Thread: zooming from a photo

  1. #1

    Default zooming from a photo

    - i was watching a documenry on the shooting of john lennon a week or so ago and saw a really good effect that they used on a photo...

    basicaly the camera started very close to the still image and it was in focus, it then slowly zoomed out and an object (a tree for example) came into the foreground. at this point the new object was in focus and the backround was blured.. it continued to zoom out until another object came into focus and everything that was behind it then went out of focus.. it continued like this until all of the image was in shot - and at this point the whole image was all in focus and looked crisp.. ..

    any ideas on how this is done???

    ^^hope that makes sense..

    cheers

    "And it seems to me..." lol.. that that photo was a photo montage.. with various layers... you know?? They focused one layer while defocusing the other.. and so on, and so on...
    I'm not sure it was made like that.. perhaps some of the great moderators of this forum could give a idea??
    Cheers!!

    In my opinion kristovao has already put you on the right track.

    I too think this was a mutli layered image. You can import multiple images, each with an alpha channel or import a multi layered PSD file as a sequence.

    Then you can pan, zoom, blur, move across and control each image layer seperately. It very simple to do, probably just a but time consuming to get it exactly how you want.
