This is a WIP for my entry in :iconfaestock: Faestock's Creative Challenge #25 It's a little over 1 minute :D

Original Image Dancing with the Light can be found here

Dancing With The Light by NTGreen

Stock used:

The lovely lady is the required stock image from Faestock's wonderful Victoriana series -

The arm with the lantern is from another image in the same series - ... I messed around with it considerably to get it to work ... warped and redid the hand so it could hold the lantern etc.

The Lantern is from mmp-stock -

All the rest is my own photography or creation (I spent way too much time painting the hair but it was the first time I have done this style and it was a fun challenge ... I even found some new tricks! :D)

I had some problems with the quality creating the .SWF (Flash) for this ...... anything smaller than this file turned out poorly! I even tried it without the music and it didn't seem to make a difference. Oh well, hope you enjoy! :D

Please, no reproduction, copying or duplication; in part or in whole of my photography, artwork or writing. If you really want to use one of my images (for any purpose) please note me and I will seriously
consider your request

I take screen prints as I am working with a free program called ScreenPrint 32 ... very basic but does what I want and nothing more (a perfect little tool for this job). When I have finished I just drag the screen prints into a "Movie" making program, I use Pro Show Producer as I find it easy and versitile. The hardest part is getting it converted to SWF for dA ... it would be a lot easier if the allowed .avi uploads but you have to join the "video" club. May try that but don't do that many of them and I am not sure if they would consider them for that division.

Thank you so much for the comment ... I was thinking of making it simpler and taking out the music but haven't had any time! I have seen the Camtasia stuff but I am just too messy a worker for that ... it would take hours to edit out all my fumbling about ;D

really simple way of doing it, and the result didn't seem like it would be done like this... amazing!!

thanks a lot and keep up the good work
