Strings effects

my work here:


I also work is websites/applications design/dev :




This videos is currently getting a hit of visits from Redit website. There is a better HD version here with adjusted colors & contrast, but I've lost the audio track in the process.


Anyway, I'll post a better quality video shortly using the same technique. For the curious it's shot at 1/4000 seconds with a 50mm f1.4 lens(wide open).


I've been really impressed today by similar footage of a contrabass player, so I decided to experiment a bit. I wasn't able to get such fast shutter speed on my camera, but with the new firmware Canon released lately, I can finally use the manual adjustments while shooting video and pump it all the way to 1/4000 of a second: yeah!


For the ones wondering, this is a real-time video shot at 30fps. It's not slow motion and it hasen't been created using a software, it's just the natural vibrations of the strings.


Everything on this video end up being very rough, but for only few hours of total production, I guess it's not that bad.
