Silent films of the early 20th century had some pretty breathtaking stunts that would be made using a green screen in modern days. Just think of Harold Lloyd’s famous clock scene or Charlie Chaplin’s roller skating scene. Some of the stunts they filmed even seemed quite dangerous, but this video shows that it was, in fact, all a matter of perspective and clever planning.
Something came to my attention recently thanks to some feedback from close friends. This was called “Fixing the Keystone” or “Keystoning” and it simply means making sure that your verticals are vertical and horizontals are horizontal.
A very simple concept and also one which architectural photographers will have been on top for decades.
Here’s how you can fix the problem in just a few clicks!
Since the first tilt-shift timelapses started to appear online several years ago, it’s a look that’s been attempted, copied, and improved upon quite a bit. Tilt-shift lenses, however, can be pretty expensive, and for something that you may only use occasionally, an expense you may not be able to justify.
As a consequence, the tilt-shift look of many videos is created in post. In this video from VideoRevealed, Colin Smith shows us how we can quickly achieve the look in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Making a “good” or “nice” photo is so easy nowadays but how to be consistent when making series of photographs? Is it hard to do a full featured project using only one lens?
As my photographic career is fully focused on image sequencing, and mostly in form of time lapse, I always find some hassle every time I get assigned a non sequential photography job.
