Philip Bloom.

I don't usually do this, but I can't help it. I was browsing Vimeo videos today and saw something that just nailed me to the chair. I don't know exactly what is it in this video that I find so appealing, I still can't pin it down. I just know it's turned into a little obsession. I've been playing it over and over again. There's so much beauty in these images and sounds it just make me (almost) cry. I hope you like it as well. It's magic.



San Francisco's People. Canon 5DmkII 24p from Philip Bloom on Vimeo.

WOW!!
Very simple captures, yet outstanding by all means. I've played the video twice already, kept Pausing/playing a lot. Thanks for sharing this wonderful video.

You no doubt recognize the music as the soundtrack to the 1976 movie Taxi Driver starring Robert DiNiro and Jody Foster.

Nope, but I guess this little film could be taken just about anywhere. It's the photography and faces that got to me.

Thanks for linking. This is very good. I've been on the precipice of buying a 5D all week, and this is extra motivation.

Welcome. It's really great. 5D has been a great "itch" for me for a while now. And so has 7D. But I bought 450D and then 50D and then a selection of lenses in the past two years so I think I should keep low for a while when it comes to cams.

I should.

If that's what results you can get from a 5D, then I WANT one!

Do you think any "tweaking" has been done in terms of colour saturation, and focal length, or is this amazing clarity, etc, what can be achieved naturally?

WOW!

That's 5D and very good lenses combined. Focal length surely wasn't tweaked and colours seem pretty close to what this cams (with proper lenses) can do in low light.

It's really, really stunning.
