Mischa’s fun to take photos with and happy to let me shoot. I wasn’t intending to make gifs when I took these, so I have a few other photos to post, but I’m trying to play with photos not just shoot and edit, so here’s this.
I found two easy tutorials for making gifs in photoshop CS5: Basic Gif and one for adding kind of fade in / fade out effect to “smooth the gif out. I think both have their place, but made one of each of two different photo sets just to compare.
I met Mischa at Flatspot Shop and we headed out to Kensington Skatepark. Mischa took a couple laps of the stairs for me while I stood in the bowl. Here’s the gif no fade effect:
with the fade effect:
Sometimes things don’t go your way, good thing Mischa was wearing a helmet. I didn’t keep shooting when he went down, it was a thud, you get the idea. Fortunately, he’s was all good.
