This is seriously fun.
After a trek into town today I returned home armed not only with the awesomely good new Villagers album, but with about two hundred photographs. Stopping at three locations – the Spire, the GPO (which is right beside it, really) and my haunt The Academy, I blasted quick shots of each venue, like some sort of demented tourist. I got one nice, correct shot of each (to be used as a base) and then lots of unplanned ones – pictures that were too bright, or not bright enough, of mad angles so of nothing but sky, that would be used to overlap it.
I arranged them in CS5 (the trial version) and voila. I don’t want to blow me own trumpet, but I reckon I’m a fucking genius.
Okay. Well maybe not. But they look nice, right? Lovely sky there on O’Connell Street. Don’t see that enough.
This one needs work though:
Got too many of the place itself, and not enough photos of the surrounding areas/foreground. And the sky’s as dull as dishwater. In fact the whole thing is a bit pale and dullish. Quick edit there – everything’s a tad better now!
Yer man on the bike is gas. Lookit ‘im there with his little hat, singing to himself. Good man.
Anyway, as i was saying it’s a learning curve I’m on. I’ll get the hang of this thing yet.
