Photoshop – Action Sequence
You will be combining a set of at least 6 images you shot with a digital SLR camera into an action sequence.
– Sequence of 6 Action Photographs – shot with a TRIPOD!
– Pick up a Booklet so you know what you will be doing.
– Get a Digital SLR and a TRIPOD
– Set the camera on MANUAL focus and exposure
– Find a location where you have enough room to move ACROSS the image, and there is ENOUGH LIGHT
– Have your subject stand in the middle of the shot and FOCUS and ADJUST EXPOSURE
– Think of an action and take at least two sequences of shots
o TIP: Use actions that move across the screen, not towards the camera
o Take several series WITHOUT moving the camera – this will give you more choice later!
o Camera speed should be at least 1/250 – blurry Images are NOT acceptable!
PHOTO 2 or 3:
– Shoot a second sequence at the same location, or place yourself in 6 spots around the site.
– You could also shoot the second set of photos placing yourself in random locations, or interacting with yourself.
– Make a combined image of both sequences – you will need 12 layers!
o Photoshop file of your combines images that uses AT LEAST 6 layers.
o Crop all edges cleanly
o Check that all overlap looks natural
o Make sure the background looks consistent
o Follow the steps in the hand-out to make a combined image
– Save the Photoshop (.PSD) file (I want to be able to see all layers)
KEY CRITERIA: Image in layers, clean edges, alignment, consistent lighting, fast shutter, subject in focus
CHALLENGE: Include shadows in your images, to help the image look ‘real’
