Film & Video

Last nights post was about photography, specifically still photography. Tonight, I like to write about moving pictures.
Very briefly, I’m going to return to the 1970s. If you thought still photography was expensive, then 50ft of super 8 giving about three minutes of moving pictures cost I reckon about £5 that is I admit a bit of a guess, but that did include processing (it was the same with 24 or 36 Kodachrome slides).
I had a super 8 camera, it was silent that is no sound. I did flirt briefly with a sound setup but that was even more expensive, and if you wanted to do anything with the sound track, well… to be honest that was beyond me.
Back to the digital age, why am I persisting with this? Again all of my efforts were, shall we say (and this is being kind) not very artistic. I just feel the need to do it.
Will you see me on a YouTube channel? It’s quite probable. Will you want to watch it? That’s debatable. It’s a bit like this blog really. I’m doing because I want to. I acknowledge that’s probably the entirely wrong reason.
Pictures of the seafront at Brighton. The chandelier? It appeared as I was taking pictures through a window. It’s a bit wired and I like it.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
