Cinemagraphs is just so cool. I remember like 10 years ago when I started to take interest in webdesign and internet. I was impressed by animated GIF´s. But the first excitement soon dropped.
Almost no web designer around the world uses GIF`s and they don´t really fill any functions. But a creative duo took them to a completely new artistic and inspired direction.
Using high speed photography and animating masked sections of the images, Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg have given rise to a new trend in the photography field – That is Cinemagraphs.
A Cinemagraph is an image that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly.
More than your basic animated image, these not-so still life captures have elements within the photograph that are set in motion. Have a look through some of the images from the gallery of the two innovative minds that began this visually intriguing art form.
On their site Cinemagraphs, you can view many more amazing stuff that not is gathered here. So sit back and enjoy…
