On Friday I released “Behind the Lens with Liz Czinege Photography”. It’s a short little video with a bit of fun, a bit of talking and a lot of newborn sweetness.
All I can say is wow. The response that I have already received from this video is surprising – thank you so much! (If you haven’t seen it yet the video is embedded at the bottom of this post.)
This video has been a long time in the making. About six months ago I decided that I wanted to put together a little video that showed what went on during a newborn session. I found the perfect mom willing to let me bring a videographer to her baby girl’s newborn session. Five months and 45 hours of labour later, we were ready to film!
I was completely in my element photographing 8 day old Madilynn, it truly is my happy place. But as it turns out, I am better behind the camera then in front of it. When it came time for the one-on-one interview, ouch, painful! It took half an hour of uncontrollable laughter (I couldn’t even say my name… awkward.) before I was able to talk – I guess I never really got over being shy!
However painful the process, I love the result! Here it is!
When our parents and grandparents took photos it was to document. But it recently occurred to me that today’s generation take pictures to share, on facebook.. on instagram.. but these photos never seem to get printed. They’re snapshots that scream “Hey, look at my food!” (I’m definitely guilty of doing this.) Our photos have turned into a way to share – with complete strangers – exactly what we’re doing at that exact time, rather then documenting the people we’re doing it with and the special times in our lives.
Recently my Grandmother passed away and when we sat down to look through photos, all of those photos meant something. They all had a story and through a sequence of a few photos we could figure out what that story was.
When I pass away, how will people look through my digital photographs? On a computer? There’s just something different about holding a photograph in your hand and passing it around the table – gathering around – laughing, sheading a tear; remembering.
What is going to happen to your photos when Facebook inevitably goes down the drain, or your computer crashes, or when CDs go the way of the floppy disk? Will you still have photos to hold in your hands?
