Sometimes the right combination of moving pictures set to music can really do wonders. Occasionally, when watching a movie I can get a sense of a connected study of life. When the art of film is focused on this angle of 'the observer' observing us it can be quite inspiring.
Films like the one below do a great job of telling the tales of our lives because the storytelling craft allows us to pause and reflect on our feelings about ourselves and of those around us.
Sam O'Hare has assembled a vision of timeless grace using what we would often consider to be bland subjects of everyday life. The true artist doesn't need anything more than what we see and respond to every day - it's the assembly that counts.
For visual effect O'Hare use a process called tilt-shifting. Tilt-shift photography delivers a time lapse style while creating a 'miniaturizing' effect. Beyond that, my two classes of photography at college aren't going to do much to help me explain this process on a technical level.
Beauty is as in the eye of the creator before the beholder.
