As some of you may have picked up from earlier posts or comments in my other life I’ve been dragging myself through a 3d animation course for the past 2 years, and having just come out of it on the other side, Spyros wondered how animation, another arts/ creativity subject, could help and influence a street photographers work..
There is of course the immediate difference between moving images and still, but in animation each and every frame, each still will have been worked rigorously to be part of the overall moment and ensure the realistic presentation of a character or something moving. I mean every frame and each controller has been pushed tweaked , forced to comply with the terribly stringent rules of animation. Animation is endlessly time consuming, and even when it’s done…gah! I could have done more.
