A very short poem about how I feel right now:
I have the perfect collection of coffee table books
typography, photography, psychology
now all I need to find is the coffee table
and even, perhaps, just maybe, a home.

Since I’ve moved back to Sydney, I haven’t been able to find a perfect yoga class. I was feeling lethargic, out of shape and unmotivated.
Out of habit, I subscribed to Yoga Journal as soon as I had a steady address. Just doing that little thing made a huge difference to my home practice.
As I read, I practiced. And after I was done with the magazine, I still kept it around as a reminder to myself.
Surround yourself with the things you love and you want to do more often. In that same frame of mind, go around your house and omit things you feel no longer serve you.
I know as a fact that if I buy a pack of ice cream, I will justify eating one a day. So I choose not to buy them.
It’s the little things like this that make up a life.

This was an easy stop motion video because I didn’t use a tripod, the summer storyline was simple but effective and it came together in an hour. Here’s how:
Most of the images were shot when I was bumping around in a car or on a beach. It was a great project to have on a short vacation.
Firstly, I set my camera to continuous shooting. Google your camera brand and type with “user manual” and figure out how to do this, if you don’t already know how to.
I put all the images into Lightroom and then did a batch export at something like 900 px wide. There was a lot of heavy vignetting and vibrance in Lightroom, cause hey, that’s how I roll.
That stopped Final Cut Pro from crashing when I added all the images. Even then, I found that I had to 50 images at a time otherwise my mac would freeze up. Consider yourself warned.
I played around with the image duration and settled on a twentieth of a second for each still. To edit image durations in Final Cut go to:
Final Cut Pro > User Preferences > Editing. Look out for the “Still duration field” and have a play around with what looks best for you.
I then played around with music options and settled on a beauty by LadyHawke. To add music, just drag and drop into the timeline.
Final Cut Pro has some great title options so I normally spend an hour going through them. I then exported the final product to Vimeo.
This would be a great, simple, easy project if you’re going to have an interesting day or week trip. Let me know how you go!

“Jobs has a great native sense of design and a knack for hiring geniuses, but above all, what he has is a willingness to be a pain in the neck about what matters most to him.”
