The first part of today’s workshop consisted of working in After Effects. I really like using AE because I get a satisfying feeling when I have completed a task set by my lecturer.

We zoomed in on the picture and panned right which added a more realistic feel to it.
It took around thirty minutes to complete this task which I am very happy about as I thought it would take longer. I will definitely be trying this again in my spare time with other images and with other transitions.
Here is my final project:
