Trip the Light Fantastic

First off, who knew that it had such a prestigious history? Certainly not I!

Anyway, as you may envision, and if you recall, I said I was doing some experimentation with motion. Well, while I was at it, I did some experimentation with light painting. I'll leave it to you to determine exactly how I did these, or you know, you can just "oooo" and "ahhh" if you are so inclined.

If you haven't noticed by now, I like pictures, still, moving, or otherwise and I recently had the opportunity to attend an advance screening of a little film Beginners down at the Denver Film Center. I cannot praise this film enough, it is AMAZING, as the label for this post implies and the director Mike Mills is equally amazing. He was such a warm and welcoming individual and very passionate about this film, which takes quite a bit from his own life. He's the one on the left in the green, which will also make him easier to spot in the second picture.

And, I imagine you are asking yourself why I like using the Lensbaby so much when I shoot at the film center. I just think its fun, and honestly it works fantastically in low light situations. I've actually gotten so accustomed to shooting in low light with the Lensbaby that I need to go and practice with it in bright conditions. Go figure.

In any case, you need to go and see Beginners. It will drop 3rd June this summer and you will not regret it.

In Constant Motion

With any luck you will not consider my absence a time of no photography, but more of a time of no blogging. In any case, among the many things that have kept me going is some experimentation with motion. I'll let you know how the results "turn" out.

Check that out. It's comical!
