Stop Motion Photography

Stop motion photography (also called "stop go photography" and "stop action photography") is a very interesting art. It is an art which requires much patience and some level of skill. It is the act of taking photographs of something and placing the photographs together to mimic movement. It is one of my favorite arts.

My History

I love stop motion photography. I started as a child with a webcam and a Windows XP computer. I used Windows Movie Maker to put the photos next to one another. I made a number of movies, and I still have some of them today. I used, and still use, legos in a number of my movies. I have been playing with this art style on and off for well over 10 years now.

Advantages To Stop Motion Photography

Since real objects can be used, there are some benefits. Stop motion photography can be used with scenes that look fairly realistic. Star Wars incorporated this style in the early films. It also does not require too much fancy software. One simply needs a camera and a tool to make a movie out of individual photographs. Famous films have been using this art for many years, and hopefully people will be using it for years to come.

      I've played with stop motion a bit too. But I did it way back in the day when we used little 8mm cameras; you pushed a button that changed the camera to stop motion and then took pictures that turned into animation when viewed on a projector, more or less. I did it with drawings, so cartoons basically. I had a friend and we made movies, some of them included these little animations. You're right, it's fun.
