So today what I have are samples of animated GIF artwork but they are not the regular GIF we use on websites. These are beautiful twist from somehow nasty animated Gif artworks with the use of high quality photos from modern photography, and the pioneer, Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg called it – Cinemagraph.
Click the images and be amazed.
The review for these cinemagraph is pretty diverse. Some praised it as the revolution of Gif animation, some criticized it as an old form of animated Gif artwork with a new name. In either way, more photographers found cinemagraph interesting and made their first attempt. Will it become the next big thing of photography and Gif animation? I will leave this for you to judge.
