Video Montage: Reccy

For our second group project, me and Hollie went out to gather some shots from around Leeds for our video project. We took a small HD Cam and aimed to capture the hustle and bustle of the city, along with unnoticed beauty if possible (flowers, architecture). We thought this theme would capture the idea of nature and beauty being overlooked as a result of busy chaotic city life. The natural lighting conditions were hard, we found, as they changed constantly. Elements such as varying light conditions in different buildings and even the sun disappearing into the clouds affected our shots. We constantly tried to adjust the focus and exposure, but still shooting proved difficult. We tried to achieve shaky point of view shots, emphasizing the chaos, but this often made it difficult to control the framing of our shots. Because of this, the clips may need more post. Here is an example of some of the shots we filmed within Leeds:
