I love the @Costica Acsinte Flickr photos. I like them enough to try to make one. cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward Here’s a super quick video on how I did it. Essentially, steal beautifully broken chunks of those photographs and add them as layers to your photo. I did say “transfer” instead of “transform” and I use all Mac shortcuts. I am also sorry for having no idea how to say “Costica Acsinte” or “opacity”.
I’m a bit behind on this one and I’ll mix it with some of the stuff I did this week in Portland. Clearly a violation of several statues and possibly one libation. I’ll start with the most recent stuff because I’m actually pretty happy with how it turned out. It was my first time shooting with the camera in black and wide mode in the preview. It changed how I shot much more than I would have thought. To commemorate Alan’s visit and exactly how sweaty we both were following this lunchtime photo trip.
I’ve shot the Richmond Zombie Walk for the last few years and have used a few different lenses. This year I opted for the 85mm and went super shallow at 1.2. That made for some really interesting shots but also resulted in a large number of missed shots. The 85 is slow to focus and it needs a couple of feet to focus. The zombies had the tendency to lunge in too close and/or at the last minute. Even with those misses, I like how many of the shots turned out and I remain amazed by how much work and skill goes into many of the costumes. He was filming his son with a camera on a selfie-stick. He was so happy. The Straw Man who was part of the Wizard of Oz group which was an entirely impressive group. Seeing zombie parents with their children was odd. I think this guy was driving the car that was responsible for the traffic jam I was in. He looked lost amongst the police and wreckage. Traffic started moving before I could try another shot.
