Thanks to Matt Richardson’s post on MAKE, I’m fascinated by cinemagraphs, which are still images containing a little bit of looping motion. (If you’re familar with animated GIFs, this is something similar, but a bit more refined.)
NYC-based photographers Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg are doing absolutely stunning work with cinemagraphs in fashion photography. It’s amazing how much more poignancy an image takes on with just a little movement. Do head over to Jamie’s Tumblr, where you’ll see lots more interesting cinemagraphs.
If you’re interested in learning to make your own cinemagraphs, there’s this tutorial at Photojojo.
