Earlier this year I shot a campaign for Crimestoppers with agency DDB Toronto. The campaign aimed to bring awareness to gas theft at the pumps (apparently a big issue!). Below is one of the final photographs, and a behind the scene image from the set.

DAN$E – An Animated GIF Project

Filed under: motion, photography — ryan enn hughes @ 2:40 pm

For the last few weeks I’ve been experimenting with creating Animated GIFs of Ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School. I have a background in Painting, and of late have been interested in exploring avenues that allow me to incorporate aspects of Painting into Photography and Motion Picture work. By manipulating photographs that were initially captured for The 360 Project, where dancers were photographed in 360 degrees using a 48 camera circular rig, it was my aim to create a type of ‘moving painting’, in an Impressionist style. To see the rest of the series DAN$E, visit my Tumblr or GIF section of my website.

Testing – Happy Accidents

Filed under: photography — ryan enn hughes @ 2:50 pm

I’ve been in studio testing for an upcoming project the last few days. The image below is the first shot I took last night during a test after switching camera bodies, and failed to sync exposure settings. The image has nothing to do with the tests that proceded – but I like it as a happy accident.
