Room 1103 at the Park Central, a bit less room than the hotels in Ohio, but basically the same.
I took a couple of videos (short just a few seconds long) with my Ipod , something I’ve never done before. The Carousel in Central Park, Penn Station, walking under a bridge in Central Park. I just have to figure out how to put them up on the blog.
I’ve never been interested in photography or video, but I’ve found it intriguing. I’m curious what makes a good 5 second video. It seems to be much like a still photo in composition, but of course there’s also movement and sound.
Taking a video of the carousel, my first one, I felt like the first person with a moving camera. I didn’t move the camera, I took a picture of something that moves and has music and lots of color and recognizable forms. It’s something most people have a connection to or memories of. It was a natural.
5 second video is like a moving snapshot.
