Tree Study

Tree Study is a small zip file of 350 jpg files that are reference photos of trees.  

 Several of the photos are scrolling ‘close up’ panoramas of the tree trunk texture surface shot close to the base of the tree trunk, with aim of camera following trunk up from the ground level, and then angled to capture base shape of the branches, etc. higher up.  Some of the other photos are simply texture photos of the same type angle simply shot one after the other in a sort of hand done burst type of photo.

These photos were shot in a local park. There’s about 3 trees being photographed here. There’s also one file that is a ‘close up’ of grass in the same are these trees were located.  

These are mainly reference photos to capture the basic texture of the tree trunk’s bark and basic shape of the tree and branches.

Since there are some panoramic shots in here dimensions of each image vary widely.  On one extreme we have some dimensons so wide as 912 x 17534 and 1577 x 10147, 1382 x 11574 etc. Most of the simple one shot images are 4032 x 1960 or 1960 x 4032. 

All of these were shot by hand, so unfortunately no aid was used to keep camera lens equidistant from the texture between each image. I did try to be steady, but that doesn’t always work in this type of random enironmental photography.  In the future if I try to do more studies like this I plan to use some a small toy truck to act as a dolly to keep the camera’s angle more steadily equidistant from the texure being shot.
