2016—A Muybridge Moment
My panning practice Sunday resulted in what my nephew calls a “Muybridge” moment. He pointed out that the formation of greater white-fronted geese in yesterday’s blog post displayed just about every wing position that they have. Eadweard Muybridge was a 19th century photographer whose pioneering work showing motion in humans and animals in a succession of photographs, lead to the creation of motion picture projection. A little Photoshop magic (my nephew Michael is an accomplished Photoshop user and a student of fine art) shows an edited photograph with an orderly progression of wing positions.
