A friend of mine showed me an amazing cinemagraphs website a couple of months ago. I was intrigued and really wondered how they did it. Just last week, I was shown how to make a cinemagraph and this is my early version of one.
Recently I had the opportunity to speak to Getty Images Creative director, Anthony Holland Parkin and he spoke about the importance of the moving image in the photography industry. Nowadays, photographers are required to produce both still images as well as the moving image. There are mixed responses from photographers but quite a few are finding new ways to respond to this new trend. Jonas Bendiksen, Magnum photographer, produced a series of still films at last year’s Brazil World Cup. They are really interesting and well worth a watch! You can view them here.
