Lower East Side People: Canon 5D mark II

Lowa East Side People: Canon 5D mark II from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

Video portraits: The idea was to shoot video that looks like “breathing” photographs and use transitions that look like closing and opening aperture blades on a large format camera. The east village is the perfect place for this kind of project, known for its diverse community, one will find the most interesting faces to photograph. Tripod, 5D2 with 100mm 2 and 75mm-150mm, one afternoon of shooting. Enjoy! Music: http://mathieu.lozinguez.free.fr/

    I noticed you said you used daylight. Did you use any reflectors or control at all? Loved the end results. And I liked the soundtrack.

    Beautiful!!! What picture style did you use, and what kind of grading? I’d love to replicate these wonderful hard contrasty look where every pore of the skin shows. Any tips?

    beautiful images but what up with the oom-pa-pa music. That I would change. A bit cliche of the same tired tenement-era LES. PIck it up and back it to something else.
