Dirty Laundry:Drop Off Service Only:Photo Shoot: Fall/Winter 2010

Dirty Laundry: Drop Off Service Only: Photo Shoot: Fall/Winter 2010 Collection from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

With a label name like Bedfordstreetlaundry, what choice did we have?

To stay true to its name we headed to the West Village and shot at Bedford Laundry, on Bedford street. Drop off Service only. Our model Cordelia was a little confused at first but got into it pretty quickly. The photos were shot with the Canon 5D2, Zeiss 50mm 1,4, 16-35mm, 24-70mm, the video exclusively with the Panasonic Lumix GH1, the standard Lens, 14-140mm, the Zeiss 50mm 1.4, the Panasonic 7-14mm and the Olympus 17mm 2.8. Iso range on the GH1 800-1600. Edit in FCP.
The challenge of course was to remote control the camera in the top secret gyroscopic underwater housing which we placed in a working washing machine w/o detergent and operated at gentle cycle. It worked as promised, no leakage into the housing and extremely stable during all spin cycles, since I signed a NDA you will have to wait until 04/01/11 to get the total scoop.

  2. As always – beautiful.

    Mike, I’ve been trying to upload HD (widescreen) videos on to my blog, but to no joy. I’ve got a pro account and have allowed my website (wordpress) to embed HD.

    Am I doing something wrong?

  3. thanks, not sure, no problems here – if you get the embed code from youtube or vimeo you shouldn’t have any problems.
