One Lens, One Camera – Amy Lyne’s “Butterfly Project” (5D2 & 24-70mm f/2.8)

FacebookTwitterStumbleUponShare

The Canon Professional Network posted an interview with photojournalist Amy Lyne.

Photojournalist Amy Lyne recently embarked on a personal project that took her away from the world’s more precarious trouble spots and into the world of the New York City Ballet, where she documented the graceful moves of a ballerina with one lens, one camera and one single-minded vision. CPN Editor David Corfield finds out more about her ‘Butterfly Black’ project.

For her project Amy Lyne used an EOS 5D Mark II with an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens. One lens, one camera. About her work she says:

My main focus is documentary photography and for the past couple of years I have also been working with different dancers on personal projects, most recently with Gina Pazcoguin on a piece called ‘Butterfly Black’. It’s a bit of a departure from the work I normally do. As a documentary photographer, I always try to be as invisible as possible; observing, waiting to capture a moment. I never ask someone to do something again or differently for fear of compromising the integrity of the “scene”, as it is someone’s real life. With a subject like dance, on the other hand, I don’t have to think about the consequences of my actions from a humanitarian or journalistic standpoint. Here the photographs are pure imagery, so I am free to shoot with abandon. It is really exciting to collaborate with dancers and watch things take form as a co-creator

Wanderment – A Time-Lapse that will Awake Your Wanderlust (and make you dream)

WANDERMENT from The Upthink Lab on Vimeo is a special time-lapse, one that reminds us how beautiful nature is. And a well made time-lapse too.

WANDERMENT is the result of a 12-month collection of 4K time-lapse sequences captured while hiking and backpacking in the Appalachian Mountains, and in California and Alaska. Contrasting landscapes are juxtaposed using color and b&w techniques. It’s a video that has a good chance to put you into reflective moments.

Among the many used gear there is a EOS 6DEOS 5D Mark III, a Rebel T3i/EOS 600D running Magic Lantern, various Samyang prime lenses, and more (full list here)
