So Im finally back at the studio after an involuntary long weekend of illness. I’m glad to say I’m feeling much better this Wednesday morning.

Photography has always fascinated me. I’m that person with a hundred photos of every event, trip etc and while I don’t consider myself a photographer by any means, I nevertheless can appreciate some good photography (or at least what I find interesting). There’s a lot of great photographers that collaborate with derooted, and Simon’s imminent involvement with CONTACT has loosely inspired my post today. Its more inspired by the concept of non-traditional photography and showcasing it using new mediums. Stop Motion animation is certainly nothing new. However, what was once rather limited for the guy/girl at home has become far more accessible. All u need is a decent camera, a huge SD card, a great idea, some degree of computer skills are a plus but not necessary, and in most cases A LOT OF TIME ON YOUR HANDS! Check out some personal favorites…

Probably my favorite stop motion video ever! The hours and planning that must have went into this are mind boggling..

PES rules..nuff said

Shot using a technology called “tilt-shift” , creates the illusion that everything is in miniature. Pretty dope!

T shirt goodness…

Good friends Ashley and JJ’s afternoon of stop motion fun…
