This Photo 101 assignment — “Moment & Motion” — instructed us to capture a small moment that is part of a big event. Either the camera, or something in the frame, should be in motion.
The photo above shows three graduate students at Syracuse University working on a stop-action video project.
The final video will be about 2 minutes long, but each second required 24 separate still photographs. The math alone is daunting (120 seconds x 24 shots = 2,884 photos). It is a labor-intensive task, to say the least, and it kept these students up until the wee hours just about every night for a week — during spring break.
