I recently received my twoneil 35mm adapter and was contemplating the first thing I was going to shoot. One thing was for sure, I didn't want it to be a "test." There are already plenty of twoneil tests to view on vimeo.

Those who know me will attest that I am a bit obsessed when it comes to shaving. For the past two years I've been exclusively using products from The Art of Shaving and last year my wife purchased a straight razor and strop for my birthday. It's taken a while to learn the technique and I'm still learning with every cut, but I've been using it ever since.

The idea of shooting a shaving video crossed my mind on more than one occasion, so I thought this was a good a time as any. The footage was shot on my Canon HV30 using a Nikon 50mm f/1.8D lens and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro. I wanted the video to have a sort of washed out, clean, and sanitized look so I used Magic Bullet for color correction and implemented the "Punchy" preset.
