Opera House during Fire Water Festival 2009

Opera House Slideshow.gif

I've been going through my Aperture library looking for photographs to publish on my Photo a Day journal. A couple of weeks ago I found a series I shot in 2009 during the Sydney Fire Water Festival of the Sydney Opera House being illuminated by a light installation and posted one of them.

The show was amazing and I took many photographs that day. The Opera House was illuminated with abstract designs that changed constantly. It looked awesome.

I thought it would be a good idea to create an animated gif of them, so here it is.

It's the first gif I create and I'm still learning. It's a little over 2mb, so it may take a while to load. Sorry about that. I'm not sure how to make it smaller.

The process was fairly simple. I created a slideshow in Aperture with each slide playing for .10 seconds and the transition in dissolve for .01 second. I exported that as a video at 720p resolution. Then I dropped that into a beta version of Gifrocket and what you see is what I got.

I'm excited to play with animated gifs more in the future.
