|Nuances d’Hiver (fr) = Shades of Winter
Winter in New England - I chose a french name for this creation because I liked the sound it conveyed and its unique feeling. Tried to create a magical time, full of shades, nuances, harshness and surprises. The images span from metro Boston area and its parks, to western Massachusetts, Vermont and coastal Maine.
This video was composed from end of November through most of December. The intention and inspiration was to capture winter’s subtleties and contrast it with the striking power and images it offers to the wandering eye. As I began formulating the “feel and look” it became evident that I needed to get the help of others to conclude this work. In the process I came to “virtually” befriend nice people, who took the time to educate me on subtleties as well. Thanks to Justin Morgan for taking the time to guide me into the “nuances” of Creative Commons.
The elements used in this project are:
Photographs: Justin Morgan, Steven Erat, Werner Kunz and Leo Bar
(some HDR photographs, others have been modified in post to pseudo HDR and/or vignette). Pseudo time-lapse was done post.
Music: Oiseaux Tristes by Ravel, piano by Felipe Sarro
Hope you enjoy this little present of subtle and mighty Winter.
