Creating a Cinemagraph

Quite recently a new rage of photography has taken off on the internet. With this type of photography, one can create a still image that moves! This type of image is called a cinemagraph. I have been intrigued by these types of photos for some time and I finally decided to try my hand at it. I found a great tutorial at psd.tuts+.com. This tutorial was very informative and easy to understand so if anyone is interested in creating their own I highly suggest watching this tutorial!

For my cinemagraph I decided to use the pages of a book. I love reading so this seemed like a great way to put a little bit of me into this new type of photography. The key to cinemagraph’s is to have a tripod so the camera can capture the image exactly as it needs to be without any outside movements. It is important to pick a subject that has a continuous motion that can be re-looped through the image over and over.
