|I affectionately like to call this one 'Sausages on the Beach.'|
But then, it also looks really pretty. Here are two examples I've come across recently of video that I want to try out. One is a sort of behind-the scenes at a shoot with the amazingly talented Sue Bryce, and the other is a promotional piece for Jasmine Star. Both are very visually pleasing. Gorgeous, in fact. And I look at them and think, "I could do that! That's just moving photography! No problem."
Of course, it's oodles more complicated than that. Light, sound, focus, camera movement . . . all headaches. But I do think I'm going to dip my toe in, at the very least. I have a very exciting project coming up in March that I'll tell you more about when it gets closer. And it has a lot to do with video.
Oh yeah, and the photo? I took this when Evan and I were away for the weekend, just a few hours after we got engaged. These are elephant seals during their breeding season. They spend a couple months on land to have their babies. Kind of amazing to watch them all flopping around on the beach. And man! are they noisy. Squealing, groaning, you name it. Fighting, mating, nursing, snoozing . . . it was all happening on this beach.
