My New Obsession // Cinemagraphs

The other day Dottie sent me a link. “Hey have you seen these things?? They seem like something you’d like!” She was totally right. There is something oddly transfixing about these images.

OK, so the girl with the wind blowing in her hair is a leeeetle bit cheesy, but hey. They still made me look.

Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg are the pioneers of this technique, essentially a sophisticated .gif, that creates a little world within a photograph. “More than a photo, less than a video.”

I think they’re rather fun. I totally want to try and make one of my own. You can see more here and on Jamie’s Tumblr.
