Okay...so I recently became obsessed with animated gifs and I've been trying to make a few of my own from recent sessions. I can't wait to share them!
The photo that I posted here isn't quite a "gif"...this is something called a Cinemagraph - "A Cinemagraph is an image that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly." Masters of this art are Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg. They have some amazing work on their site Cinemagraph (I especially love the NYC set!) and on their other site, From Me to You.
