Slideshow with Street Sounds: Times Square, Winter 2015
This is a slide show in video format. The sounds were recorded at Times Square on Friday, March 20, 2015. The images are from February and March… during a record-breaking cold winter here in NYC. This is my first experience as a “sound engineer”! Subject-wise this is a continuation of my “people walking” theme.
The images were shot with me moving towards my subject as they move towards me. Technically that is a bit tricky. I shoot with most automatic features turned off (to make the camera maximally responsive), and I pre-focus the camera. I shoot too fast to really compose or to know what I’m getting; I have auto review turned off. So I’m carrying over the chance and surprise aspects of my Holga work to my newer digital way of working.
The video is 2 minutes long. I hope you enjoy it.
