    so I have a series I want to do and I'm having a hard time with one shot. I'm looking to do a shot that would imply continous running. The only thing I've been able to come put with is a longer exposure of someone running..... for some reason this one is really stumping me.

    anyone have any ideas?
     
  2. Not sure what you mean.

    But I was thinking about a long straight road with a shot from behind the person starting their journey. Is that what you're talking abou?

    How about one of those shots near road level. Try to find one of those loopy roads where all you see are a series of humps, with the road rising in each. Have someone run all the way down the road, and take shots at different intervals. Then merge the shots to show the same person running on each section of the road.

    The road would be something like this, but shot from further back to incorporate the background: http://slimg.com/photos/car/Car-HillyRoad.jpg

    Or maybe a shot of someone in jogging apparel passing a state line sign.

    I thought of something like that, but I don't want to to look like it's just a person out on a casual jog.

    I don't want you to steal it.:mamoru:

    haha, j/k. it's basically a series around the 7 deadly sins.... but with a spin. Not only do I want to show representation of the sins, but also the description of Dante's trip up the 7 terraces of purgatory to cleanse his soul.

    The 4th terrace is Sloth.... by continually running those who were slothful in life can only purge this sin by being zealous in their desire for penance.

    Sure you don't want to represent the 7 deadly sins in 6 pictures? :mamoru:

    Isn't there a sin for having your husband dress up like a cheerleader, have sex with you, and then post it on the internet?

    get someone to run on a long straight road, and find the most worn out, battered clothes & shoes you can.

    truly destroyed running shoes, and a disheveled person might imply the amount of time running pretty well.

    I can assume you are doing it with film, no? multiple exposure would be pretty easy.

    Someone in anguish, handcuffed/shackled to a treadmill.
     

  23. yeah that's what i've been thinking.

    If you really want to make it more oustanding get a skinny old man with a long beard to be in these dischevled old jogging clothes and take a picture of him attempting to run. :bowdown:
     
  24. oh snap yea I was thinking about fat man running also :o
