Re: UWOL 33 - Theme

Oh boy - have to get up early!! At least we have sunset too.

Best light for filming wildlife and nature ever!

Now just to find a subject other than a sunrise or sunset!

Thanks Trond.

Re: UWOL 33 - Theme

Good one Trond. This one should give everyone something to work with. I just have to figure out what that will be.
Thanks.

Great theme Trond!

Golden hours doesn't have to mean the first and last light of the day
Anytime I'm filming in nature is a golden hour!

Re: UWOL 33 - Theme

As always the theme can be interpreted wildly.
Use your imaginations.

Re: UWOL 33 - Theme

Yep Marj, could be at anytime.

The last hours with my dog Sadie as she was dying from liver cancer were golden hours.
Doesn't mean the films have to be anything about light.

Re: UWOL 33 - Theme

The golden hour, also called the blue hour, is considered special because of the light quality at this time of day, and both the expression and the natural phenomenon it refers to, being widely used in artistic context and in popular culture. I think that although the definition has the main focus is on the twilight, the artistic aspect will give us many opportunities for different angles.
Good choice of theme and thanks for the challenge it provides.

Re: UWOL 33 - Theme

Not so sure that is one hundred percent correct Geir. My understanding is that the sun is just above the horizon in the golden hours and the sun is just below the horizon in the blue hours. You can still see the beautiful red colours of the sun during the blue hours but the sun itself is no longer visible. It probably doesn't matter for the challenge though.

Actually the two together make dawn and dusk which is a wonderful time to see daytime wildlife heading for bed and night time creatures waking up. The dawn chorus is amazing. Some animals (crepuscular animals) are mainly active at this time.

This theme has the potential for interesting stories but is also a theme that lends itself to doing a simple music video with beautiful images making the most of the magic light. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

I read you Marj. I guess we have different understanding of the concept, it will be exciting and I look forward to see the results :)

Re: UWOL 33 - Theme

Guess I am late on a reply ,

Was travelling did read the topic

Reading the topic had 2 distinct things cropping in my mind at same time
Yeeee - need to shoot the best light making everything beautiful
Oops - what can be a story ?

Just landed back home after a road trip of 2000 kms

The irony of the day topic was announced it rained 14 hours at my home town ruining any sun visibility in the golden light hours. Lucky I was not home.

Need to think of a story line if I can come up with one .
