SO the conversation went something like this…
Me : It’s all set up, could you just click the shutter while I move in the frame?
Kim : Not everything has to be a GIF you know!
Me : Mmmmm I’m not so sure…
I love making GIFs, I can’t help it. A GIF is where you combine a series of photos together to make the action move. And I make them A. LOT.
Don’t get me wrong, I love capturing still images, ones that stand on their own and tell the story. But more often than not, I see things as moving images. It’s just more exciting to me and seems like the bridge between stills and video. Which is my kinda work.
These chairs are famous at the ACE, hundreds of photos have been taken on them before we arrived, and I know SO many more were taken during Oasis. I had in my head the photos and GIFs I was going to make, long before I got there. And the chairs did not disappoint.
Wanna learn how easy GIFs are to make… see if you’d like to join me in GIF addiction?
This tutorial is in photoshop CS5 – there is a tutorial for Elements users here – let me know what you create… I’d love to see it.
