New Kaleidoscopic Images

Many years ago now I made a photo-kaleidoscope as a web project. I always intended to make some actual still images in that vein, but somehow I never got around to it. Now that I’m spending more time (with fewer distractions) in my studio finally I started working on these again. I’m really happy with the first few (with a little luck there will be framed prints at my open studios event this weekend)




Photo kaleidoscope

Well, my class ends today and I’ve put the finishing touches on my photo-kaleidoscope project.

I am really happy with how it turned out, and by this point I’ve done enough of the coding myself that it really feels like I programmed this rather than cobbling together other people’s work.

I took all of your feedback to heart, added some features, slowed things down a little, and did a little polishing in other places. I’m proud to present to you the finished, and working: Charley’s Photography Kaleidoscope

Be warned that it’s a medium-huge file, so it may take a minute or two to load. I think it’s worth the wait though :)

Let me know what you think!!

Critique my flash skills!

Hi all – I’ve been taking this flash course over the summer and it is nearly finished. For my final project I’ve put together a little photographic kaleidoscope, and it is nearly finished. So I want you to have a look and tell me what I could do to improve it before delivering the final version to class on Thursday. Feel free to really lay into me if you feel I deserve it. Some questions to start you off – does the interface make sense? Is it fun to look at? Does it move too quickly? Does it look absurdly dated?

Credit where it’s due – the base kaleidoscope code came from Quasimondo, and my dad helped me out a TON with various coding blunders I had made.

So, here it is – please have a look!
