DMA Creative Connections: Tech Lab production

This is the First Tech Lab I have attended. Our project was to create a project based on special effects, either video or still sequence. My model Rousi was inspired by the installation video of Eija-Ahtila in the Performance / Art Exhibition. As she was acting for Chuck D'Arcy who was shooting a video, I took this sequence of still images and brought them together into a Ken Burns style slide show.

Last Evening in September

I was walking across the arena and a 3yo mare was following me quite closely. I had to pick up my pace so I could get some separation and then took this photo.

The sunset this evening was spectacular with a clouds feathered by strong winds aloft.
