Valentine's Day Animation

If you are knowledgeable in photo-editing techniques and have access to video-creating software, here is a fun way to make your photos come to life. Simply take your photo, select a few areas (like the acorns and the heart in the picture above), change their hue and saturation settings and save each iteration of colors. Next import the photos into your video software and place in frames, repeating the pattern a few times, then determine the speed of your animation. Save your video then share with your friends! If these steps are more than you can handle, you are welcome to share this nutty video. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Photo shot with SHOTBOX and my Samsung Galaxy S7 Smartphone. Photo-editing done in Fireworks and Camtasia.

Below you can see the setup inside the box. I used a cardstock print out of grass as the base and a vinyl print of small, pinkish bricks as the background. I used a stuffed animal with a heart and a bowl full of nuts and acorns that had elements that I could select to edit the color of specific pieces. I added the text and edited the colors in Fireworks and compiled the images into a video in Camtasia.

About the Author

My name is Jodie and I am a wife and mother of four. I love to bake, craft, travel, exercise, hike and explore new things. I'm excited to use the SHOTBOX to highlight my creations and to show you how this simple tool can bring light and life to your passions too.

The SHOTBOX is a collapsible tabletop studio that uses high powered LEDs to create a perfectly lit “micro-studio” environment. They are now taking pre-orders to be delivered for Christmas.
