Movie montage gives new perspective to your still images

11

Photographer Star Rush created the video above from her iPhone 5 using the app Splice. She found the process of sequencing her still images helpful for thinking through how she'd organize images for a photo essay or exhibition.

"When thinking about the ordering of images, I think about how they 'talk' to one another, what one has to 'say' to another," she explains in her recent column for The App Whisperer.

Let's hear from you: Have you created videos from your still images in order to share them, or as a way to think through how you'll arrange them for another project?

Is coming up with one really nice photo trumped by just slideshow'ing a bunch of bad ones ?

My two first Splice-slideshows are here:

Paris Streets:

Volleyball: http://roelh.zenfolio.com/p1046028174/h5854a698#h5854a698

I'm always interested in constructive feedback. Thanks.

I found the above slideshow a bit underwhelming (good music and some, though not all, good images; but the sequencing and transitions were sketchy at best).

Nevertheless, I took a look at the app. Glad I did.

I'm currently in the process of uploading my own very first efforts : a B&W slideshow of Paris images and a colour slideshow of volleyball action shots.

Stay tuned.
They will come in this gallery: http://roelh.zenfolio.com/p1046028174

Can't we just stick to English? I call it "follow the flow".

iPhoto has a nice feature that lets you export your photo album into a video. I think many photo editing program does one way or the other. But I dislike the fact the a video is significantly larger than the photos and at a lower quality. But if I have to share the photos to be played on DVD or youtube. This is the only way to go.

"follow the flow" doesn;t sound English at all, it sounds very American.

This is that high art form using "camera phones". Images don't just "follow". "Talk" is much more "artsy".

Here's my video made from stills back in 2009. From the 2 days we spent with our daughter and her sister in NYC, All photographs in order of our stay, everything we did, everyone we encountered all in 1 minute.

In my country the video can not be seen - message content from umg - is there another possibility to see the video?

Yes! Pull all of your bad images out of your recycle bin, and make a slideshow using really bad music.
Voila!
