My current camera equipment;
Canon 18-135mm stm
Canon 55-250mm stm
Tamron 10-24mm non IS
My most used, but not limited to software are;
Lightroom 5.7 standalone
for this slideshow/video I used the two software options above. First in Lr5.7 where I sort and prepare the images for selection and conversion to jpg for the slideshow and its subject. I try to use images that reflect my actual journey at a location, to try and give the viewer a “walk with me” feel.
Once the images are exported to JPG in a “holding folder on my desktop, I then open PSE12 and select the “create” tab on the top right and select “slideshow”. This particular version of PSE actually allows me to set the frames and the transitions and the time on each slide should I wish, along with adding music (from YouTube music library, so I don’t break any licencing issues). I have quite a methodical way on the process now, but it has taken time getting there.
I first scroll one at a time through the images in the slideshow, once I have discarded “duplicates” or initial “I ‘m not sures”, then proceed to the add the “Pan and zoom option. This I think gives the images “live movement”. Then Titles are added along with the final piece of music, where I check it through again one more time before outputting it in one of the many options PSE 12 gives me.
This final product is then uploaded to YouTube, not to make money but as a compatible way of letting the viewer access from differing platforms.
In fact my main aim to “exhibit” my photography in this way as I actually live abroad at the moment, and the foreseeable future. Local galleries tend to help their own.
My inspiration for using this media as a method of exhibit, well I have to thank Viviane Sassen and John Gerrard at the Photographers Gallery in London. Both exhibited using giant projector screens with their image/slideshow playing through. I loved it!
So although I haven’t put exif data with every single image, I hope you see what I am trying to achieve….I welcome
