Cinematographer Patrick Sean Kennedy shoots his first Petzval Music Video

The Lomography x Zenit Petzval Lens was one of the main conspirators behind this video featuring singer-songwriter and musician Shane Alexander!

For his new video, cinematographer Patrick Sean Kennedy modified the Petzval for recording video with his Cinoflex Camera Package. A recreation of the brass 1840 Austrian lens that renders faster and a smoother focus for the 21st century use when combined with compatible Canon EF and Nikon F mount cameras, the new Petzval lens provides crisp focus of the subjects at the center, deep color saturation, and a beautiful blurred swirl around the subject, giving a dreamy, surreal aesthetic.

Kennedy’s first music video shot with the Petzval lens features musician and singer-songwriter Shane Alexander. Alexander grew up listening to Cat Stevens, Harry Chapin, The Moody Blues and Simon and Garfunkel, but was even more inspired by Neil Young. As he grew older, he created his own delicate, soulful, and enchanting sound. With help from Tim Arasheben, the Petzval lens was mounted on a camera rig, the Cinoflex Camera System, using a Canon 5D, resulting in an amazing video that showcases the capabilities of the Petzval Lens.
