Test shoot for 50mm prime

Photo gotten from http://camerani.com/canon-nifty-fifty-50mm-f1-8-prime-lens-first-impressions/

I did a test shoot for the 50mm EF lens that my friend has. He just wanted to see how the images I shot will turn out. Personally, I'm not a fan of the Bokeh very much because I love wide shots and architecture. I like my images to be sharp. The only exception to that being in making narrative films/videos as to keep the focus central. So, well...I did use the 50mm...and here's the result.

P.S. The video is in 360p...it's not optimum...my vimeo page has a higher res link. http://vimeo.com/27590026

Anyways, you know what? Had I have with me my full gear plus audio equipment, I would've done something like Philip Bloom's "Venice's People". Amazing. Alas, gear doesn't come cheap this days, especially for a fresh grad.

...Could have...Should have...made it more narrative.
