Startrails photography video | How it was done

Personal project
Alejandro Pérez: Photography, video editing, subtitles

Startrail photography assembly of 400 photos using StarStax. The video is a screenrecording while Startax was blending the images in lighten mode (with and without comet-like mode). I have separated the image in two:

  1. The startrail
  2. The motorway and buildings.

I would have obtained an overexposed result of the motorway if I had used all pictures to blend the motorway and the buildings (as I used it to blend the startrails). That’s why I only used 15-20 significant pictures (I chose the ones with the best car light trails) to compose the lower part of the image. Then using a video editing software (like Premiere Pro) to assemble the two parts of the picture and to reverse the shots.

Gear: Canon ESO 5D Mark III + EF 16-35 f/2.8 + Tripod + automated remote control
Software: Starstax, Lightroom, Photoshop, Premiere Pro.

Graphic design | Geneva International new runway and terminal

The project history

Poorly done calculations predicted that Cointrin would be jammed by 1985. Faced with this threat, a radical solution was taken: adding a second runway on the territories of Collex-Bossy and Versoix by connecting it to the one of Cointrin. This was the project called “La piste en baïonnette” (bayonet runway) of 1969. If the public discovered the project by that year, the plans date in fact from 1953, when Meyrin or Ferney-Voltaire were only modest villages, and when airliners were not even yet equipped with jet engines.

The project

I worked with three Bachelors students in social education at the “Haute école de travail social Genève” (HETS). They decided to look at the socio-professional integration of a person with a disability. They wanted to raise, study and observe the themes of integration, autonomy, self-determination and participation of people with disabilities.

A big thank you to our friend Alejandro Pérez for his availability, his help, his listening, his advice, his benevolence, his more than active participation and his patience during the video editing.

– Angela, Camille, Julie

For eight months, the three students and I immersed ourselves in creating an audiovisual record of the professional life a person with a disability, which made it possible to observe his reality in great detail. At the end of this research project, the students were convinced of the importance of accompaniment in the process of professional integration. They were also certain that the environment of the adapted job plays a key role since it allows the social participation of the person.
