This video highlights the part of the city that Philadelphians want to capture most.
I wanted to make a Holiday video to capture the spirit of the city at this time of year because it's always so beautiful, and it goes by too fast. While I was filming in Rittenhouse I looked around and saw other people photographing a lot of the same things with their smart phones. I decided to ditch my plan, and just capture the things people around me were photographing because those are the things most dear and important to them.
Locations: Rittenhouse Square, Passyunk East, Wanamaker, 13th & Tasker, Love Park
Music: Prelude No. 7 by Chris Zabriskie
Camera: Canon Rebel t3i
Lens: Canon 50mm f/1.4, Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6
Every year there's a christmas market outside the town hall in Oslo, Norway.
The combination of -8 degrees Celsius (17.6 degrees Fahrenheit), no DSLR rig, and me not wearing enough clothes resulted in a lot of shaky footage. I tried to stabilize in post, but alas.
Anyway, hope you can see past this and instead find yourself rejoicing in the fact that christmas time is here!
