A few months ago I decided to shoot a piece about an extremely talented group of artists that work just a few blocks from my office. One of the key goals for me was to go back to the basics - keeping things as simple as possible. No Steadicams, fancy helicopters, or generators for lighting: just simple and straightforward. I wanted to shoot in a style very similar to the way I used to shoot as a still photographer: one camera, one prime lens at a time, one small light - handheld. I think it's very important to exercise these type of "simple" ways of working on a regular basis. For more information on the shoot and gear used go to: blog.vincentlaforet.com/2012/08/07/motoart/
Dedicated to my YiaYia (Grandmother) and all the immigrants that came to America leaving their homeland and families in search of a better life. To all the hopes and the dreams that traveled over the distant oceans, to all the families that have scattered across this new land, may we never forget each other. As my YiaYia says, "Opa!"
