Over the course the last fifteen months, I have really loved my Canon Rebel T2i (at Amazon); now granted, I wish I could justify the purchase of a Canon 5D MkII, but that's neither here nor there. I really feel like I have pushed the limits of the T2i in many regards and gotten as much out of it as it is capable of producing, but that being said, there is one feature of the camera that I have allowed to go largely underutilized: video. And mostly that's because good video is really difficult to do, and the set-up for doing it particularly well is rather expensive.
But on the occasion exhibited below I was suddenly struck with an idea while sitting at the kitchen table. It involved my Tokina AT-X 35mm macro lens (at Amazon), the T2i, and an ornament that decorates the table's centerpiece. Let me know what you think of this little abstract video; I'm partial to it, but I think that's largely out of obligation due to the extraordinary number of takes and amount of time invested.
