After two largely technical exercises, this week brings something a little different: matching poetry to video images, trying to enhance both, while using a soundtrack that works for both mood and pace.
At the same time, I’m continuing to experiment with various effects: in this one, primarily cropping and blending (in which one video overlays another in some fashion).
Loved your selection of poetry. Some of them I knew, some were new to me. Thank you.
The best video clip, for reasons that I won’t attempt to fathom, was the one with the reflection of a heron stalking upside down across the top of the frame — made me pay attention!
Jim T – Thanks! That reflection is a black-necked stilt – a lovely bird.
You are getting goooood at this!
Barbara – 🙂
This is downright beautiful, Isabel! Thanks for sharing it. And, as a bonus, I learned that the title of W.O. Mitchell’s book “Who Has Seen the Wind” comes from a poem by Christina Rossetti!
Ian – Thanks!
Love the dragonfly, he’s smiling – did you notice? Also, I agree, you’re very talented, and I’m impressed that you can match poetry to photos – makes me wonder which comes first?
Just catching up on your blog – always a good Sunday morning activity.
Alison – Glad you like it. My challenge for this week (the New York trip) turned out to be more challenging (or at least more time consuming) than I expected, so it won’t emerge until next week. As for the poetry matching, the photos came first, then I looked for poetry and quotations. It might be fun to try it the other way around . . .
