One thing I have been doing everyday this past week is checking the clouds. Every night I checked the weather on my phone, and every morning I stuck my head out of the window to look at the sky. I don’t think I have ever cared about clouds this much before in my life. But now I am like a weatherman because the weather is such an important component of my project. Unfortunately, most days have been either cloudless or too cloudy. Just as I thought I couldn’t get anything good this week, Friday surprised me with thin scattered pink clouds. This time I wore enough clothes and even brought a book with me to read. Below are the first and last photo of the sequence. (I wanted to upload the edited video but WordPress won’t allow me. ): )
(Also I have decided not to share every single sequence I shoot because then there will be no surprise in the final video.)
I also communicated with my mentor this week and discussed some ideas. Besides sceneries, I’m also thinking about doing some time-lapse indoor, such as in the main hall hallway or the dining room, to capture the movements of people. I was watching some time-lapse videos on YouTube and found one similar to what I want to do.
I think it would be interesting to do time-lapse at some big events or locations where there are a lot of people, such as fall fest (of which I shot a sequence), assemblies in the gym, sports games, the dining room, and the theater. I want to show people that the beauty of Westtown consists of not only the 600-acre campus but also of the students and faculty here. Hopefully I can show you a sequence of the dining room in my next blog.
Until next week,
