This is part of the Lumiere videoblogging challenge. Part of the spirit of the challenge is to avoid setting up a shot or series of video images according to a pre-defined plan, and letting the world speak to you by capturing moments as they happen.
The rules: * 60 seconds max * Fixed camera * No audio * No zoom * No edit * No effects
For more information see: http://videoblogging.info/lumiere/ Of course, in a sense I edited this piece, in terms of how I edited what I saw. When I first took the footage, I noticed a distracting reflection of the window curtain in the image, so I re-positioned the shot again without the curtain reflection figuring as severely as it had in the first take. I did not edit what was in the camera, but I edited what I “saw” by manipulating the environment of the shot. One could argue that I only “saw” the curtain because I was looking at how the shot was coming across for the Lumiere. When you do Lumieres, how much do you “edit” the environment?
