Bill Viola

This is one of the 'Small Saints', I recorded this using my camera.

Whilst the man is on the other side of the water to the camera he is seen as colourless, desaturated. As he passes through the water he reaches the light path and in turn becomes coloured. Now i thought when watching this piece that Viola had edited his footage so that an exaggerated effect could be achieved by adding this colour after the man passes through the water, but to my surprise i was told that this wasn't done at all and the change happened because of the certain way viola had set up his lighting.
