Earlier this week I was talking to a fellow Toronto photographer Lee Nguyen from http://www.leenguyen.ca/ . As we were talking, he introduced me to the world of Cinemagraph's. He showed me, who I think at the moment is the king of Cinemagraphs until I get better ;) , His name is Kevin Burg from http://cinemagraphs.com/ and he has been playing with this format since 2009.
Cinemagraph's if you don't know are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs. Cinemagraph's, which are usually published in an animated GIF format, can give the illusion that the viewer is watching a video. After a quick research of this new format, I decided to give it a try and started to watch as many Cinemagraph youtube videos my fingers could click on. After a few days of watching countless videos I decide to try my first shot when cooking pasta with my long time girlfriend Elaine. The results were great ! I now can't wait until I start to shoot fashion or beauty photography in the studio.
