In class today we created sequential images, as a practice task to use camera software on of phones and digital editing software. For my images here I just used images I had taken in another class but this was just an example to show how to create contacts and final images.
On the sequential images we looked at Eadweard Muybridge to begin our studies, his original sequential images were a revolution in Photography. The idea for the images did originate from a bet: 'In 1872, the former governor of California Leland Stanford, a race-horse owner, hired Eadweard Muybridge to undertake some photographic studies. Stanford had reputedly taken a bet on whether all four of a racehorse's hooves are off the ground simultaneously. On 15 June 1878, Muybridge set up a line of cameras with tripwires, each of which would trigger a picture for a split second as the horse ran past. The results, as shown in this plate, settled the debate' (Powell, 2013)
On some mobile phones you may need to convert images from HEIC to jpg so I used a converter online so that I could have jpeg images for my blog and for Photoshop and Pixlr
These are my contact sheets from my shoot, I used Photoshop to create my contact sheet. I opened Photoshop and clicked on File in the top menu, I then clicked on 'Automate' and then 'Contact Sheet'. A dialog box opened and I clicked on 'Choose' and selected my file of sequential images from my photo shoot, Photoshop then automated the process of creating the contacts once completed I saved the contact sheets by clicking on 'File' Save As' and then saved these on my computer desktop as a png file so that I could add these to my blog
