Sup? I'm a dude. I like kpop, and stuff. For the purpose of this blog, let's just leave it at that.
Things I am not:
- A 35-year-old sexual predator (not on the weekdays, anyway)
- A girl named Brandi
- A guy named Brandon
- A member of the Wu-Tang Clan
Sometimes I make GIFs, sometimes I scan things, sometimes I edit things, and sometimes I put pictures into galleries at:
99.9% T-ara images, even though I like many groups.
Feel free to ask me things and I shall answer things, with either too much detail or too much sarcasm.
No, sorry, I don’t have any tutorials up (yet?).
No pls, let me try to make this right. Here, a Christina Aguilera gif just for you:
Don’t say I didn’t do everything I could to salvage this relationship.
Thanks! That’s awesome. Here’s one equally fabulous over the top emoticon to really drive home how glad I am that you like them: ☆*･゜ﾟ･*\(^O^)/*･゜ﾟ･*☆
That said, I get these questions often, so I hope you won’t think I’m a jerk for sending you on a fun journey through some previous asks where I touched on this kind of stuff.
Almost missed this…Sure, I’ll give it a shot…
I don’t really follow the boy bands…there are a few choice songs from boy groups I used to listen to, but since I don’t follow them, I don’t keep up with the music much and usually don’t hear their stuff…
As far as an ideal type…I feel like I should clarify that I’m a (straight) male, so…I don’t…have one? I’m not sure that’s a thing, haha…
Why would you put me through that…I have a terrible memory how am I even gonna… I’ll randomly pick out the ones that come to mind:
Lies 2013 gets the obvious nod for first, and I’m really loving these Do You Know Me performances, since for the first time in a while they seem like they’re legitimately having fun out there. I guess most of the credit for that goes to the fun stages/choreography, but yeah, I’m enjoying it. There are probably a few good ones I missed, but I’d basically be picking based on how good they looked in the outfits at that point…
I kinda sorta hate you for this…I tried my best, but the list might change in a few minutes so let me just post it before I keep adjusting it:
I get this and other similar questions a lot, so check out this previous ask and all the other asks I linked in that one. (Yes, I am purposely linking the latest one to make the rabbit hole deeper and deeper)
I can’t say enough times that the source video is everything. Aside from that, sometimes it depends on what’s going on in the video. For example, performance stages with a ton of colorful lights and flashing set pieces might make for some crappy gifs (especially when they flash those damn blue and red lights in their faces, man, I hate that)—but a nice stage with some consistent lighting and a steady camera man can do wonders.
The best tips I can give are really incredibly basic and have less to do with special techniques and more to do with being selective and picking the right scenes. I don’t use heavy topaz settings (on sets that I actually even use topaz), and the effects I apply in photoshop are usually pretty subtle and are mostly personal preference.
I’m still experimenting with stuff myself, and like I’ve said a few times before I hope to someday get a tutorial up so I can just address all these questions in one shot…but that’s in the possibly distant future. SOON™
and yes, anon who literally just asked me this same question as I was typing, you can read this answer and pretend it was for you :D
