Flooding resulting from severe storms in Mechanicville, New York on May 1, 2017
Creating content is more than a process, it's a way of life. When speaking with other photographers and filmmakers, I find a common theme in the way we all view the world. As content creators, we define what we see in imaginary composition frames until we can actually record what we see in a beautiful and meaningful way. I try to shoot everyday and the lines between still images and video are often blurred.
Video Field Notes are clips from the process, a way of recording a location or a feeling in an informal way. They are my notebook as a filmmaker.
This scene was captured last night at the Tomhannock Reservoir in Valley Falls, New York. The afternoon was cold and windy on the shore, but back through the trees, the wind was all but gone and the sunshine was more than inviting after a gray winter. I don't tend to like Spring much, it's a stop over that is somewhere in-between two of my favorite seasons. And while most see new life, I can't wait for the deep greens of summer.
