In this Light Diary Vidcast the theme is “River Songs” and Craig discusses the thought process that led to the creation of a series of vertical river scenics of the Virgin River in Zion National Park. Craig talks about the endless qualities of reflected light that make Zion such an amazing place to shoot. Craig discusses the idea of previsualization, both in the context of movement in the water and in the context of finding foregrounds for the super wide angle lens and how those previsualizations figure into his river scenic landscapes. Craig discusses the creative use of shutter speed and implied motion for river scenics. Craig also discusses the technique of handheld digital sketching to feel his way to potential shots. Craig talks about the visual design motifs of dynamic balance and rhythm. Finally, Craig shows the digital recorder he used to record the 30 second sound clips of the river soundscapes that accompanied these shots as they were posted to Light Diary.
