Frequency in blogging have gone down by 100 percent, I am very sorry. From my Google Analytics-statistics I can see that I have lost a lot of followers the past three months because of this. I am not sure if I am capable to continue the frequency of new posts as I did before Christmas. Why? Well, I’ve got a job at an advertising agency, Centerteam Reklamebyrå A/S as a photographer assistant and I haven’t really found time to write about ongoing private projects, but fear not, I am doing a lot of fashion photography in addition to products and editorial stuff I do at work.
In February I covered Oslo Fashion Week (A/W 2012) for Runway Passport doing both runway / catwalk and backstage documentary. My campaign for Dronning Mauds Minne Høgskole have been running at both cinemas in Trondheim and billboards around town.
So, what is this youtube/vimeo-video about? Since it was Easter and I had some time off to do private projects, Charite Viken, who I did a music video for in January, and I brought some camera equipment on location and did this little piece mainly just for fun and experimentation shooting moving pictures with a DSLR.
Roomer has it that moving pictures are the thing of the future and I will not be stuck in the past. I like working with new technology and I will not be left behind. I am trying to find my style and find out how the technology works and how I will get the best results that I am looking for. I have received a lot of criticism that both this and my last video with Charite lacked of storytelling and I must agree. There is this third dimension, time, that is more prominent in motion photography than in still pictures and each clip as a in pictures need to tell a story. The discussion for me is more about me to take my criticism and do something with it, or continue as a mere photograph and film pretty and interesting clips based more on composition and detail. My trend is pointing in the direction that I want to do just that, planning the small clips instead of putting together a coherent story and instead let the sound and finish the connecting link.
Regarding the soundtracks for the movies I produce, I can see that there is a violation of copyright law to pick pieces of music artists and bands to use in my videos. I’m just as unhappy when someone tampers with the images I shoot. I can only apologize to all those I have stolen music from and going to steal music, but the reason is that you make so damn good music and it that helps me to set the mood for my moving photos . I have done and will always put the band and artist that plays the sound and the song is taken from.
Enjoy my little moving picture with Charite Viken as main actress and model. If you like the tune, listen to the full length at Spotify.
