Here is a video of all my 1,750 photographs combined along with a couple of clips from on the plane. I made this in iMovie as you may recognise from all the flashy text effects :P and I’ve sped up each frame to 1/5 of a second so you can view my journey over the short five days in a quick snippet. The music is Holiday by Dizzee Rascal (produced by Calvin Harris) – Hip-Hop style and perfect for the fast flow of photos.
This a very quick simple tutorial and a bit of fun! I have made a range of different sizes – 50px, 75px, 100px, 150px patterns so you can easily apply the effect in seconds. I suggest you try some masking of layers as well to experiment with design :).
At the end of last month I flew to Alice Springs and explored the surroundings of Central Australia over an extended weekend. It was an unbelievable trip and the experience of almost pure Outback was so unfamiliar/unique to me that I found it was amazing how Australia offers such a dynamic range of landscapes and culture from cities to the vast outback. I documented my trip visually as you’ll see as you scroll down – although some of these images are very revealing of Central Australia it is still nothing compared to being there, however with the use of panoramic photographs I hope it offers a better representation of the broad spacious lands that I experienced.
Using the Lomo-Effect technique in Photoshop I made this photograph a little more colourful and vibrant. The bricks worked well with the lomography effect, the sky and grungy wooden boards was a good balanced contrast. I would have liked to HDRed the shadows more and reveal the detail.
