Ah, again I arrive at the blog with a knot in my stomach. I'm taking a deep breath and going for it! Enjoy!
This week I played with one phrase that I started to develop last week. I added on and experimented with looking at the camera. I really enjoy the "one take" riskiness of this phrase, as well as the quick spins and swings that feel like a roller coaster when I watch them. There are two attempts at the phrase, and at the end of the video I filmed myself doing the phrase without the camera.
This phrase feels "playful" and makes me want to shoot this on a grassy field on a beautiful day - which is probably playing into a lot of stereotypes about what it is I'm doing. Looking at the camera just amplifies that stereotype, and I'm unsure how I will play into that, or not.
I'm not so into the movement phrase without the camera because it seems all about he hands (since I am usually holding the camera in my hands). This gets me thinking about how ELSE to hold the camera (body parts, other support devices, etc.). I will probably put this "phrase without the camera" on my shot list regardless, in case I want to cut it into the piece at some point.
