I haven’t used Vimeo for a very long time, but in the process of updating some of my social media links, I stumbled across this video that I shot when playing with my Panasonic HVX-200 and the Letus 35mm film adapter for my Canon EOS lenses. This was shot with the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L lens, which is one of my favorites. I’ve always loved the look of a wide angle lens, ever since I started volunteering at the local television station, and gravitated towards being the cameraman with the steadiest hand-held shots. I learned early in my career that the wider the lens, the steadier the shot. The added benefit was also to fit more on the screen, while being very intimate with your subject.
So, in the case of this video, my friend Sang was going for a short bike ride, and I filmed him leaving the house with his Specialized Transition triathlon bike. This also makes me excited for Spring and Summer bike rides.
