I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love the ideas people come up with in isolation. Video director Valentina Vee is staying at home with her roommate Elizabeth, who recently had her birthday. Since they can’t throw a party, they threw the next best thing – a photo shoot. Valentina shot an epic “quarantine birthday” portrait of Elizabeth and turned it into a cinemagraph. She also shared a BTS video, and it looks like they had tons of fun. You can take a peek at how they created it, and also learn how to do it yourself.
Ok, so, we’re in the latter half of September. I think that means it’s ok to start talking about Halloween now. Christmas is still definitely off-limits, but Halloween? Yeah, I think we’re good. And you know what that means. Spooky photoshoots!
This video from the folks at Aputure goes over how to create suspense in your film with lighting. But the tricks and principles contained within it apply just as equally to shooting photos, too.
