Playing with HighSpeed Cameras
For a project at West Yorkshire Playhouse - I got a chance to play with a high speed camera to shoot some insert visuals for a Bollywood Dance Show. Here's a montage of 4 of them... I shot about 12 variations of dance and movement. The High speed camera, is interesting in showing the hidden movement within a dance ( particularly muscle movement and eye/body co-ordination) , and will be explored further. The camera used was a MotionPro x3 - with most of this footage shot between 500 and 1000fps. A lot of light was required- next time need to do this on a nice day outside. Performer was Emma Birch.
While I was getting used to the camera, I used the opportunity to shoot some test footage with SGAction team, which made for some awesome images.
