Cinemagraphs are still images, yet they have some sort of movements in them to create various effects. Highly used format to create cinemagraphs is GIF, which I'm sure all of you know. I was always aware of this format but never had any interest in it until recently when I came across work of Jeffrey Bennett, a wedding photographer that creates wedding cinemagraphs and does it damn well. You can check out his work here. I particularly love the one that has bride's veil flying in the air while she kisses her groom. Fortunately, I had a chance to shoot something similar recently, my bride had a long veil and it was pretty windy that day. PERFECT. I saw the opportunity when the bride and groom kissed in front of the church. I've took multiple shots in burst mode, and this is what I've got.
Well, obviously this doesn't come any close to Mr. Bennett's work, however, I can see the potential in this form of art, and I will continue to work on them as they can deliver very unique experience to my clients.
