2 things got me working on this...the awful weather..okay easily combated with the right clothes but it's been so cold and so wet...we've had a tanker here to pump out lying water..the wells are all full and there is nowhere else for it to go...and the reception that Retrograde got...many hits from all over the place. So I've reworked and standardised a clump of mono images but with hardly any thematic discourse...just stuff I've done over the years and to be honest...mainly with my hard working and totally reliable Nikon 20mm F2.8 and all these conversions have been done in Photoshop CC...sometimes the 20mm had an ND110 screwed on and sometimes not so if the weather is grim with you I hope looking at these may pass a bit of time..
...the animation of...or cinemagraphs or never ending looped thingy.... I seem to have cracked it but to what purpose?? Could always boost my Instagram profile (!) once you have the formula though chopping up short clips into seamless rolling images is quite mesmerising here are some mind altering images from Armand Djicks that could be classed as eyeball popping and something to fill those long winter months faffing around on your computer trying to get something close ....not quite seamless but amazing work... they do end up as large files though so please excuse the 'squashed pixel nature' of the files I'm posting I'll leave you with another one
Nothing like sitting around waiting for that new piece of kit to be delivered, tracking it online , seeing it's out for delivery and then giving a shrug as the online tracking page shows it's back in the depot...a story played out many hundreds of times over the Christmas period....oh Happy New Year peeps...so I've had a bit of a look back on the Manchester years...all the images above are from there and so, I thought why not whack a few together whilst I'm waiting for the pack to arrive, it's a fluid Pan Tilt system so that should open up a few more video possibilities...anyway these are from a period of 4 years or so...now here's the thing I used to do talks to Camera Clubs usually with a sackful of this type of thing to show, it sometimes felt as though I was in my pants eviscerating hamsters by some of the reaction, but there again I didn't set out to please all of the people all of the time just try and get the images out of my head..happy daze.....and who is not to say I may run back to this once I get all the videoing out of my system....(260 now online at getty if you want to snatch a look) right back to forlornly looking out of the window wishing my parcel would arrive...maybe tomorrow.
Happy New year one and all, greeted with howling gales, heavy rain interspersed with hail so time to sit down for a bit of a faff. So no sniggering at the back this is my first animated looping GIF as well as looking at layering video files up....meh...I really have learnt a lot from just this one image and there are plenty of how to do it things out there on the web, I'm still learning so I wouldn't be as bold as to stick something online with a 'This is how it's done' label smacked on to it...any way...I seem to have got the hang of saving...now just a jump into making them seamless, beats standing out in the wind and rain and like yesterday..exfoliating sandstorm and wind whipped plankton up at Keremma...dedication.... ..Bonne annee, bonne fête et bisou bisou
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
