(if for any reason you don’t see the photographs in this post, hit refresh to reload!)

Hopefully you can see some improvement compared to the first ones I shared. They’re still relatively rushed – the work of minutes, squeezed in between pasta, playing Peppa Pig and panicking about deadlines, but then what’s new? I find work best wihin parameters, anyway! ?

 Lessons learned:

  • As with all other video media, cinemagraphs just work best in landscape.
  • A tripod is essential; I lost my Guerrilla one for a week until I spied it hanging from the kitchen ceiling! ?
  • You can still use your usual post-production photography software, but it takes a little extra work when blending the movement.

(sneaky little #meandlukeskywalker one – click here for some context!)

The good news is, I’ve already started work on a video tutorial to share the basics. More coming very soon – & did you spot the movement in my Tropicana post?

Have you been inspired to try cinemagraphs yet?
Seen any movement you want to capture?
