‘Origin’, a macro movie shot by Vadim Sherbakov on a DJI Pocket 2 handheld gimbal, serves as inspiration for creating one thing unconventional throughout chilly winter months, and continued lockdowns, in some elements of the world. The thought for this experimental video was born whereas Sherbakov was caught at dwelling. Restricted from touring to among the locations the place he shoots his magnificent quick movies, he determined to make use of a mix of inks, soaps, alcohols, and different family chemical compounds for creating fluid, liquid artwork.
‘For us, this venture represents the chance to showcase that this digital camera could be very versatile and might be utilized in many conditions together with some inventive photographs like these. We hope to encourage creatives to suppose exterior of the field in utilizing the Pocket 2 and create beautiful experiments,’ Sherbakov explains.
It took 3 weeks of experimentation earlier than taking pictures commenced. The DJI Pocket 2 was used with and with no macro lens connected. Over a interval of 1.5 weeks, over 7 hours of footage (690 GB value of quick clips) was shot. It took one other 1.5 weeks to post-process the 1.6% of clips that made it into the ultimate video. DaVinci Resolve 17 (akin to Adobe Premiere Professional) was used to reinforce some colours and scale back noise.
There have been some challenges with filming. As a result of Sherbakov needed to get inside shut proximity to the topic, the digital camera needed to be maneuvered to keep away from filming syringes and different instruments used to inject the liquids right into a bowl of water. Nonetheless, he credit the Pocket 2’s maneuverable gimbal, that may transfer left to proper, the flexibility to zoom out and in, and shoot 4K D-Log footage for bringing his imaginative and prescient to life.
It goes to indicate that even if you happen to aren’t in a position to journey to unique locations, you possibly can nonetheless use the instruments you’ve readily available to create one thing extraordinary. Full particulars on this and different initiatives may be discovered on Vadim’s web site.
