REFLECTION: Chas Christiansen for MASH

Mash & Chas put together another dinger of a video. And shot and edited it all on an iPhone.

As artists, we look for tools that allow us to create looks in the recording of light that continue to celebrate bikes and their riders. This new project is an experiment in polarizing reflective light. With support from Apple, we wanted to shoot a video with equipment that is accessible to a large population of the modern world. The best camera you own is the one you have with you, and the smart phone is in your pocket day after day. We used two ExoLens Zeiss wide angle lenses and one B+W circular polarizer mounted to a Movi M5 gimbal. We recorded through the MoviePro app to create a camera rig that shoots duplicate images, with one camera recording all reflectivity, and the second camera, with the polarizer, blocking all the reflective light in the scene. By editing between the two recordings, we created an effect that feels like the cyclist is powering his bike and clothing through the energy he puts into his pedals.

Red Hook | This time, it’s personal

To celebrate the joy that is the Red Hook Crit, four of Specialized’s designers will be personalizing a bike and gear to match each city of the Red Hook Crit—Brooklyn, London, Barcelona, and Milano. Up first, McKenzie Sampson, Apparel and Technical Graphics Designer at Specialized, tackles Brooklyn Red Hook Crit 9, bringing his own illustrative style to the bike, shoes, helmet, and skinsuit.

Slowly Heading in a New Direction

I posted towards the end of the 2015 that the blog will be taking on a new direction in 2016. The transition will be slow (maybe a late winter to late spring launch), but the base is already there. I want to ensure everything I want(ed) this blog to be will/can happen. This is the first post towards that “New Direction.” I have been spending more and more time behind the lens lately. Mostly exploring my city at night, and interestingly enough, following the same paths/place I ride throughout the seasons. I do want to point out, that I WILL NOT be leaving the cycling life behind. If it wasn’t for cycling, the “new direction” would never have happened. I view it more as an evolution or creative growth.

Over the next coming months expect to see more of this “new direction” (It will be more explained as I figure out how to put it all into words) and a continued love for cycling.
