Join Troy Plota in beautiful Siesta Key for a two part photo shoot on the beach followed by an indoor studio shoot. Images from the shoots will be available for download so you can follow along during the lessons on creating motion art at the end. During each shoot Troy shares the important considerations that pertain to creating images that will look amazing when animated. After the shoots are complete, Troy works through the process of creating three different motion art projects.
