Video Portrait of Brant Slomovic's "GLENGARRY"
  • Brant Slomovic - GLENGARRY
    Portrait of a photographer
  •     Brant Slomovic is a photographer in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). I was hired to shoot a video portrait, of sorts, to help promote his January 2011 exhibition entitled GLENGARRY at Toronto Image works in downtown Toronto. Please select one of the HD options if your computer has the necessary muscle to play it.

        The above video was shot with a Nikon D7000 in 1080p HD with a variety of lenses along with a mix of natural and artificial continuous lights for the second half where he's seated inside the gallery. Aside from asking Brant to write his own script (the second half of the above video was unscripted, and I found his words flowed much easier when he was speaking with his heart rather than reciting an artist's statement, a necessary evil), this was a self-produced project from start to finish, and delivered within five business days.

        Below are some shots from the gallery and some portraits of Brant. I don't often shoot portraits using only available light, but it worked better than my usual assortment of speedlights and modifiers.
