Talk about getting inspired!! I just watched an amazing video on how Time Magazine plans on engaging its modern day audience with new technological capabilities available with the ipad, and soon all tablet reading devices. If you want to know where this interactive, media savvy society is going you should check out this video and article.
I am not only inspired as a soon to be avid tablet user (heck, I have been watching the news, movies and television on my computer for a few years now..so I am ready), but I am also excited as a photographer. Times are changing faster than we can imagine or grasp. We don’t need to hold our ground or make a choice. What we need to do is begin to realize that technology is providing us with more tools than we have ever had before to express ourselves as we see fit.
Come on, how many times have you found yourself in an extraordinary setting where you wanted to capture the moment, but the moment was moving and a still image just didn’t do it justice? How do you think your imaging trends will change if you invite video into your toolkit just as in the past you invited a new lens? I can almost promise you that your still photography will change and strengthen as will the ways you engage with your world.
We embrace change here at RMSP. We absolutely love the effect that a photograph can have on people. Still photography is and will always be one of the most dynamic ways to document/interpret the world around us. But we are open to exploration too. We have already incorporated video instruction into our Advanced Intensive course in our Career Training Program. And soon you will see it offered in our other programs as well. There is a lot to show you and we look forward to seeing how you see.
Check out how two of our employees have incorporated video into their photography world.
