This is an unofficial video for the song “El Cartucho” by the colombian band Superlitio, directed by my dear friend Felipe Suárez.
The experiment was to use an arduino to drive the shutter of a DSLR (Canon T1i) camera for doing timelapses with the plus of connecting the arduino to a laptop, connected to a video projector and driving the framerate of a video, to synch it to the camera shutter. I made the technical direction for the video, as well as some color timing and post stuff. It ended up not being as interesting as we thought, but it’s a technique that might eventually come in handy.
Light Painting is pretty hard… i made a little processing sketch to assist me in the process of light painting… it shows in almost real time the image that is being drawn and it uses Arduino to connect with the camera… more about this coming soon.
Since blonde redhead concert, this has been my wallpaper, and i have no intentions to change it.
One of the best photos I’ve ever taken. I will never forget the moment she came in with her white Gipson SG and started playing Dr. Strangelove.
Eventually, last year I was road tripping along the East Coast in the states and abandoned computers for a while, but is I said, I’m an interdisciplinary artist and also like taking pictures. Suddenly I was at a Blonde Redhead concert, just in front of Kazu and happily took lots of pictures.
Best concert i've been in yet.
There is not any particular point for this post being in here, except for the fact of that being one of the nicest pictures I’ve ever taken and the fact of me being unable to understand why is there people who use their flash for their concert photos.
