Tidal Warp - Tidal Warp is a compilation of 427 photographs made over an eight-hour rise of the tide. Using techniques and concepts taken from time-lapse and streak imaging, it creates a “real image graph" of the tide, sunset and light falloff over time. Believed to be the first of its type, this technique can be used to provide data whilst giving the viewer a clear indication of the subject photographed. Being digitally photographed, ten pixel columns from each image were chronologically assembled. Prior to shooting, calculations ensured the correct number of images were taken to produce an image with correct proportions.
