This is a video about how I do a pastel – a pastel filmed from start to finish. I’ve always called pastels “magic colored dust,” and they proved to be a colorful subject. Recently I read a quote by the late Louise Bourgeois (rest in peace) that inspired my approach to this film, “I am not what I am, I am what I do with my hands…”
Filmed with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens, and a Tokina 100mm macro f2.8 lens – love these lenses. Edited (with no color correction, only some adjustment to the levels) in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4.
