I got a call the other day from one of the young men in Troop 3 asking if I’d spend part of the day with them as they visited and photographed on the WWU campus and in Fairhaven.Â I agreed and had a good time wandering around campus in the morning and the historic neighborhood in the afternoon. I carried my pocket camera and had a short animated video in mind while shooting.
Last week I was at the PPA ImagingUSA conference and learned aboutAnimoto. This was an opportunity to play with the free version, which is limited to 30-second videos. It works the same for longer versions, but you have to pay.
Here’s a clip from Western:
And from Fairhaven this afternoon:
Everything in the two videos was photographed with a Canon S70. The raw files were processed in Adobe Lightroom 2.2, then exported as JPEGS and uploaded to the Animoto site to create the videos.
