Animals in Motion – Exercise 3.3 – Sequence

Brief:- Make a sequence using either your own photographs or images from the internet or from charity shops, i.e. found images. It doesn’t really matter whether you’re the person who took the photograph because here you’re appropriating and re-contextualising it within a sequence of other photographs. A good place to start would be your archive of photographs. Look for connectivity between images. Experiment by placing images together either in Photoshop or as prints. Notice how one image resonates with another image and how the two combine to produce a new meaning.If your sequence would work better as a slideshow, use PowerPoint or download Open Office to create one.

I have made a series of photo-videos for this part of the exercise, and have tried to emulate the style of Eadweard Muybridge by capturing animals in motion. I made use of my bridge camera, and I am aware of the lack of quality within these. I will need to take my Nikon and the Tamron 18-270 lens to ensure better quality and some proximity to the birds. The high-speed continuous motion was effective though, but again it had its drawbacks, well at least I did. I could have set the camera to record 20 shots rather than 10, and using a tripod would help.
