'Peter, Shirley and Louis' is one of a series of portraits of creative families. With this work I am principally exploring the traditional portraiture type pose through the medium of moving image to create what I call cinematic portraits, that is at the intersection between photography and film. I imagine I'm capturing what might occur if the sitters were posing for a painting or photograph, with the subtle changes to their positions that can occur over extended periods of time. I enjoy the contemplative like visual spaces between stillness and movement, and the viewer interpreted narrative this may produce. I usually work intuitively at a location, in a small number of single takes and at fast frame speeds, so a selected entire take is used (therefore no edits just some post production adjustments). I also look for a prop element which has a continuous subtle motion, which in this particular instance is the bouncing cantilevered light.
