Art Weekend is alive! I love collaboration. The synthesis of photography with HD Video, analog art and music-making all in one space was electrifying. I decided to make a promo piece for my upcoming gallery show for cut paper art, which I shot using my an MC-36 Remote Release Cord and my Nikon D700 in JPG mode, high quality/small size. I set it to 10 sec intervals with a 5-second delay (to avoid camera shake), pre-focused in manual and set custom white balance (since adjusting after wards on 8-bit JPGs is a bear...). One of my favorite methods is to use Live Preview to compose the shot right after focus and white balance. I flew the camera on the top of some old FOBA Combitube I picked up over a decade ago, since my tripod doesn't go to 8 ft. in the air ;)
Part of the fun was multitasking, and by this I mean that I was engrossed in making art, listening to Brian and Chrstian (a.k.a. Attack and Release) make music and thinking about timing and composition as a film editor and DOP while choosing camera angles and focal lengths simultaneously. Total creative mash-up. The result is this video. Enjoy!
