Here’s an old magic trick I learned. I’m no magician, so I’m not so smooth at this.I’m finally getting a good video workflow going. I shot this with on my Canon 5D2 with my 50mm 1.4. I had the shutter speed set at 1/60 and the aperture at f4.0. The only lighting I used was a small desk lamp on the floor in front of me, pointed up at me. I did all the post processing in After Effects and added music with Soundbooth.

I’m officially done with my little piece of the Art Crawl. It went way better than expected. I’ve learned so much from this experience. First is that it takes an immense amount of time to prepare for a photography showing and because of that, I’m way too tired tonight to tell you all about it. I will be exploring the Art Crawl for myself tomorrow afternoon, so I can talk about that too. I just poured the little bit of energy that I had left already into this and now I need my sleep. I took a lot of photos of the Art Crawl and I will be posting them on my Flickr account. I have already started a set for it. Right now I have some shots from my setup process. I will try to post more tomorrow. I also have a bunch of photos of my friend, Star, and her magic performance. Special thanks to her for letting me use part of her space for my showing.

The Saint Paul Art Crawl is next weekend, April 25-27. I will be showing a small sample of my photography this year thanks to Star, who is letting me use part of her space.

If you keep up with my Twitter feed, you can kind of see what I’ve been doing to prepare. I finally ordered my print from Mpix Saturday night. I really like Mpix. I’ve used them several times for my photos and every time, they have came out brilliantly.
