Artist Research & Inspiration - Fast Shutter Speeds (The Slow Mo Guys)

  1. 1. ARTIST RESEARCH & INSPIRATION. Kate Burton. Fast Shutter Speeds.
  2. 2. The entire slow motion part of this video was filmed on a Phantom Flex (V1610) camera at fifteen thousand frames per second. This is 600 times slower than is seen at regular human sight. The video was available to be viewed at 720p, when set to HD. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H93n-k3SkiQ THE SLOW MO GUYS: I think the artist evokes a sense of energy, yet delicacy through the use of such variety in the colour and brightness of this work. The bold use of colour in this photograph creates an overwhelming experience of freedom. I am drawn to the artist’s use of shape created by the paint at that second, which also helps to capture a sense of freedom. The inclusion of the sparks inside the paint suggests to me a feeling of juxtaposition through the destruction it creates and the tranquillity that it portrays. I love the way the artist uses the fire and sparks to enhance the dimensions the paint has created in this explosion. The bright colours remind me of the feelings of brilliance within calm.
  3. 3. For this video it was filmed with a Phantom Flex, hand held – set at 2500 fps. THE SLOW MO GUYS: I chose to look at this specific photograph because it inspires me to take bigger step in creating an effective piece of work. I feel the main message being sent across here is how remarkable something can look if seen from a distance at the right time. The artist set out with intentions of doing something dangerous, yet with the ability of slowing it down to see every change the fire is shown in a unique way. The composition of this work is effective in the fact that to the right one the artists can be seen wearing protective face gear as they throw the fire, reminding us of how dangerous it actually is, but the fire takes the centre and the attention of the photograph as it is sprawled through the air. It is mentioned that the saturation had been taken down extremely in this video to allow the fire to be seen in great detail. But doing this also had the effect of shadowing everything else in comparison to the fire. Because of this the colour and boldness of the fire creates a sense of heat and chaos that juxtaposes the atmosphere beautifully.
  4. 4. It was set to be exposed as the flames were brighter than the sky on he day of filming.

  7. 7. This video was shot at 500fps, and lasted 2 minutes when, in reality, it only took 0.6 seconds in total to record. The entire thing is shown 200 times slower than real time. THE SLOW MO GUYS: In this video a drop of one coloured paint falls into another coloured of paint and they are captured at high speed through a macro lens to create this photograph. Part of what influenced me to study this work is that it captures something so small and average and shows it to us in a way that we could never have seen for ourselves; allowing it to explore ideas of ignorance. The background is plain black , allowing all the attention of the photo to be kept on the paint in the centre of the screen. The colours are very exaggerated because of how close up the picture was captured; the fact that it can actually be seen as the blue mixes into the pink evokes an atmosphere of both hot and cold in a complimentary way. Because it is something so small, by capturing it directly on the feelings of boldness are portrayed even stronger that how it would have been if the picture was taken from a high angle, as these sorts of things are usually viewed everyday.

  9. 9. Filmed at 1600 fps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCERs0v1OoI THE SLOW MO GUYS: This image was created by placing a tuning fork into a glass of water whilst it was vibrating. I think the artist evokes a feeling of calm and delicacy through the use of the water droplets against the green, out of focus background. The bright use of shape in this photo creates an overwhelming experience fragility, as we know it will only last a second. I am struck by the artist’s use of light against each individual drop of water, which helps to capture the sense of freedom that seems to be displayed in this split second. The inclusion of the green coloured background instead of the usual black suggests to be a sense of nature, allowing the water to seem more tranquil than if against black. I love the way the artist uses average materials to emphasis how anything can appear fascinating if captured at the right moment.
  10. 10. Shot at 2500 fps with a Phantom Flex camera. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NS1umhAAeg THE SLOW MO GUYS: I think the artist creates an experience of vulnerability yet beautiful chaos in this image through the use of everyday objects applied in a way that is against convention. The bold use of colours creates an overwhelming feeling of destruction. I am drawn to the artists use of lines and shape the fire can be seen to follow the tennis ball. It really helps to capture the feelings of danger and heat. The inclusion of the droplets that can be seen sprayed across the air in the centre of the photograph suggests to me a sense of delicacy within the whole of the picture. This contradicts itself in a way that make the split second of which this image was captured seem slightly surreal. I love the way the artist again uses average materials seem extremely fascinating through the applied techniques, allowing the whole of the image to be emphasised.
