Video – How to create Time Lapse Photography

Here’s a perfect video…Watch how it’s done technically.  Just in case you’re interested in how-to

Time-lapse photography

is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence.

When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.

For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 30 frames per second.

The result is an apparent 30-times speed increase.

Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of high speed photography or slow motion.

Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, e.g. the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced.

Photography • Nikon D7000

Now, there’s a few basic steps to take in creating a time-lapse film:

  • Choose your subject.
  • Figure everything out.
  • Shoot your still photographs.
  • Edit your photography  in Photoshop (Optional).
  • Assemble all your photos together into a video.
  • Edit your vide0 … add titles, music, and all that jazz.

Sure, they seem simple  but along the way it can get really confusing. (Hence, the important of Step #2.) There are countless ways to do shoot time lapse photography, based on what you’re shooting and what equipment you have.

How the Final Time Lapse Photography Movie Appears
Your final movie can end up two ways: blocky or smooth and seamless. With blocky, shots will seem to abruptly change into the next – in a crowded street scene, for example, a person might appear in one part of the screen and then, blip!, suddenly be halfway across the screen in the next frame.

The Magic Formula
Most movies show around 20-30 frames per second; the more frames per second, generally the smoother the movie will play back (though of course, this depends on other things too). If we’re going to make E.T.’s flower come back to life, we’ll want it to be shown at around 24 fps and be smooth and seamless.

We also need to ask how long we want the final movie to be. We’re thinking E.T.’s flower coming back to life to should last around 30 seconds… so, some quick math to find out how many frames we need to capture: Read the complete article here…

Inkjet sublimation is the process used to decorate the ceramic tile coaster, using The Tile Master™ heat press. Epson Inkjet printers and sublimation inks print the transfers used to sublimate the tile coasters with unique artwork by Jackie Jacobson. The one absolute requirement of this process is that the tiles must have a polymer coating on them. When a tile is decorated using the sublimation process the image is transferred into the polymer coating and actually becomes a part of it.
The tile art coasters are manufactured in the Jackie Jacobson Studios in the Palm Springs area. Stop by the studios for a tour of the tile art production.

Flower Arranging – Design Idea

Painting Techniques – Collage

 

Painting "Poppy Bouquet I Square"

 

“The art of arranging flowers was first documented in the 17th century, when the Dutch, in particular, painted wonderful informal arrangements of flowers…”

IDEA

  1. To paint an arrangement of flowers in similar colors into a bouquet composition. A  “collage” even though I’m not gluing/pasting . I am assembling different forms.
  2. Start with inspiration photos, which I use for reference to do the painting

PROCESS

  1. Create a design idea – drawing of the shapes that I want to use.
  2. Paint images into that design idea layout

COMPOSITION_DESIGN IDEA

Composition Design Idea

REFERENCE/INSPIRATION PHOTOS

CONCLUSION

  1. I painted the focal point flower #1 (the star)  larger than the plan
  2. I pushed #2 back further and really subdued its value
  3. I needed a bud somewhere so chose the upper left corner and lower left corner (with another flower)
  4. #4 became my next star (the supporting actor)
  5. I would have been lost without the design plan idea, and a lot of inspirational photos.

So, there it is. I hope you’ve enjoyed moving through the design idea process to create a collage painting. Let me hear your thoughts. Thank you.
