Today I used after effects for the 1st time in the workshop. I stared with the Sentence

If I had a world of my own everything would be nonsense’ – Alice in Wonderland

I started by adding every word of my sentence into the page them working on from there. I started with the word If… which I made fall from the side then rotate to place and then did different things for the rest of the words such as… I – Faded in Huge and shrieked down to size, Had – Grow from nothing into the right size, A – Grow in size then span in a circle back in place, World – swung downwards and so on with the rest of the words. In the end i made all the words line up nicely and fit into a nice block. After this i need to tidy it up then add sound to it to make it a complete project.

In the workshop I was practicing processing again. In this workshop I started of by remembering what I had learnt before. I made a colourful 60×60 square in a 600 x 200 body to show what I had learnt from last week. Then I made it so the square would change colour every time it was clicked on, I then started working with a slightly larger square. Every time you clicked on it it would change from Red > Orange > Yellow > Green > Blue > Purple, In that order. Then i started to add a ‘randomCol’ function Which means out of all the colours I had chosen, When I clicked it would chose a random colour out of them all. Then we changed the format of the processing from Java to JavaScript. This then allowed me to open up the document into a webpage from where I can view it along with the file name and what program I used to make it.

My Example of Short Exposure Photos

So After releasing that i couldn’t take Short Exposure photos of fire works due to being faster then what the human eye see’s i had to do something different. I started by taking photos of the water coming out of the tap but the images come out too dark. I also tried taking some Short Exposure photos of objects around my house but due to the objects not having much movement they didn’t look like Short Exposure photos and again came out to dark. I then got a bucket of water with a glass and went outside. I asked my house mate to help me by throwing the water into midair as i took a photo. The photos came out amazing, seeing the water form different shapes in the air as it falls with the gravity. Its something my eyes cant see normally so its interesting to see that in an image. Lastly I took my new skills to action and took my camera to a concert. I was taking normal photos but they kept coming out blurry due to them moving around a lot. So I then decreased the exposure so i could get a nice sharp image of the concert without blurring. They came out a lot better then i thought but then again it came out darker than what it was but it was quite amazing seeing the Co2 plunge out onto stage and to capture it in a single photo

My Example of Long Exposure Photos

So this week we were set with a new Task, So I started with Long exposure photos. I started by taking images of my clock in my bedroom so it would track the second hand move around the clock, But some some reason this came out as just a white photo. So then i went outside and took some photos of the cars racing past but yet again they where to bright and blurred. I then thought maybe if i took the image in a darker place then i have done, it may come out less exposed due to taking in too much sunlight during the long exposure. It wasn’t till I accidentally left the long shutter speed on my camera till i next came to use it. I wanted to take a photo of my sparkler, When i noticed i left it on i started making patterns by moving the sparkler around. I then took more photos of my sparklers. I made some draw in the sky, Some I captured every spark as the flew off and Lastly the fireworks as the fly in the sky. This shows how the firework travels in the sky before the big explosion. I really enjoyed drawing with the sparkler in the night. I really was like painting with light.

My David Hockney Style Photo Collection


Here I have created my own style of photograph like David Hockney. I started by thinking of the word CYCLE! witch is the word we had to base these photos on, When I came to think what I could take a photo off till i thought about my Day-to-Day cycle and what it involves. When as i when to get my cornflakes for breakfast i thought this was a cycle! Being a poor student i cant afford anything other than cereal for my breakfast. So this is my cycle of every morning, Of having to wake up and pour myself a bowl of cornflakes.I then took a number of photos of the box at different angles and also some closer or further away. After this i placed them all together to give this weird and wacky way of viewing a box of cornflakes. Just like David Hockneys Work.

So with Halloween and bonfire night just round the corner, I took my camera out to take some photos of me and my friends playing around with sparklers, forgetting i changed the shutter speed last time using my camera. so i was left with this image of squiggles which was the trail made by the sparkler as it moved about. I then thought to take a short exposure photo of the sparkler. To then realise it didn’t work due to the short exposure takes a photo so fast it see’s a different image to what the human eye can see. So i just ended up with a few dotted embers flying from the sparkler. Lastly I tried my David Hockney photographs and now i need to place them together

For this workshop I carried on from last week, So back to a stage with circles in it again. This time i spiced it up a bit by adding in colour!! I did this by adding in 3 number into the colour chart. these are the RGB colours that make up all the colours in the rainbow, Where before I used 2 numbers which was a grey scale. I then added a draw function where if the number of circles are over 0 they will fill in a random colour, I did this by adding a ‘random’ function. I then did this with 10 circles with a diameter of 10-20. then after this i then added more and more circles and also increasing the diameter more and more which refreshed when i clicked the mouse each time.

Examples of Long Exposure Photographs

images (1) SONY DSC images

Long Exposure Photographs are when you set the shutter speed on the camera for a longer time than normal. With the camera lens open for longer it means you can catch more in an image then you normally would. This has been used to photograph cars racing past at night leaving a trail from the lights of the cars glowing in the night sky. This also can be called painting with light. This has been used to an advantage to trick the eye in a photograph, how it is done is simply by using a light or torch and shinning it and literally ‘Paint’ with the light just like a painting. Also it it good for time-lapse photos such as the starts moving but this exposure would last for hours. Long exposures are great to do at night as images in the day tend to blur and don’t look as good

Examples of Short Exposure Photographs

Short Exposure Photographs are when you set the cameras shutter speed to a shorter time then normal. This means you can take a photo of something what is too fast to see by the human eye, therefore looks highly impressive. Such images as water flowing, you can see each splash and ripple. Moving vehicles can be seen perfectly clear and background blurred to show how fast the vehicle is moving. Also you can take images of a sill object then damage the object such as shooting the object is quite common. Then you can see each and every little piece fly off from the object. Short Exposure photos pay close to detail and are good at catching in the moment photographs.
