Canon C500 Movie Work Jan 2017-Aug 2017

I came across a bargain Canon C500 cinema camera in January 2017 and decided to switch from the Canon 5D DSLR school of filmmaking to gain more experience with a more cinematic workflow. (LUTs, 4K, Rec 709, etc)

So here are still frames from the movie tests and projects I’ve been working on in 2017 so far

Art Night 2016, London: Physique of Consciousness, Somerset House

Saturday 2nd July 2016
Anastasia (of www.anastasiapapaeleftheriadou.com fame) was among the participants in Xu Zhen’s Physique of Consciousness (link: http://www.artnight.london/events/xu-zhen/). Art Night saw events take place all over London, we also took in Film Title Poem in http://www.artnight.london/events/jennifer-west/, a surprisingly evocative collection of film titles (just the names in appropriate styles) shot and projected on 35mm film.

The evening did not start well, with torrential downpours preceding Anastasia’s slot at 6pm. This did not stop some Londoners from warming up beforehand:

Just in time, the sun came out and I was able to take many shots. I tended to stay in one place and not move around. I moved in as close as some of the audience and onlookers, but I have not learned to get the best image at any cost just yet. Though the participants were deep in concentration, having a photographer approach with a big lens must be off-putting, and it was a very tranquil environment created by Xu Zhen.

Thus, I chose the long lens to be less intrusive. The Canon 5D and 70-200mm lens are weather-sealed, and I can confirm they still work after being soaked!

The participants went through 10 sets of exercises, instructions were read in a soothing voice, with Xu Zhen himself appearing on screen, floating serenely in the clouds.

Bianca also took part! Finally, the sun emerged to help with some good back lighting

Photos, films: May 2016

Here’s an update with some portraits, headshots, images and stills from video projects I’ve been involved with since January 2016.

Lighting, shadow, location and perspective were the main areas I looked to vary from shoot to shoot.

I alternate between the Hasselblad H3D-39 with 80mm HC lens, plus HC extender, and the Canon 5D Mark II for the still shots. The 5D and 24-70 Canon L lens and 70-200mm Canon L were used for the video shoot

Nico’s Masters film was shot in Kemble, Gloucestershire (supposed source of the Thames), Hampstead Heath, London and the Isle of Grain, Kent: https://vimeo.com/171949295

For Anna’s video, we filmed in a studio with continuous lighting and a white backdrop. An iPad with a teleprompt app was balanced above the camera for Anna to read her prepared script.

Spain 2016 – Los Caños De Mecas, Barbate

I spent the first week of 2016 at my friends’ new beachside property in Los Caños de Mecas. It was a wet week but much nicer when the sun popped out occasionally. Taking the dog for walk, there were other dog walkers from all over the world, surfers, kiters, and canoeists to encounter.

Nearby cities and towns include Barbate, Tarifa, Cadiz and Jerez. Morocco can be seen when the weather is clear.

Action shots from 2015

Here are some shots from various portrait and fashion shoots of mine from 2015
