Facebook loves video, apparently, so I have been trying to do more. Which then brings another problem, what do I do videos of?
I have thousands of photos, I could do lots with those, but I would like to do more that is a little different.
As I am trying to get my editing group off the ground, I thought maybe I could do one that shows the layers of an image and how it is developed. So the following video has five images, they have been opened in Photoshop and all the layers were switched off. Then one by one they are switched back on so you can get an idea of how they were made.
You can see that each one is different and they each take a different amount of time to process. It is something I’ve tried to explain to many people, and this is why it is hard or impossible for me to teach people how I edit my photos. You need to know what I’m thinking, be in my head, and frankly, that would be too scary.
All the photos are cityscapes of Melbourne. Seemed like a good place to start. There may be other other videos like this if people like them.
I hope you enjoy this video.
