Bambu & Geo strut their stuff.
 

On the Saturday before the Christmas holiday I had the honor of documenting behind the scenes video and photography for Bambu (formerly with Native Guns) and Geo (front man from Blue Scholars), two well known hip hop artists. The video was produced in collaboration with Kidheroes Productions and Xylophone Films, with production by Crew-152 at Ohlone College. I can't give any specific details about what the video was about, but I'll say that it was a lot of fun, quite funny, and had a positive message. 

 

Officially I was part of the crew to do behind the scenes video, however I also took a few stills as well, mainly with my walk-around camera the Canon EOS M. With this little guy, I shot solely with the EF-M 22mm F/2.0. I shot the behind the scenes video with my main camera the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. On this full frame body, I shot everything with the tank like 24-70 2.8mm F/2.8L. Since I was alternating between video and stillsI had to move fast and document the action both on and off set I didn't have time to switch lenses. However having lenses that were fairly fast, I was able to shoot using the available light. Although I can’t show any production stills yet, our cast / crew group shot can be seen above.

 
Here are a few more photos okayed by the director to be released in anticipation of the video release. I'm currently working on the Behind the Scenes video as you read this!
