I’ve been researching and looking into some new photo techniques to improve my photography, I’d like to start taking more night time photos and realized I need a tripod. Also I’ve been interested in creating Cinemagraphs or .gif images, ones that bring the photo to life. I’ve seen some really cool ones on the web I think it’d be cool to learn. So I looked at some tutorials and messed around in Photoshop and figured out how to make gifs and breathe life into a plain photo. Below are just some of my sample of what a Cinemagraph is, the smoothness in transition is what make a Cinemagrap look great. Now that I know how to do it in photoshop, I’ll be looking for more photo opportunities on my next shoot.
Here are some other great Cinemagraphs that inspired me:
