Introducing the first user-generated HD Video Contest where photographers become filmmakers, and we all see beyond the still. To kick off the contest, Canon asked me to interpret what story I saw beyond the still, and to tell that story with the new Canon EOS 7D. My short film will be the first chapter of seven, each ending with a still photograph for the next aspiring filmmaker to interpret. Posing the question to everyone, what do you see beyond the still?
A special thanks to the girls from Pearl London and Pure Storm.
We had the use of Sophia for a few moments... so we thought we would give a quick test to our equipment.
In this test we were using a Vision Research Phantom HD slow motion camera shooting to a 120 gig ram stack at 1000frames per second, the lens was a 35mm Carl Zeiss Planar T* wide open. Please forgive the slight loss of focus at 1.35 the depth of field was less than 5cm, sophia (skipping in 15cm high heels) seems to have missed her mark very slightly and at the same time our focus puller seems to have been briefly distracted somehow?
If you like this Video please take a good look at our other experiments here or at our website: photography-factory.co.uk
If you are inspired by this or any or our videos and would like to get some slow motion photography - please get in contact we are a lot of fun to work with. At photography-factory are are very experienced in slow motion, quite reasonable, and make our livings from creative photography. Plus we need money to pay for more tests...
