A small group of snow photographs, set to music, in a short and lovely video by Cindy Millikin.
Cindy has been a friend, and off and on student of mine, for many years now. She recently sent me this short video of some of her photos taken on the West Fork Trail in Sedona, Arizona on December 12, 2009.
I find it pleasing and wanted to share it with any who might like it.
If the above video won’t show for you, here is the direct link -“Snow”
It is a challenge, I think, for photographers who are shooting naturally occurring complexity, to decide how to compose; where to put the frame edges. I like what Cindy did with these. It reminds me of a ‘small format’ version of what Eliot Porter worked on throughout his life.
Cindy sent me the following tech info:
“All photographs in the “Snow” video were taken on Saturday, December 12, 2009 in Oak Creek Canyon, AZ using a Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera (14.7 megapixels).”
Exposure 4f to 4.25f, with 1/100-to 1/500 speed
“The software used to make the video is Keynote for Mac, which can be converted to Quicktime. It can also be uploaded directly from Keynote to U Tube. I also used Photoshop for image editing, though I didn’t need to do too much.”
About the music she wrote:
“Everything was silent on that day, and the landscape had a surreal quality. I attempted to capture the mood with the choice of images combined with the slow meter of the “Frost Waltz” by Keven MacLeod, and the gradual fading in and out transitions.”
PhotographyUncapped hopes you like it. Enjoy.
Guess what’s next?
