I have been busy busy busy considering adding video to what I do. I have several virtual shopping carts of gear all filled up and I am just waiting on a few things.
In the mean time I am working on an intro (above) and my East Coast videos (below).
What I am looking for from you lovely people is a bit of support, some feedback and encouragement. The videos I hope to create after I am done with all 4 cities will be far different from what you see here. After all videos are just moving pictures and I tend to do those well.
So I decided to have a little me time and attend one of the biggest photography shows on this planet. If you are not so interested in anything but images I would not continue. For those who can handle it ( and have a good internet speed ) please click and continue!
A strange title, yes but I hope you dont feel that way after you see some of the screens from the music videos. I of course like the new Jay-Z albums quite a bit but you dont have to. For example, I was watching the videos muted while listening to to Slipknot. Whatever gets the job done.
I have not had / really watched “cable tv” in about 3 years now so I rarely see music videos. I am sure there are quite a few inspirational ones but today I will be writing about two of Jay-Z’s latest videos:
These images are dark but also have perfect lighting. The videos are very fluid with a lot of energy. I am crazy about the backlighting that is done with the fire / artificial lighting. The scenes in the warehouse in D.O.A. to the Kanye rapping through the cracked windshield of the car, I find both videos entirely cinematic and beautiful. I am not quite sure in few words what makes these videos so inspirational, maybe the Versace glasses? I think you will see this style of images in future images of mine… maybe sooner than you think. Until then…
