It seems that nearly every photographer is at least dabbling with creating motion imagery, and they often ask the same questions. Richard Harrington has produced (yet again) an essential resource for this group. Still to Motion is written for the still photographer moving into this new discipline, and explores a unbelievably large number of topics. You’ll get a perspective on storytelling and project approach, camera, lighting, support and computer equipment, and so much more.
The book tracks several different projects, and helps to illuminate the different approaches needed between a music video and a documentary. The book included a DVD with finished examples of the case studies that the book tracks, and includes a lot of demo and project files for you to pluy with.
If you are a still photographer even considering working with motion, you will find this to be an essential resource. Buy it at Amazon.
As a bonus, the subject of the documentary and music video is Luke Brindley, one of our favorite up-and-coming singer songwriters in the DC area.
