Creating a Composite Action Sequence

Learn how to create a composite action sequence with Corey Rich.


AdoramaTV presents Getting the Shot with Corey Rich. 

Still photography is all about capturing that decisive storytelling moment. Certain situations, however, beg to show the whole sequence or progression of movement. The question becomes: can you tell that whole story in a single frame?

In this Tech Tip, Corey talks about the creative process behind building a composite action sequence to create a much more interesting and powerful storytelling still. While standing neck-deep in the Mediterranean Sea on the coast of Mallorca, Corey racks his brain to come up with an interesting way to show the drama and power of what professional climber Chris Sharma is doing as he climbs one of the hardest rock climbs in the world, using no rope, 60 feet above the sea.

The solution is to use all the tools available to him, from his Nikon camera equipped with a 17-35mm lens, to working in Photoshop in the aftermath to build the actual composite. As Corey says, when you embrace technology, the only limits are what you can dream up.
