 "Frame Of Mind" is a small side project I’ve been working on for the past several months incorporating people I respect and who inspire me to create. By no means am I attempting to be an interviewer or a filmmaker , It's tough though, cause at times i feel like another one of those random people who picks up a DSLR and starts shooting video, having never learned how to photograph with it first. I am a street photographer plain & simple and as the compact HD video revolution continues, i struggle with whether or not i have the right to do video without proper understanding of what most people with these cameras ignore. Codecs, perceptual compression,transcoding, layering, inverse telecine, audio levs ect.....so, please focus on the peoples words and thoughts and not the video/audio work, the idea was to help the viewers and myself learn a bit more about the people, which might not have been possible with a still image.
Knowing how to capture, edit, and post process HD video is very valuable these days but, i have always felt that the still image reigns supreme and holds more value than any frames per second could.

 

I'll be launching Vol.1 Part.1 this Friday, featuring Jenni Tay, and while shooting for Vol.2 (may-june) i will release  Amanda's,Trevor's,Eric's & Leo's.

stay tuned
