Having captured all the images of the paintings in progress, the processing of the hundreds of individual high-resolution image files is even more laborious; each file has to go through numerous edits including in Lightroom, Photoshop, Da Vinci Resolve (for creating the video). Though it was all done meticulously throughout it is impossible to get an exact registering of the images as the camera (though used as accurately as possible) was not fixed in its place. That would have meant having to create an extensive set up in the studio at the outset of this MA – setting up something akin to William Kentridge’s set up for his image capture. That would have been beyond my possibilities at the time but it is something definitely to bear in mind for the future.
For now, I am very happy with the huge improvement in visual quality that using the high res. image files permits.
