Ah, Andika! Â Your video really made me miss you guys, all of you! Â Please share a hug from me to everybody that was there, because this video warmed up my heart for the whole day. Â Thanks, brother!
So, JimOnLight.com Community, this video below was taken by Andika Pradana (an amazing photographer/videographer who has lots of imagery on Flickr, Facebook, and Vimeo) when I was in Stockholm at KTH in the fall. Â Andika is in a group of photographers that I consider a Master of Captured Lumens – the man can capture light among the best.
Skansen is “the firstÂ open air museum andÂ zoo in Sweden and is located on the islandÂ DjurgÃ¥rden inÂ Stockholm,Â Sweden. It was founded in 1891 byÂ Artur Hazelius (1833-1901) to show the way of life in theÂ different parts of Sweden before the industrial era.” Â It’s a pretty cool place – there were some amazing views of the harbor, Stockholm, and the architecture around the city from that island. Â I have tons of pictures from my travels to that place, I just have to get unbusy for a weekend to sort them!
My KTH class was there observing some of the period structures and how people in those era (1750’s-1850’s) dealt with daylight and available light. Â We did a lot of sketching in a particular structure assigned by group, and then compared our work to create a 3D representation of the “feeling” of the light in the room. Â I’ll post pictures of that too, it was quite fun – myself, lovely Valeria Mirarchi, and everybody’s pal, Jonas Godehart. Â You two are going to be working lighting designers soon, I am so proud of you!
Okay, enough rambling. Â Check out Andika’s video! Â He did a great job of capturing the entire project from start to finish:
