Fashion Photography’s New Kick – the Cinemagraph

I was checking out the blog over at I Get a Kick Out of You where I was introduced to the fascinating cinemagraph!  Fashion photography comes alive with this new layered photo, allowing for selective movement within a still image.  It’s really captivating.  Below are some of the best examples I’ve come across so far by inventors Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg.

  2. Wow, this is very cool. A bit disturbing at first that only some parts of the picture are moving, but when you really look at it, it can add something beautiful to a fashion shoot. I especially loved the one standing on stones in the sea, to be able to see the movement of the dress really takes this shot to the next level!
    I think this is what we will see more and more in magazines online or for the tablet-edition. It has already been done, can’t remember be which magazine, but I’ve seen it before. And just imagine this on billboards, would be absolutely captivating!

    • It is cool, isn’t it?! I agree, I think we’ll see it all over the place soon. Digital magazines and billboards would be a great place to use this type of photograph.! Will be keeping my eyes open for it. Let me know where you see them.
