Experiments in Astrocinematography
R&D in astrocinematography of the the southern skies, using various motion-control camera systems we’ve developed.
Environmental cinematography (landscape, skyscape, seascape, celestial) and immersive imaging in remote (and often difficult) places creates specific challenges in developing hardware and software platforms to capture and create immersive content – that can be reprocessed and manipulated via computational cinematic and photographic methodologies, in interesting new ways.
I’ll post some intermittent experiments here as we go along. The first few will be quite basic, but we’ve lots of ideas.
A view over Bruny Island, Tasmania. A first experiment in shooting the night sky – lots to figure out with ISO/Aperture/Exposure settings – but it turned out reasonably well. More to come. Best viewed in HD on fullscreen mode.
