At last at last at last! I have been trying to find a simple way to form sequence shots into one frame. I have asked around, spoken to loads of people (most of whom had no idea) and it always ended up with using Photoshop which I don't have and also sounds very complicated. After finally giving myself a deadline that I have to get the better of this I did more and more browsing and came across a video demo how to do it by just using a simple Paint ship programme. Why can't more people be so simple?? This guy did a really good job of explaining the whole procedure........for me to understand it then it really must be simple. There was still quite alot of swearing, huffing and puffing etc etc until I actually mastered it but that was mainly down to not having the right pictures for a sequence. So I have also learned something else about my approach to how to take my sequence shots when shooting. The video demo is Pinkbike and I downloaded Paint.net cos my paint programme was not sufficient enough.
After searching thru my photo library I came up with a sequence of pics I thought would work cos the kiter moved to a different position in each frame and it DID work and the result is above! The main problem I had was that from where I was shooting there was not a sufficient amount of distance between each move to fit the new figure in and as backgrounds etc have to be matched it did not work out. I also tried a wave riding sequence but that proved to be even more difficult since the breaking wave in each frame was obviously different to the previous frame.
Hopefully I will now improve on it and learn some tricks on touching up the pic once it is ready etc.
