After researching in to different kind of online portfolios I have found a varied amount of portfolios I like.
Tim Lahan’s portfolio is random yet interesting. It has several different images of his work which include GIF’s and also still images. Most of his work seems to have been created on programmes such as Photoshop, which seems to be his main interest. This also relates to my personality and interest and I also enjoy creating images digitally and I will be working my online portfolio towards this kind of technique.
Stereo Creative’s portfolio on the other hand involved more photography with captions placed over the top, more of an advertisement portfolilo. This particular screen shot of the website shows an advertisement for the highly rated film/TV series ‘This is England ’86’. I like this kind of work because it takes a lot more time planning photography shoots to then also editing the images afterwards. The difference between the two of the portfolio’s vary greatly. Each creator can be stronger in different subjects, for example, Tim Lahan may be better at graphic work than Stereo Creative, whereas Stereo Creative could be better at photography and advertisement skills. Both of the portfolios are creative and unique in different ways, it’s just down to personal preference and what the audience would want to see.
Today I created my very own online portfolio and the website it has been created on is called format. I added several images of my work I created previously in my spare time as 3d graphics has a big impact on my life. The main too studies I enjouy is 3D graphics and film making.
Here are the three images I have inserted in to my new online port folio. The first one consists of 3 dimensional text with a door attached to it. I created this in cinema 4D back in 2013 when I was experimenting with different techniques and tools on cinema 4D.
The second image consists of three snooker spheres which look as if they are in a photo studio by looking at the reflection on them. This was created by making the surroundings out of ‘planes’ and adding illumination on them so they can be reflected off each ball. This was also created in Cinema 4D and photoshop and so is the next image.
The third image is a 2D image of Manchester but I made it look 3D by duplicating the image on two different planes, on at the bottom for the floor and one at a 45 degree angle. The image has been captured from the video I made which consists of several balls falling from the sky and crashing on to the wet floor, to then all roll away in different ways in the surrounding to give it more of a dynamic look.
