Hey! Welcome to the third edition of Gif(t) Images. To simply repeat the premise: this is where I’ll be giving you the gift of several GIF sequences that I’ve shot in recent history. You get the pun, right? Giving you a GIF image as a gift. Or something. Let’s just explain the concept here… It’s quite obvious that the advent of digital cameras and the rapid technical progression of BMX has left photographers shooting more sequences than ever. Sometimes those sequences are just that: a sequence of images meant to be laid next to one another. These days, though, most people try to shoot what some of you may know as a “seamless sequence” or “morph sequence.” That’s basically what you see directly below: two Garrett Reynolds’ in one image, using the “peak action” to correctly show what went down. Much like everything in life, this is done in Photoshop. But, there’s often a lot of frames that get left out of the final image. And there in lies the idea behind Gif(t) Images…

Fair warning: some of the GIF’s are fairly large, so they’ve been broken into separate pages. Wait for them to load properly and every photo is available larger if you wanna click it.

Garrett Reynolds – Manual-to-barspin-to-wallride

This school got destroyed on the Cinema trip last year. Garrett comes through yet again with stuff that the average person wouldn’t even consider possible. The amount of time/distance he has from when the bars are just at the sweet spot to the wall doesn’t even seem possible. And, if the wall looks slanted to you, it’s not. The “double exposure” version of this ran in the NORA Cup 2013 article in Ride.
