we are austin – austin art glass

Aaron Gross of Austin Art Glass made his Hi-Def debut today in a segment I produced for KEYE42’s new “We Are Austin” show. The program features some of what’s great about Austin and the people that love to keep things weird here. The segment below is from the off-air HD broadcast and includes graphics & music from the show. The video was shot with an HV20 & my coffee table leg steadicam and edited in Final Cut Pro.

HV20 35mm SLR Lens Adapter Macro Video Test 1

i shot some macro video test footage around my house this past weekend. the subject is my favorite, tiny insects. my video rig utilizes the highly versatile erector set rubber tire as the adapter between my hv20 and canon slr lens.

i’ll have to shoot stills next time without the 35mm lens attached for reference of scale. the black bug near the end was about a centimeter long and maybe a millimeter wide. it was pretty amazing to be able to focus in on the pits in its head.

maintaining focus was extremely difficult with this rig. because the lens is about 1/4″ away from the subject, grabbing the focus ring blocked much of the light. gently leaning on the tripod back & forth was the best way i could keep focus for many of the shots.

i’m pleased with the results. i’m hoping to find some more interesting shots this weekend to post.
