Hello, I live in Paris and Los Angeles and I work in the movie business as a actor, but I'm passionate crazy about photos. It all started 12 years ago when I was on holidays and a designer showed me what you could do with Photoshop to enhance photos, I immediately bought the Canon 350D and did a lot of training to learn photography and retouching. I worked on a project for the last 12 years called "Paris Cinéma", the idea was to take beautiful moments of lights in Paris to give them a movie look. Some of the photos are heavily retouched, some are not at all. All that matters to me is the emotional impact. Lately I started doing portraits compositing. Meaning taking a person on a neutral background and mix that up with a nice background. If you want to know more about my retouching techniques, you can check out my tutorials on using Lightroom and Photoshop at : I hope you like what I do if you have any technical questions do not hesite to ask. I still have a lot to learn and share ! Serge

Here is a 2 minutes short action moviel/clip shot entirely with the new Iphone 4S. I wanted to test the new stability feature of the camera and I was impressed by the result.

I shot this in the forest of Fontainebleau, (near Paris) with the automn colors, I saw that this was a perfect time of the year to do that.

The story is about a mysterious boy leaving in the forest with some specials abilities...

More technical infos :

To stabilize the camera I used :

- Smoothshot stabilizer

- A DLSR rig that I bought from ebay and mounted the Iphone on it

I edited in Final Cut pro and graded the scene with Red Giant Colorista and looks II.

The score is from "Proscores"

Hope you like it !
