Cinemagraphs are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs. * Wiki
Several month ago, I came across a blog that featured cinemagraphs. To be honest, some of them creeped me out. Especially the ones that showed a photograph of a person that is blinking their eyes. If you follow me on facebook, you might have seen my excited posts about finally getting to upgrade my camera to a 5D MII. One of the cool things about the camera is that it has the ability to take HD video. In fact, an entire episode of the television show House, was filmed with a 5D MII. Anyway, here is my first attempt at a cinemagraph. You can see it’s a little rough. I hope to do better the next time.
There are several helpful tutorials out there on how to create a cinemagraph, but I chose to follow one from the Bloom Forum. If you aren’t a member there, you should sign up. It’s so much fun!
