Motion Marinade- The Project

A8CEEE71-7164-4F18-8AC2-707D4B79D800

In 2012 I began seriously getting into digital photography and would take 20 to 30 photos to get the shot I wanted . Nothing like when I first started with a film camera and every photo was a different shot. Is because I have become lazy or a perfectionist the reality is I don’t delete photos and have thousands of photos on sd cards and hardrives which are organised in dates which had become forgotten.

In 2018 when I was going through the photos and saw the slight movement between the photos ( I actually thought I’d discover motion pictures. Lol) I decided to join them altogether to make little slideshows.Whether it was nostalgia of looking at my children when they were younger and reliving the times I bribed them to be in my crazy photos it gave me the motivation to organise and make more videos and Motion Marinade the project began. I have since become obsessed with creating these videos that are a cross between a stop motion Slideshow Or a pixilation which I have most recently been informed of while doing an animation course. From stop motion to time lapse I have attempted them anything that is essentially a photograph with motion I explore now I have realised I can attach them on here I’ll be sharing more.
This was the first moving image I created from photos I took of my daughters In 2014 A Fairy Tale. I have so many more videos old and new that I’ve created and I’m also currently making a short film that I’ll be releasing later this year.

Rain Drops -A Moving Image

While in lockdown my backyard has become a Sanctuary a place to retreat and observe and immerse in the wonderful details of nature I have taken a lot of photos and Moving  Image  videos throughout the pandemic.

This particular morning I looked out my kitchen window It had just rained the sky was clearing and the sun was rising and the tree was covered in raindrops which were glistening. I couldn’t quite capture what I saw though it was truly magical  . I proceeded to explore some more and was particularly attracted to the drops on a leaf the suns rays made it glow a brilliant white. Below is a video of the magic raindrop and some photos.

Seawinds, Arthur’s Seat. Up in the clouds

I’d been watching the peak of Arthur’s Seat be swept over with a thick mass of clouds on and off all day. Finally after work I ventured up the hill to investigate. When I arrived to SeaWinds a blanket of cloud swept over. I was thankful that I may get Some foggy photos. The fog came and went in waves. When it cleared I was disheartened though my spirits were quickly picked up with another wave of cloud that settled over the trees.

I’ve been wanting to get up to Seawinds for a while to get some photos for some new jewellery pendants. I’ll share the new pendant design next week. In the meantime here’s a collection of photos of Seawinds before the leaves change colours. Which will be very soon.02E12D6F-43ED-47DE-92B9-F0C2C503AC3E46C13D02-D85A-436F-91B3-9BFAD4289041B1DC1CCA-C5F3-4CA8-BBD7-1E2EAB197F82B53F9E76-DA1D-478F-AD74-589A691D8041DE296E59-5210-4FEC-B414-C892D01C29AF69A37F9B-6EBD-497E-83DD-355DCBC0BF89D4584B80-ECE0-4277-B6F1-7930CD17A92A709C9588-E8A0-478A-B879-350A297D16E983A49851-2923-4927-BA22-DE60B6EB7CFF63BFBEA2-491B-48A2-BF1E-5A92A0E8D810B442B76E-7819-4D5B-8E1B-65566A10A6C940262DE9-100D-42A1-B999-A888F132CD44E2518918-D657-492D-9A34-461FDA923EDD85B50BFC-06FB-4A48-B0FB-6CAD19515AA631E9D905-37AB-4642-86BE-F197D1215F452307DFF7-0A6E-4359-B724-3D9424AE691A53FD2B1F-C2A3-4917-8891-D8BD316F8C73767B9859-819F-4E1F-A47C-B84BE742E43A32C8CD29-3945-4784-871E-D25035325F79*F8546D3A-14B2-4606-BA7D-8D7555D4A2DB

Beach Boxes-Setting the Tone

 

Im currently doing a portfolio course and one of the assignments is to set the tone for a portfolio.

I took these photos recently in hopes to have a unified series of photos of Beachboxes.

I had spotted these Beachboxes over the months and  had been waiting for an overcast flat Sky to unify them togeather.  Although the last 2photos have a more colourful colour pallette I think the green grass ties them altogether.

Enjoy

clover15

I specifically asked the gardener to not mow this section of clover as I wanted to so some creating . It didn’t turned out how i had envisioned so did some more macro.

I’m Back

Hi everyone it’s been such a long time since I’ve been on WordPress. Life’s busy you know how it is.201902161550306431031

I’ve decided to update my site beginning with a domain which has been funded by selling one of my of my Fine Art Prints -Boat in Fog at Red Hills Art Show. It’s from a series of prints of Fog.

This one was taken on a foggy afternoon in 2014. I love the minimal effect the fog creates on the landscape isolating the boat and also the tiny little figure of a sup boarder in the distance.

If your interested on purchasing a print please get in contact so we can discuss your requirements.aalittleboatcrop-1

The layout of the site will stay the same and I’ll primarily use the site as my portfolio. I also like participating with photography challenges and hope to do a photo a day for the month of June.

If you know of any photography challenges on here worth getting involved in please let me know and also any feedback on improvments I could make to my site would be good. I’d like to add an instagram icon link anybody know how to do that?

All the best

Zoé

 

 

 

Bridgewater Bay

imageThis Weeks photo of the Week from my 366 Project is another Landscape shot at Low Tide on Thursday night at the beautiful Bridgewater Bay on the Mornington Peninsula.

I’ve only been taking photos of Landscapes in the last year as I’ve been inspired by other photographers photos of my local area which is a Landscape Photographers Dream. That and also because my kids are getting older and don’t want to be in my photos anymore and bribing them is becoming too expensive.

 

 

Photo of the Week.

This Weeks Photo of the Week from my 366 Project is A Landscape at St Paul’s Beach, Sorrento, that I took on Tuesday.  I’ve attempted this shot a few times though have always got deep shadows of the rocks and no detail. This time i did a bit of study of my camera manual and either by fluke or technique I got what I was after.
