As we’re counting down to the last launch, photographers Scott Andrews, Stan Jirman and Philip Scott Andrews decided to demonstrate the process of launching a shuttle in a new and innovative way. Using time-lapse photography, they turned the 6 week process of prepping a shuttle into a gorgeous four minute video called “Go for Launch!”
Not only was I blown away by the well choreographed “ballet” of loading a shuttle on boaster rockets, I found the visuals demonstrate the fine art of sequencing. You feel the flow and movement of the process through interesting angles and brilliant lens choices. A lot can be learned from this piece.
My hats off to the photographers and NASA for giving us this kind of visual access and a photography lesson to boot.
