Sleep Narratives Test Run

Sleep Narratives
These are test runs for the Sleep Narratives project in which I use time lapse photography to capture images every 2 minutes of people as they sleep. Challenges in getting enough tonal range with the low lighting. Set this up over my own bed to test run and minimize any challenges before running the project with others. Shutter a bit loud though I acclimated to it after a night or two. Will try to have some sort of white noise going during shoots to minimize the disturbance of the shutter sound. Also challenges in suspending the camera over the bed. Here is where I owe a big thanks to Steve Gittings for building me a portable rig that I can set up over nearly any bed!!! Thank you, thank you. Ready to go on the road!!! Volunteers??
