Silentium Est Aureum, Nikon D90 + Lensbaby

SILENTIUM EST AUREUM Nikon D90 + Lensbaby from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

Not much I can say about this one, just sit back and enjoy the next 60 sec! Got the idea after stumbling across Buster Keaton clips. Arri lights, black backdrop, Lensbabies with plastic lens, single glass and double glass. I really like the plastic lens effect, gives a nice glow. Of course this can be done in post, just does not look the same and takes longer. This session wa a lot of fun, this is Lee at her best! Nikon D90. Royalty free music from Twistedtracks.com.

  1. Well done, I think you accomplished your goals very well. I can’t imagine working with such a personality in front of the camera! Birds are enough work for me :) I guess photographers are going to start to learn how to do these types of things or be left behind.
