Cinemagraph: Jaw Dropping Sample of Animated Photographs

May 10, 2011 insic 19 Comments

Another level of art in a photography made popular by Jamie Beck. Which bring the photograph to life using good old animated GIFs. Here I listed a jaw dropping example of Animated Photographs. Are these images really moving? or it is because I am addicted to Harry Potter movies.

    Hi Insic,

    Nice compilation of animated images.
    I thought GIFs are gone from the WEB, but these are nice artworks with subtle animation. Luved it.

    Very nice pictures. I like it. It is very unusually.

  • John

    Pity the majority of subject matter seems to be “Hair blowing gently” or “ribbon blowing gently” or “earrings blowing gently”…

    Great execution, narrow subject though.

    It is amazing how one can create stunning animated images using animated .gif files. Though the technology is old, you have made use of it brilliantly.

    I LOVE this art m. Great way to reuse what was considered a dated technology and bring a new air of life to pictures. Just had a go at doing some myself. Would be great to hear what you think

    I really liked some of them. Nicely executed. The only problem is that these can never be printed. It would be really amazing if you could think of a way to print them with the .gif effect.

    “Jaw dropping”. C’mon they are just GIF’s that are all over the web. Not new anymore. Jaw dropping would be a site that doesn’t use terms like “awe inspiring, mind blowing and jaw dropping”. (sensationalism at its lowest)

    I wonder do those electronic picture frames display .gif images? If so, you could display animated pictures on the wall.
