The Evil Queen II

A while back - the last time England had sunshine, in fact - I popped off to the local woods with the lovely Mellie D in order to mess around with vaseline-smeared filters and prime lenses; going through the footage recently I was struck by how good it looked as a series of still photographs, so here are some 1080 screen grabs. All shot with a Canon 5D MkII, a hefty tripod, and three lenses; a Tomioka 55mm f/1.4, a Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5, and an Olympus 24mm f/2.8.

It has to said that Roger Corman did more with less. A pretty girl, a handsome man, some ugly people, some woods, a rubber octopus, a few prop guns and some blanks; that's pretty much all you need to make a film. And a car.
