thoughts about shooting

today was the first day i went out and shot shot shot. with the total intention of shooting all day.
i got some nice shots from the train going down into the city from roger's park, some families in millenium park, some random children with their parents while we were waiting for the diversey bus, rosa y manny making dinner, and some dinner conversation.
rosa and manny (the mother and son) were a bit uncomfotable with the camera at first, but i do a bit of shooting then leave it running. that way i am getting more than they know, but also familiarizing them with having the camera going.
francisco (the dad) comes back on wednesday. i am hoping to get more then. especially because mindy (the daughter) is closer to her father . . .

on a different note, i got my alumni i.d. from saic, but i am not sure if i can use the lab. everyone that i know who still works there - wasn't there. maybe i will be downtown and try again tomorrow. i haven't figured out my game plan for tuesday, yet.
then again, i am not sure that i want to look at the footage before returning to alfred.

One second videos and Chicago

So my flight was cancelled. I get in tomorrow instead of tonight. I have 2 digital still cameras, Andy's polaroid, a mini-dv camcorder and 15 new mini-dv tapes and almost 2 weeks. I'll be posting small pieces of footage hopefully daily.
The Reyes Family has agreed to allow me to video tape them during my week staying with them in Skokie.
This past weekend I started making VERY short videos.
none of them are finished yet, but they range between one second and 6 or maybe 12 seconds.
Maybe some of that footage will have to run on a loop.
See you tomorrow!
