I’ve been kind of obsessed with cinemagraphs recently. Cinemagraphs, a creation of photographer Jamie Beck and graphic artist Kevin Burg, are like the cooler, more aesthetically pleasing version of animated gifs - infusing a living moment within an otherwise still photograph. If I was by any stretch of the imagination a photographer (or owned a tripod), I would probably try to create my own. They’re just so breathtaking.
You can see more cinemagraphs here. If you’re interested in making your own, here’s a tutorial.
