Day 7 of 365 – “The odes”

Today’s pic I was going for something a bit different. My nephew Trav has been working on a video for his class’ award ceremony. I wanted to figure out how to capture it in a photograph. Capturing video in a photo is pretty much impossible considering one is a moving subject and the other is a still. If you just take a photo of the video you’re basically just taking a photo of a photo. Where’s the fun in that?

That’s when I remembered the work of this photographer.

The only problem is a) I wasn’t in a fancy antique theatre, I was in a (pretty rad for a) high school theatre and b) I have no idea what I’m doing.

So my ode to Travis’ talent and ode to a great photographer turned out like this…

I’m going to start including my settings so that if there are any photographers out there that know what they’re doing and want to give me tips on how to improve, they’ll know what I started at.
