Hello! Welcome to the second 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: multiple Garrett Reynold’s 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 other times it’s just entertaining. 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 — Bar-to-crook-to-180
Another left over from the Cinema trip to California last year. This rail was a random one that Dak showed us. Weekday spot in front of someone’s house…it felt a bit shady, but a pretty heavy session went down. Garrett, of course, coming through with the next level stuff.
