So here it is, the initial idea for my final year project!!
The balloon rises up with a camera inside it. This is then popped, the camera falls to the ground caturing images as it does so.
The idea is to bring back a sense of fun in photography. With digital making photography easy and clean, everyday photography is being taken granted of and the fun and magic that it used to have is being lost. Capturing images that you're not in control of and at various angles, will also capture the manipulation of light as it falls to the ground. Potential uses for this type of product would be at festivals and funfairs.
So the next couple of months I will be playing with this idea and see where it takes me.
