Kent Photo Survey. James Kielland photographer. Art and Football and Motivation are always created when this man and his Camera and artistic approach to editing arrive on the scene. He has been a contributor to NWPR for several years and we can never get enough of his work. This work includes thousands of pictures in a stop motion frame by frame process and it take hours and hours to create.
Today James unleashed his best work yet on the Football topic and paired with some of the best motivational thoughts ever he has made something here that if watched once a week or a day could change the world. This is the grind- life & football too. The metaphor so attractive to those of us in the game. We get it and this brings it all together. Watch this and begin to rise to the top of your potential. All pics from various Kent, Washington football and sports teams –
Kent Photo Survey was created to change perception and I dare say he is doing just that!

“This entire video is built purely from individual still images processed and combined to produce convincing motion. I developed the processing techniques on my own through a study of athletes in motion. One day I was studying classic paintings, all from a time before photography, and noticed that I found something odd in a classic Rembrandt about the look of an individual who was in motion. Rembrandt had never been able to see a person frozen in motion the way a photograph can capture it. Nor could a model be expected to realistically hold a midstride stance while the artist painted him. He could only try to imagine what this looked like. This was undoubtedly a challenge as the painter wanted to make sure the viewer would interpret the figure as being in motion, and not merely holding an awkward stance. And after many years of studying literally thousand of images of people in motion, I found myself unsatisfied with the portrayal of motion in these paintings, and decided to make a deeper study with the help of Kent’s student athletes.”
