shot primarily with the Sony NEX-5 and 16mm f/2.8 at ISO 3200. The street segment with the pinata was shot with the Sony NEX-7 using the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8.
Editing and grading was done using Final Cut Pro X along with Irudis Tonalizer.
This video is not intended as a demonstration of anything whatsoever. It's just something that I quickly whipped together to say Feliz Navidad from San Miguel to all of our readers. luminous-landscape.com
