Cinemascope - A Story In Stills
With a strong background in film, and cinema, I have always had a passion for aesthetics, the look and feel of an image, and the way colours, light, shapes, shadows and technique can shape how we feel when we view an image.
In this blog I would like to just get some ideas out on paper for a project that I intend to work on this year.
The project will be the story of London, over one day, using stills photography, presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, as with the below image.
"The Rising Stars"
The images need to tell a story arc, and will in theory have one main character, a girl, on a journey through the city.
Colour and intrique will play a major part in the images:
This will, without doubt, be a challenging project, but one I am relishing in getting stuck into. I have a feeling the story will unfold as I shoot, but there are underlying themes that I want to try and get across to the viewer.
Stay tuned for updates on this project ! Thoughts, ideas and critiscm all appreciated !
