Awesome. Thank you yellodog!
I'm not saying that it's easy, but I know that it is possible for anybody to learn doing a montage like this ( except for the beauty of the images and idea - that's up to each individual).
At the photo club I go to, they give free lessons how to do these "photo essays"...Many people of the club learned how to do their essays but I always said No, ...maybe now I will reconsider the offer
But you can apply the same method to filming with a photocamera or combine both still image and movie. And they teach how to synchronize the images to the music ( as it's not the other way around).
I saw in one photo essay - after many still images - it was one of a tree in the Fall, shot upwards, and then unexpectedly leaves started to fall towards the viewer but nothing moved, the picture stayed the same. It was hallucinatory.
I liked the idea of showing pictures and then suddenly something moves trough them...You can do that with only pictures, simulating a movie with many pictures taken rapidly at once ..
There are many methods...it just needs imagination.
...Ah, and willingness to learn ( note for me for 2011;)
