Photography and Videography produce amazing results together.

Time lapse photography is a photography technique in which you keep your camera steady into one place over a long time and take many pictures over time. It has to do with blending together photography and videography techniques. The results can be really, really cool. I love these videos, they show a lot of imagination coupled with great understanding of videography and photography.

Time lapse photography is old stuff wrapped in new clothes

The principle is very simple: keep your photo camera in the same position over time and take lots of pictures, I mean lots of pictures. Then you string these pictures together with about a second or less in between them and play them. There you have it, there is the video. This is the same principle behind the first movies and Disney animations. These videos then show an old video technique wrapped in new technology.

What do these videos have to do with organizing your pictures? Well, they don’t have much to do, that’s true. However, when you consider just how many pictures these people took then you can start understanding the problems they faced in order to organize all these pictures in a useful way. How would you organize all these pictures for this purpose?

Just watch and marvel…I did !

The following text has been quoted from (See Resources below for link). They show ten videos, but I liked the following two the most.

“As with all of Keith Loutit’s videography, this piece was designed from thousands of stills that were later edited together and put into stop motion film. The way in which the artist edits these creates an appearance that you are watching a small miniature world of people. It’s amazing to watch.”

“Xavier Chassaing creates a magical film from 35,000 photographs and a combination of live projection mapping techniques. This is by far my favorite video. It’s absolutely amazing.”

although i had some programs installed on my PC for trial use because i wanted to start to organize my growing picture gallery, i was really frustrated to start trying them and to play with them to find out the best solution. So i started searching about organizing photos, and came directly across your great Resource on web. Thanks so much.

I have just one issue with one of my galleries, i should add price tags to my images, how can this be done ? do you know a good way ? any custom fields ?
i used Microsoft Word to produce tables and insert images with data because Excel is not able to insert images on cells.

Please let me know if you know any good ways.
Looking forward.

Mahdi…not sure I understand your question or questions.

The first thing you should do when starting to organize your pictures, start by using a carefully chosen folder structure. In other words, start organizing just by using folders on your computer. I like FastStone ImageViewer for this purpose…it’s a very fast image viewer.

Later if you need more refinement and searching capabilities you need to start tagging your pictures. For this purpose you need some software you have to pay for…like ACDSee Pro (which is cheaper) or Adobe Lightroom (which is the best but expensive).

As to your other question regarding adding price tags to your pictures…you can add price information in the image file name. Something like 2009_07_26-0089-4-50.jpg. Or you can add price to a folder in the folder name.

If you can use tags, then you can just easily create tags with price information and attach the price tags to your images.

Hope this helps.
