Original vs. Edited / Gif Process Tag Game
Thanks to @she-who-the-river-could-not-hold for tagging me!
I save all my psds, so this was a fun game for me to participate in. On the left, the gifs are original except for frame selection and speed change (my go to for everything is .07s). The Octavia gif is lightly cropped as well. The gifs on the right have been colored, sharpened, and blurred.
I’ve only been giffing and using Photoshop since last April, so I’m still experimenting, troubleshooting, and finding my style. A lot of the scenes in the 100 are extremely dark. For the top three (and most of the other gifsets on my blog) I’m mostly trying to brighten and enhance the existing colors so the scene no longer looks like it was filmed in my grandmother’s basement.
I spend a lot of time reading/watching tutorials and trying to figure out what all the buttons in Photoshop actually do. The Echo and Octavia gifs were experiments in changing the mood entirely by messing around with the camera raw filter. The Echo gif went from Praimfaya to a crisp winter hunting scene, and Octavia’s gif went from Luna’s shipping container to being part of my “Bronze Goddess” series.
I’m tagging some other talented gifmakers from the 100 fandom. We’ve all giffed the same scenes at this point, but it’s truly amazing to see how everyone brings a their own perspective with every new set.
