Candles Project One Year anniversary. Long Cool Trip So Far.


By: Jared Abrams

It has been about a year since we shot this little segment for a display in Pasadena, California. The images were projected onto huge glass door in Pasadena for the Holidays. We had to shoot this way to complement French style doors. We shot this with a Canon 7D and a Zeiss 50mm and 85mm at f1.4 800 ISO. I did not try to pull focus. I simply let the actors drift in and out. The only light source is the candle shown in the video.

About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
