What is a cinemagraph? Often described as Harry Potter-like moving images, cinemagraphs are a magical hybrid of photography and video. They contain subtle motion that plays in a short, never-ending loop, while the rest of the image remains still. The motion highlights a few seconds from the video, blending it seamlessly into the still photo. Often called a "living photo," cinemagraphs are photos in disguise, they surprise the viewer when they come to life with hints of motion. This makes them a popular choice for advertisers trying to capture and hold their audience’s attention. Many attribute the dawn of the cinemagraph medium to Fashion Week 2011 in New York City. It was then that a pair of fashion photographers — Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg — began crafting and sharing a series of moving photos, which spurred a great deal of curiosity and interest from the fashion community and the media. Without an adequate term to describe these creative images, the fashion photographers decided to coin a new phrase. And just like that, the term “cinemagraph” was born. Mastering hard to use tools like Adobe After Effects, Beck and Burg would meticulously craft these beautiful living photos, sometimes taking up to a week to create just one. I love creating cinemagraphs. I think they are interesting and often mesmerizing to watch.... In this folder you will find all of my cinemagraph creations. Thank you for taking a look!
