Today was another work day, so I decided to do a short animation with AfterEffects. Since I have practically no experience with the program, I wanted to see if I could animate one of my favorite pictures ever. Here is my inspiration for Day #4 of 5-in-5:lakepic

I took this picture when some of my friends and I were coming back from a weekend on Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca (in Peru), and it was breathtaking. I wanted to see if I could deconstruct this picture in AfterEffects and make the water, clouds, and sunlight move, so here is the finished result.  The resolution is relatively low because I wanted to minimize render time and disk space.

    This was really creative. How did you do that? Everything really did move, including the little ship. How nice.
