Today’s suggestion was to explore the patterns and colors in nature. Since most of the day was filled with glorious rain showers (MUCH appreciated and needed in the Austin area!), I decided to explore the colors, shapes, and distortions found in a rain puddle. By slowing down the film and reversing the captured film, I was able to study the transformation that took place as I dropped various leaves into the puddle. Overall I thought the resulting film was a nice first attempt at filming water–though issues of filming reflective surfaces and lighting will have to be further explored in future films!
Here is the resulting film:
And for a bonus, here is another film I put together–exploring the same sort of concept as yesterday’s second video, but in a slightly different way:
For tomorrow’s challenge, I will take to the skies–focusing on the sky as my main subject. As with today’s suggestions, I will leave this up to your creative interpretation. You might film a bird in flight, trees in motion, the changes in the sky over a period of time, or perhaps something else entirely that in some way grabs your attention!
‘Til tomorrow…happy explorations! 🙂
