Cinemagraphs are made by taking a series of photographs or a video recording, and, using image editing software, compositing the photographs or the video frames into a seamless loop of sequential frames. This is done such that motion in part of the subject between exposures (for example, a person’s dangling leg) is perceived as a repeating or continued motion, in contrast with the stillness of the rest of the image.
So far everything wikipedia tells us about this new medium. It’s not much, and partially that is because it’s such a difficult word… One of the replies I often get when I tell people what I do is: Cinema-what? It’s not something we should try to explain, you just have to see for your self I guess…
So after filming for about 12 years and taking pictures since I was able to hold a camera, cinemagraphs are my new love. It’s something magically…when done right, you just keep looking at it, expecting something more to happen. I get bored easily but this medium definitely does the trick for me.
So I’m guessing you’re reading this blog because for some reason you are also interested in cinemagraphs, or living photos as some people call it. This place will be a mix of self made work, for clients and portfolio but I also want this to be a place where you get inspired! Many different artists from all over the globe are experimenting with cinemagraphs at the moment. Here we will feature their greatest work.
