Title from a group called “Endanger”, its about despair, survival, hope, loss, times gone by. The sun maybe setting but there is always tomorrow.
Ive been to Exeter today (The Museum and the Library) and
I’m going back tomorrow. I got a book about gadgets from the 50’s to the 90’s and its like childhood revisted (80’s) Im a geek 🙂
This set is by no means the sharpest set Ive shot but it was the first time I’d sued film clips exclusively so perhaps thats the problem, that and not using a tripod. I remember seeing my ribs once upon a time. I do adore the colours in the background.
12 months ago i would have loved the results of this shoot but now I found the errors and faults frustrating, which is probably a good sign, right?
The trouble with film clips is they are moving, and shooting hand held doesn’t really help the process which is why I perhaps get images that aren’t really as sharp as I would like.
This image is a case in point but I still think it works and I’m thinking of trying long exposures with light projection. There will be all these crazy blurred lines and colours and shapes. There are a great number of possibilities and outcomes which will increase the enjoyment of the experimenting.
The colour of the sky hasn’t quite reproduced itself in the image and I must admit I was too lazy to replace it, plus this project isn’t about replacing things. its about capturing and tweaking a little bit, so there is my justification.
This was the first shoot for ages and I need to do more and more.
Tuesday I can more or less blog all day. Which is good most of the time especially when its dark and wet outside.So far its taken me about 40mins to write this line. Its not really anything to do with the fact I have nothing to say Ive been surfing the big bad web for inspiration and avoiding going anywhere near my back account. Ive also posted on FB which 2 weeks ago I swore I would never do again. I go there and people are rude and people have their heads so far up there backsides its scary. Photographers who post run of the mill dross that are about as original as Daily mail headlines. Yes I’m a grump about and feel hacked off but then again I suppose I’m not commercial or trying to be. Just sometimes it would be nice.
