Still Photo Effect
Photo Editing, Web Graphics
The parallax photo effect is a method of bringing still images to life using editing tools in Photoshop. In my case, I primarily used the Pen Tool. The final result was rendered into an MP4 file and uploaded to my YouTube channel. I purposefully chose my main subject so I could work against the cliché of a photographer moving towards the viewer with a camera as if ready to shoot. Instead I pull the photographer inward as the trees move forward, aiming for the unexpected.
