20170315: My FIRST Adobe After Effects Creation! So close to what I wanted!

video at the bottom!

20170315 9 Fathoms video screenshot

OK, I started to study ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS in January 2017. I had a conversation with a person about doing a music video. I got a vision of what I wanted to do.

This is the DEMO release of it. I need to go back and adjust the timing of some images and smooth out some motions & transitions.

However, this is about 90% plus of that vision in action. Totally self training here, I have no one to confer with on this. YouTube has supplied me with the training videos and MY own get in there and PLAY around, trial & re-try attempts after attempts….

Enjoy the show folks!

20161108 A CHALLENGE to the “Flat Earth people”…

big-meadow-star-trails-a-fb

Big Meadow star trails, stacked/layered Photoshop file of 120 continuous frames. All photos by me, all work in stacking by me…. Using a Canon 16-35mm “L” wide angle lens. At $2000 for the lens, no it did not bend the image. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography.

ALSO ALL “FLAT EARTH” PEOPLE, Please explain the the result of Earth’s rotation on weather patterns and ocean currents. The Coriolis effect makes storms swirl clockwise in the Southern hemisphere and counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere. SINCE ANY HUMAN BEING can cross the equator and observe water GOING DOWN ANY KIND OF DRAIN TO WITNESS THIS EFFECT… THERE IS NO GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY! I 1st crossed the equator in 1969, as a young boy, loved the fact that flushing the toilet or draining a sink, the water turned in the opposite DIRECTION of my California home’s drains. I was in the South Pacific, not a USA country.

 

OK, so a few photographer posts about flat earth and claims the Moon is not real because of the light on it is so flat looking.
I posted a comment about Soft box verses Hard light. He never responded to that, but claimed I was brainwashed in school into believing the moon is real.

20150222-post-photo-0083_post

Dark side of the Moon, Venus, Mars, Joshua Tree N.P. Notice that uneven light on the dark side as the area closer to the reflection of Earth on it. Some can bet attributed to the over spill of the bright crescent, but not ALL.
So here is some simple challenges to prove the earth has to be round and Photographs BY ME, to show my challenge and the laws of a sphere!
If you can’t prove me wrong, simple, you owe me EQUAL TIME TELLING THE WORLD ABOUT FUKUSHIMA AND THE DEATH OF YOUR OCEANS IN 4-6 YEARS.

MUCH MORE IMPORTANT!

big-meadow-cantrall-meadow-star-trailsfb

Big Meadow in down below in this photograph. Several MILLION DOLLARS in “fake stars” to let me catch both of the angles in this Cantrell Road shot and Big Meadow shot if a “Flat Earth” existed.
First off, the DUE EAST Big Meadows star trails shot, it also happened on a DUE WEST Cantrell shot.
This a a layered photograph of 120 or so consecutive frames, there for NO LENS BEND CAN OCCUR to cause the curves the stars are moving. The stars move in opposite curves in the north & south. A totally expected action of a sphere. There are at least a 1000 such photographs being taken EVERY NIGHT AROUND THE WORLD.
That can only happen in a sphere. or in a SINGLE PLACE where all the “FAKE LIGHTS” are arranged to fall just right.
bristlecone-pine-trip-star-trails-8-17-13fb

Bristlecone Pine Forest campground. With setting moon. I woke up at 3:30am. Saw the Moon setting and set up the camera. Again 150 or so consecutive frames. NO lens bend can OCCUR. The circle is the North Star in the center. The glow on the clouds is from the Moon as it set, notice the UNEVEN light on the sky. I did a little light painting for the plants, and climbed back into my tent 3 feet away. 120-150 frames.

Now, to explain the reason I said a SINGLE PLACE is simple, any PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER OR SERIOUS panorama photographer knows of PARALLAX ISSUES

definition:

the effect whereby the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions, e.g., through the viewfinder and the lens of a camera.
  • the angular amount of parallax in a particular case, especially that of a star viewed from different points in the earth’s orbit.

and uses a Panorama head on their tripod. They have spent time figuring out WHERE THE CAMERA HAS TO BE WITH EACH LENS THEY MAY USE. Because few millimeters count big time. So if you are to shoot star trails and have a flat earth with everyone believing “A Conspiracy lie of Sphere Earth”, you have to adjust every single camera to view from just the right angle, the right place. No 2 places would be the same. The “fake stars” would NOT line up.big-meadow-pano-1_mg_2046-_mg_2053_fb

Big Meadows panorama, taken same night of the star trails photo at the start of this post.
Sure you can turn in a circle and shot your frames and let the computer do it’s job, but the errors are VISUALLY SEEN by any professional graphic/photographer/artist.
THEREFORE, no one can set up the STAR TRAILS for Due East and Due West for every single photographer on the planet in the same day let alone in the same year. And HOW does the “Fake Stars ceiling make northern star bend North while at the same time the southern stars bend South and the middle stars go straight and NO VISUAL MISTAKES? Even Hollywood uses tons of computer graphics power and TIME to clean up stuff in movies. You can’t cover thousands of photographers all over the USA in a single night, let alone the world.

big-meadow-ne-star-trails-20140726fb

Notice that THIS TREE IS IN THE PANORAMA. Big Meadow, another star trails NE direction.

A flat earth, If I am 100 miles from where some one else shoots the “fake stars” simply will not line up. Physics folks.

5 miles away, back in camp, I shot this Panorama of the stars.

horse-meadow-camp-pano_mg_1822-fb

I can compare this pano to the Big Meadow pano and those stars will line up hours later in a different position. A sphere does MAKE THAT POSSIBLE, a “flat earth” does not!
Don’t believe me, fine go to a stadium with a moving roof. Set up wide angle cameras at the 50 yard line, the 2 goal lines, and in the seats of each end zone.
You don’t even need lights, just have each camera set to shoot the same number of frames at the same rate of speed, and whatever it correct exposure would be. Have the roof open, have the roof close.
Compare a layered photograph of each camera and those angles of the roof. The structural members of the roof do NOT LINE UP THE EXACT SAME WAY. The angles of the roof are different and the “in the seats end zone are extremely different angles from the 50 YARD line. Again, simple Physical evidence a Fat earth can not exist. THAT ANY ONE CAN PROVE TO THEMSELVES.
That is what a “FLAT EARTH” FAKE CEILING WOULD DO.

20131230-joshua-tree-star-trailsfb

North Star star trails, Joshua tree.

joshua-tree-star-trails-2-1-25-14fb

North Star star trails with light painting, same night as the other one, moved several 1000 ft west of the other shot.

joshua-tree-1-25-14-star-trails-120-framesfb

West facing star trails, same night as the North Star star trails photos above. I use 2 cameras or more in a single night. That straight line is an airplane passing over head.
Since I have shot stars in Arizona and 2-3 days later have been in northern Nevada, doing the same thing, the COST to adjust all the those “fake stars” just for me would be in the hundreds of Millions of dollars for any standard movie set! I have traveled 500-600 miles north latitude and 100-150 miles west longitude.

You can NOT re-position “fake star” LIGHTS  till you know my EXACT LOCATION. Which I can choose on the last second.

A perceived site is no good and I move on. An unexpected site is suddenly there and I stop for the night. If the adjustments are off by a mile, the error would be too hard NOT FOR ME TO SEE!
Simple Physics of doing the Reality Check!

20150927-light-painting-subjects-0743fb
My drive back out of a location I found in the middle of the NOWHERE. As you can see no one came up that road, driving or walking.

201511206-hitching-to-the-stars-4263halloween

I shot this light painted old car at the end of the road & below, this mine shaft Full Moon rising, light painting shot.

20151120-emerging-moon-4207-4afb

Since I work alone a lot, how the heck would some government know when and where to set up the “Fake Roof of a Flat Earth”
Since the USA government has threatened to kill me for being a “whistle blower”, why would they let me expose the “fake roof” or so SPEND BILLIONS to make me believe I was doing some thing normal if they would rather I was dead.

Specially if it cost Millions of Dollars to finance the lie and a dollar for a bullet.

I am in the middle of nowhere folks no one would heard the gun and any military sniper worth a shit can drop a person 1000 yards away, so they don’t even have to warn me or get close enough to talk to me.

Just kill me and walk away the buzzards and ants will take care of the body.

20151120-emerging-moon-4862weird-extraterriscfb

Shot this photo on the road out, for the “other world” effects I would later add. Yeah, a secret society would spend BILLIONS TRACKING ME….

 

yosemite-star-trails

Yosemite Star trails, took this in the evening, red glow on trees is from the campfire, and processed it in the morning for my friends who’s land it was I stayed with. No government got in there. Southwestern direction. Notice curve flattens out as it moves to the right or north side of the sphere.

Why waste the time. The USA or Secret Society would kill me. Not spend Billions of dollars tracking me across thousands of miles in case I decided to shot a star trails photograph and be ready on a moments notice. Nor do they any reason to access my camera & computer to do the files manually to make it seem it I made it happen, because I am known to do the stars trails & panos in the field on my laptop. Yeah, I get up check my cameras & put the cards, load the frames and during breakfast look at me results.

vof-eclipse-20150927-salesprintfb

Southern Nevada, I shot this and 3 days later was north of Mono Lake, north movement of 400-500 miles folks in a straight line. And possible 200+ miles westward direction as the crow flies. I was on the road for 10 days & 1700 miles.

20160611black-white-ebook-9355fb

Mono lake a few days after the Super Moon Eclipse shot.

A Eclipse that I would personally talk to 40 or more people, all levels of photographers about what they shot in whatever part of the WORLD they were in. Flat earth debunked again, millions of places on the planet, a 1/4 to 1/2 of the saw AND SHOT the same types of images… can’t be done on a “Flat Earth”, your violate Parallax laws.

I also shot with Sierra Club Camera Camera Committee in Southern California, we went out with 10-20 members doing shooting night skies. You going to tell me some secret group came changed 20 different MAKES & MODELS of cameras to every different perspective of each camera in a single night and not a one of many who like me nap at our cameras never noticed a mistake.

I shoot 2 cameras or more some times at the same time, 2 different views. Yeah right, my Australian shooting partner for over 2 years would jump in the night  if a mouse broke a leaf near his tent. I had a snoring problem for a while.

I had to put my tent 20 ft or more from him. Many a night in the desert he never slept good, coyotes would howl on the distant hills. They got mean ass snakes in Australia, Black Mombas. It will scare you good to see a snake come from 20 ft away to get after you.
Sorry “FLAT EARTH PEOPLE” your story can NOT BE PROVEN!
Even if all star trails photos looked like my north star point camera shots you still lose out to parallax, the center can’t be over the same place on a flat earth, because a 100 miles of travel would move you out of line and you would have an oval light shape like one sees looking at a spinning record and shining a light on it from the side. You would NEVER HAVE THE SOUTH BENDING STARS.

jalama-beach-sunset-1-_fb

Pacific coast line, Jamala Beach.

If you have ever been on a boat at sea, you know that the ship does not go off in a straight line till so tiny you can’t see it. If you have a powerful enough telescope or camera, you will see the hull get lower and lower til you can’t see it. It has gone below the horizon.  And disappears below the horizon regardless of the power of your scope/lens. Again NO FLAT EARTH CAN DO THAT. I have a few thousand miles on oceans liners, and a few thousand more on private boats. Again the cost of “fake horizons” would be too much to continue for any length of time when you are talking of millions of boats and ships on the waters of the planet every day.
So if I alone have shot in so many places, the same kind of star trails and star shots, and shooting stars. Plus panoramas and landscape shots from 10,000 to 14,000 ft in elevation of horizons and every time I get what I see.

20150809-bristlecone-shooting-starspecialfb

Bristlecone Pine forest, 11,000 ft elevation, shooting star & “Famous dead Bristlecone trees”. I with a group of 20 photographers, and we had maybe another 20-30 photographers coming and going through the as we did our light painting of these trees.

20150808-bristlecone-nightshoot-7138dreambigfb

Same night opposite side and the camera on the other side getting the shooting stars. Milky Way, Southern view.
Like this Inspirational poster, 11,000 feet up and several hundred miles of view.

trona-me-in-actionfb
Or this photo of myself taken because of the curve of this dry lake bed was plain to me and I loved it! My camera saw what I saw, not A BENT $2000 LENS photo. Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 “L” has a very low lens distortion of ANY LENS ON THE MARKET! “L” is PROFESSIONAL QUALITY!

2016-trona-back

I am just doing a post here folks to let you all know what I do and offer.
Vanderhoof Photography is a one-person mobile business.
I have no home office.
I am international traveling, and a Jack-of-ALL-TRADES.
I do photography, in a variety of styles, photojournalism, product, portrait and my favorites landscape & night photography, light painting.
As a light painting night photographer, I have a deeper understanding in lighting moods than most daylight photographers.

As a Photo Editor of 6 weekly newspapers for 9 years, I have an eye for what sells as well whether hard news or advertising.
Since my product to invent was at age 4 years old and that item in 1962 became a Fad for over 10 years, I have a long history of making sales and knowing market direction.

1967 news article punch card wreath

1967 news article on the punch card wreath

I have background in writing and my best piece of writing was the single page letter that outlined the creation of the International Space Station. A long story but NASA has not tried to challenge me story.
It is a previous blog post. Written in 1983, I turned the NASA and world around in about 4 months.
In 1975, I wrote a high school paper on Karen Silkwood, in 1983 Karen Silkwood was featured in a major motion picture as the title & about the nuclear industry bad behavior, just as I had pointed out in my High school report.

karen-silkwood

Cut & Paste from Wiki: ”

Karen Gay Silkwood (February 19, 1946 – November 13, 1974) was an American chemical technician and labor union activist known for raising concerns about corporate practices related to health and safety of workers in a nuclear facility. Her mysterious death received extensive coverage and was the subject of a victorious lawsuit against chemical company Kerr-McGee. Silkwood was portrayed by Meryl Streep in Mike Nichols‘ 1983 Academy Award-nominated film Silkwood.

She worked at the Kerr-McGee Cimarron Fuel Fabrication Site plant near Crescent, Oklahoma, United States. Silkwood’s job was making plutonium pellets for nuclear reactor fuel rods. This plant experienced theft of plutonium by workers during this era. She joined the union and became an activist on behalf of issues of health and safety at the plant as a member of the union’s negotiating team, the first woman to have that position at Kerr-McGee. In the summer of 1974, she testified to the Atomic Energy Commission about her concerns.

For three days in November, she was found to have plutonium contamination on her person and in her home. That month, while driving to meet with David Burnham, a New York Times journalist, and Steve Wodka, an official of her union’s national office, she died in a car crash under unclear circumstances.

My 1st front page photo as a freelance photographer, yes a night shot. The shot of Steve hanging on a rope is AM…

explosion-front-page-apr-6-1976fb

I have background in graphic design, painting with oils & acrylics and studying the “Old Masters”, plus my 1st darkroom was at age 16 years old. 1974. In 1976 I had my 1st front page freelance photo. Yes, it was a night shot too.

In 1983, a roommate asked a question, that lead to my creating the International Space Station. That story is also in a previous blog post
In 1988, the newspaper I worked for held the company wide meeting  and laughed at me for suggesting that the internet & computer graphics was something to think about getting into. 1992, I was helping install computers networks & teaching the use of modems & Mac computers based on my home screen printing business for that SAME newspaper publisher.
In 1993-94, I released 3 postcards, that were still on sale in 2007. I had only a “Photo byline” so the company had to be making money off the postcards to still be selling all 3 postcards 14 years later.

I have something over 50 different job titles in 7 fields that I have collected pay in or done as a personal business.
There is not too many things you want photographed, I haven’t got a clue of what the customer wants.
I DO NOT do weddings, birthdays, politician parties/celebrations/events or religious ceremonies, unless I want to cover the photojournalism story for myself. I don’t care about big egotistical people.
I do cover hard factual evidence photojournalism.
I have a Spiritual mark that is the highest mark on the planet as it is given by a God, not a human. Bible Revelation 2:17.This is from a Study Bible, red ink means it is Jesus Christ spoken words and can NOT CHANGE FROM ONE BIBLE TO THE NEXT. Note the plural on churches, the lack of Who’s church being named and no human can over ride “Christ’s” decision. It is a true “God Object” no human being can change it & so far no Spiritual being has been able to offer any suggestions of anything else changing it. It will remain on my soul forever.

20160927-rev-2_17-6540fb
I do NOT BELONG TO ANY RELIGION, as this is a requirement of my keeping the Revelations 2:17 mark, which is a spiritual energy mark on my soul. I MUST HEAR ALL SPIRITS that want to talk to me. You must go to the Spiritual Realm to see it or look “with spiritual sight” at my right hand. If I belonged to a religion, it would be necessary to LIE for that religion.
It can’t be a physical object because someone could steal it or I could drop it out of my pocket thereby losing it and the someone could learn the “Unknowable name”.
I have studied advertising since 13 years old and understand what sells and how to sell products, using the principals of psychology, and knowing how the human person looks and sees things to buy.
I offer my services over the internet through a varieties of websites that allow me to make your files available to you from anywhere in the world where internet is available.

I don’t like rich fancy living quarter when I am somewhere on site doing jobs. Simple means and close to ordinary people of than land. Vegetarian foods, with a little fish or fowl. No Beef, Pork or other red meats, I am allergic to it.
I also have a special enjoyment of First Nations, native spiritual rites. Not of tourist performances, but talking to and being around the elders & ancient ways. Because of my spiritual connections these people mean the most to me.

I have and offer a large variety of skills. These different sites are maintained by me as I travel internationally.
