My attempt at a cinemagraph. It mixes cinematography and a photograph, in a new media to conjoin the separate. (Created in Adobe Photoshop)
This is my dog in a suit, I spent about 10 minutes doing it and I think I shall do this as a test. I was inspired by seeing a drawing of a kangaroo in a suit and just thinking it looked funny. I am hoping to make this a series and so am uploading this now to note my progress in this project.
Supreme is a VERY recognisable brand. The clothing company rely on recognisability to sell their AMAZINGLY overpriced clothes, and it works. The company is now estimated to be worth just over $1bn USD. The main idea of Supreme brand anything: tops, hoodies, shoes even supreme brand $30-$40 bricks, is to simply slap the logo on it.
A white hoodie costs around £10. A supreme white hoodie can be as cheap as £494.
(I also like how the shipping is free)
But I am interested in photography, and more specifically, editing. I have merely chosen supreme as a style to imitate because it’s simple, recognisable and, to be honest, I want one of their shirts.
This edit I love. Supreme does have a line of clothing in which they place their VERY recognisable logo with celebrities (I am not sure if this image is one of them), but this concept is amazing to me. This one image I could analyse until my heart’s content, drawing out meaning after meaning, but I won’t because that would be boring.
What I am going to do in this project is to create a counter to the brand empire/domain of supreme, parodying their brand image, not to jest or to make fun but to almost make a contention against the brand domination of Supreme. Begining with Alone.
(I also love that glitch effect)
So, I'm still hung up on Glitch effects.
Is the link to a Tutvid video. This man knows everything about anything to do with Photoshop, Premiere, After-effects you name it, basically, I want his knowledge in my brain. In this video, he designs 5 glitch effect to follow along with, or use his ‘photoshop actions’ (these you apply to an image and it follows the steps the creator sets). I used this video to help me with my previous glitch effect post and have done two more, one following the video and one applying an action.
I feel I enjoyed the freedom of creating my own image, even following a step-by-step guide, as I had ultimate control. I also enjoyed working through the process, getting everything correct and having a product I felt proud of and knew how to make, applying an action felt like cheating and obviously I didn’t learn how to make the effect. In the future, I may use these actions after already knowing how to create the effect, or being too lazy to make an effect for someone else and simply apply the effect. I may even use this new found knowledge of the actions in photoshop to make some of my own. (Save me some time in the future!)
This is the first photo I took with the Nikon D300S. I also edited it with the new unknown Lightroom CC, opposed fro the old Lightroom CC Original. Comfort zones were made to be breached. This would have looked crap if I’d taken it with my phone and edited it in the old Lightroom.
I’ve always been fascinated with glitches, VHS footage and corrupted files, photo’s or videos. This effect is fairly simplistic but the corruption is intriguing to me.
I took a sweeping video of a clothes store in Melbourne I visited to capture the lights. The shot of the store attendant is one of my favourite photos I’ve taken, and so I asked for her permission to share this photo. I did not learn her name but to me, she’s better as the girl with the lights…
