The City of Samba

“Just when you think tilt shift may be overdone,” Todd Dominey writes, “this comes along. Glorious.” If nothing else make sure to see the Carnival section that starts around 2:20.

    You know, it’s funny…I was all prepared to roll my eyes at more tilt/shift, but it was done really well. And the Carnival section was gorgeous!

    Yes, for sure, way over-done.

    Too bad for this video. Looking past the technique, the photography is actually beautiful – each and every scene is well-seen. The beach stuff particularly, and the carnival stuff as well. But the beauty and purity of the photographer’s vision is all flattened out by the silly tilt-shift/sped-up-stop-action/flavor-of-the-month treatment.

    Oh my, this too shall pass…
