As I have now finished and handed in my Fine Art Installation work for College, I am happy to share some of my favourite outcomes on my blog!
I started out my project inspired by photographer Jamie Beck and graphic designer Kevin Burg. The couple have become part of the new social networking moving images. Together, they created a Cinemagraph, a continuous moving image. The Cinemagraph is similar to an internet .gif, however, .gifs tend to be all in full bloom and movement. These however, have a replica of a photograph with a touch of reality.
Realising what a lovely opportunity it was to take a short video for this project and convert it into a Cinemagraph, I experimented with a simple candle.
After discovering how to create this wonderful piece of movement on Photoshop, I decided to create a set up of my sister, Hayley in one of our favourite antique patisseries in our local town.
I am very much pleased with my outcome of the teacup. However, now that I have recently bought a new camera and a new lens. I would love to expand on this genre of animation and create something more vast and holds a lot more quality.
(There is so much noise in the Cinemagraphs due to the editing process I used/saved as and a low format of software on my old camera.)
Take a look at Jamie Beck's blog:
Her posts are full of beautiful photographs (mostly film which I adore) and a selection of Cinemagraphs!
