I have noticed that "action" does not necessarily mean we see things in motion. If we did, they would be blurry, so as photographers, we often STOP ACTION, with high camera speed settings. But the scene depicted in our stop action photograph eludes to action.
For instance, here is a photo that implies action, but the action is stopped.
So this week, I decided to become a movie director. I had an idea, and I needed a few elements: a nice scene, a star, and some CGI (computer-generated imagery...for me that means "stock" image for composite).
A nice barn and field scene at sunset set the stage for the star, our Lilah, to enter stage right and do her setter thing. Luckily, Lilah points bugs and butterflies, so the CGI portion came when I needed to go to stock images and find a bird replacement.
The result is below. Lights...camera...action! This one is called "The Flush."
