LIGHTS, CAMERA AND ... ACTION! I am rather nostalgic when I explore the origins of sound and film. Without them we would not be where we are today in the Digital World.
Here is my film short of the 2017 Dublin City Marathon. I aimed to capture the spirit of this public event with a personal project which engages the community year after year in all weathers. This year we were blessed with the best day ever.I created a widescreen aspect ratio (16:9) as a dedication to all the athletes and supporters who came together on October 29th 2017. The random shots originally taken on a digital camera, were edited in a software programme called "Movie Maker". I enjoy this process - it's a great way to treasure memories.
In there, I matched it to a musical score. Gone are the days of Silent Movies and negatives on the floor.
This copyrighted video uses a tint deliberately to focus our attention on many emotions of these athletes. The Source for the Block Quote is: https://www.bypeople.com/photographers-rights-and-release-forms/#P.
The "Photoshop" film strip effect modifies original images - I added effects to make unrecognizable facial features as well as jersey numbers indistinguishable. Also did this for the public screenshot.
You can photograph anybody who's in public view and doing anything not considered private. People on sidewalks, parks, beaches and other public spaces are considered a subject of legal photography.
