First Crack at a Cinemagraph

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was an idea pointed out by ¬†Joe, which she got from http://cinemagraphs.com/. I got curious enough and locked down the workflow which is pretty damn easy if you know your Photoshop and have a decent video recorder. For this one, I used my Leica Dlux 5. It’s not as sharp as I wanted it to be because I was using man’s very first tripod: My Arms. So yeah, next time I will use a tripod. My mistake was getting too hyped up that I wanted to try this out right away without thinking.

Still looks great though. Some things I learned:

1. Observe your subject before doing anything.

2. Compose and recompose.

3. Observe the action and find something “loopable”.

4. Use a tripod.

5. Try, try again!
