Experiment: Moving Portraits

(You have to click the pictures to see them in motion)

Concept: Creating a static photo of a person with a natural moving background.

Jake and I went down to picknick point beach to shoot photos.


Frozien Jump with Waves

Learned: The frame rate needs to be higher to make the water look more natural. The disconnect from the ground without a shadow creates to much separation from the subject.

Learned: Same problem with separation.


Croutched with waves behind
Trying to clean it up a little

Learned: Grounded subject helped keep motion and still tied together.

Changes for next round. More frames per second, working on tying everything together.
