I enjoyed the video. Thanks
Well, I loved the "trailer", though it is longer than most. Will I want to see the entire piece when released? Here's why I ask. I'm presently engaged in making a semi feature length video (not about photography) and have been toying with the idea of making a trailer for it, certainly no longer than 2 minutes. Yet, I found this to be entirely engaging, possibly subjectively due to familiarity with the subject matter. Was it done slickly enough, like a Peter Lik video, so that I wasn't aware of the length? Anybody think it too long? Just wonderin'.
I'm impressed..the artist is always more interesting than the art...and Mr. Kenna is truly a great artist!!
I found the trailer overly long and the music choices to be bombastic and inappropriate - at times it felt like I was watching a promo for some realty TV show like The Amazing Race. The Hokkaido doco viewable at his website (under 'Interviews') is excellent.
Always good to see him work. Thanks!
1. I could never be a documentary photographer who traveled the world, because I couldn't eat the food. Did you see what she pulled out the mud?!? BLEH!
2. What was that 2 foot long lens he had on his hassy?
I did enjoy the video, but I think it's No Reservations meets Michael Kenna photo shoot. But it does show Mr. Kenna soaking up the local culture which is a part of his art. He's not just a documentarian.
does anybody know the viewfinder and lenses seen at minute 0:28 and 0:50?
Lol, he's not a documentarian at all.
Viewfinder looked like a PME in both scenes. Lens at 0,28 was a 120/4 Cf, at 0,50 was a Superachromat 250/5,6 CFi with what looked like a 2x converter. Great video and thanks for sharing by the way! I´m astounded how much trust Michael Kenna is putting in his little ballhead when carrying his tripod over the shoulder with the camera still screwed on.
A little too much trust in the tripod overall.
I've done this and this makes me feel better knowing that's it's happened to someone at that level.
thx, how do you know that the 250mm is the superachromat?
OHHHH indeed! But to be honest, I never would have left the camera alone in those conditions. He's appropriately 'zen' about the whole thing.
It's happened to me in a river, but the camera hit an exposed rock. Didn't get wet, but broken lens - only a nifty fifty, thank god.
Wait, no! It´s just the plain Sonnar 250/5,6 CFi. The Superachromat does have two blue rings painted on the barrel. I forgot...
