Vincent Laforet Takes on DigitalRev’s Cheap Camera Challenge
You’ve most certainly heard of Vincent Laforet, you just may not recognize the name. He is the mind and talent behind such short films as Reverie, Nocturne, and Mobius. In fact, when Canon was introducing video functionality into their DSLRs, they used Laforet’s footage to put it on the map. Now DigitalRev is giving him a new challenge, a LensBaby Composer and a Canon A2e.
Using only two rolls of films and a cheap camera set up, DigitalRev is hoping to prove the age old argument that its not the equipment that makes the photographer, but rather the other way around. In the past, they’ve done this same experiment with the names of Zack Arias, Chase Jarvis and Eric Wong. Watch the 12 minute video above to see how Vincent Laforet works to get that perfect tiltshift shot, even when it is with lower quality gear. The photos from the session are attached below. What do you think, did Vincent Laforet prove that great photos can be taken with any camera?
