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.

A Photo a Week: Dusk

I took these last Friday. I had been wanting to capture the full moon at dusk for a while though I think the crescent moon is far more mesmerising . There’s something pretty spectacular about brightly lit objects at dusk .

 

 

The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”

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.

Photo of the Week

imageLast weeks most popular photo from my 366 Project on my Instagram account is this Seascape at St Andrews Beach on the Mornington Peninsula. I have taken a few photos at this Beach for my project and although this Beach doesn’t offer a lot in great rock features that a lot of the other local Ocean Beaches do, it’s easy access is great for last minute Sunset Pics like this.

There’s a Chair over There

imageMy most popular photo this week on my Instagram profile is this photo I took of a Chair at Sunset at the beach at Low tide. This Chair has featured in a few photos and I have decided to make a new series of photographs “There’s a Chair over there” featuring this chair in different Landscapes.

I have still continued with my 366 project though if you have noticed I haven’t been very active on WordPress. That will hopefully change as I will be beginning/continuing another 366 project next year and also sharing  A photography assignment I am working on.

 

Landscape Challenge

Instead of doing my regular Photo of the week this week I’m participating in CCY Photo  #21 Landscape Challenge.  Most of the photos are composed using the rule of thirds I challenged myself by including an element in the foreground something I don’t usually do. The photo below was the most popular photo this week , which ones your favourite I’d love to know. ?imageimageimageimageimageimage
