Based on this premise, I decided to shoot a simple hand-held video of relatively common and unremarkable objects found in my kitchen with a Nikon 50mm f/1.2 lens. The intention is to try to make the mundane beautiful.
You be the judge:
Make sure you select 1080p HD to see the videos in their best quality.
Below are two videos I made for the Randall Museum in San Francisco. Artnok Kontrabecki teaches Ceramics there. He had heard that someone once referred to one of my sewing machine videos as "sewing machine porn" and asked me to make him some "ceramics porn." Again; you be the judge...
BTW, here's the Blog on sewing machines and the "sewing machine porn" video - an overly industrious, or dare I say, prudish "blog administrator" removed the "porn" comment.
All videos shot on a Sony NEX-7 with Nikon's 50mm f/1.2 lens
