There’s something magical about a still photograph - a captured moment in time - that can simultaneously exist outside the fraction of a second the shutter captures.

La fashion fotographer newyorkese Jamie Beck, in collaborazione con il designer e motion graphic artist Kevin Burg, è l’autrice della serie “cinemagraphs”, gif fotografiche animate a metà strada tra video e foto. Immagini statiche decongelate e trasformate in attimi.

I due artisti hanno iniziato a sperimentare questa tecnica durante la Settimana delle Moda di Milano, a febbraio. Il primo approccio è stato quello di sequenziare le immagini con loop in rapida successione. Nei tentativi successivi hanno invece tentato di catturare un momento nel tempo, isolando parti della fotografia e rendendo il movimento più fluido.

Il risultato finale è unico. Mentre ogni cosa rimane immobile, ogni gesto è fissato nel tempo, piccoli dettagli sfuggono all’immobilità dello scatto. Un soffio di vento sfiora i capelli della modella, la fiamma di una lampione trema silenziosa.

Of course the technology to create GIF’s has been around for decades but I believe its potential for both expression and impact, within the fashion world, has yet to be fully explored. Let me put it this way – film has been around for a century, does that mean that we’ve exhausted the possibilities?

Appreciating the time and energy you put into your site and detailed information
you offer. It’s nice to come across a blog
every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information.
Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including

Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have truly enjoyed surfing around your blog
posts. In any case I will be subscribing to your feed and
I hope you write again soon!

I’m excited to uncover this site. I want to to thank you for ones time for this particularly wonderful read!! I definitely appreciated every little bit of it and I have you book marked to see new things in your blog.

Also visit my page; justanswer.com

It’s impressive that you are getting thoughts from this paragraph as well as from our discussion made at this time.

I like the “picture” of the man reading the paper! I wish the world would stop like that for me to get time to read the paper during my lunchtime too. :)

An amazing collection of gifs, really love these. It looks like not everyone likes the works of some very clever people being brought to one place but I’m really glad you did. I’m not sure quite how I could incorporate one into a wedding shoot as yet but I will certainly get my thinking cap on and possibly one day a work of mine might be up there.

Good job!

Wow this is incredible. I never saw something like this before. Absolutely beautiful..all of them

Hey There. I found your blog the use of msn. This is a very smartly written article. I?ll be sure to bookmark it and come back to read extra of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I will certainly comeback.

This reminds me of the scenes in the Myst games… Its beautiful work, I wish I knew how to do this.

Excellent!

Here’s how I think this was done: lots of photos were taken on a tripod, a master photo was selected and then the photos were masked out to just leave the moving part. That way the master photo is not influenced by the micro changes of light of the multiple exposures. Great idea!

Blaise

It reminds me of how I’ve always thought of photographs in Harry Potter
Of course the portraits were animate and responsive, but I always imagined the movement in the pictures to be more subtle, like this :)

I SIMPLY LOVE IT – LO MAXIMO – O MELHOR
please let us know if we can get the software….in the meantime, i will tween and like it all over the place.
Thanks to the site for letting us get this cool artists

I can’t describe beauty as I see and feel in those pictures. Congratulations for the criative, sensitive and talented work. Just BEAUTIFUL.

omfg imagine the family portraits and desk photographs of the future
it’ll be like harry potter everywhere wooo

God damn! These are really mind blowing! I just love a few of these! Like the barber shop one, the 3rd last and the balcony one!

Absolutely inspiring :)

I loooove the barber shop one and the one with the girl in the mirror, super dark makeup… When she looks over so you make eye contact, I get shivers all down my spine :) These are great and decently artistic!

these are gifs at another level, amazing. must’ve taken quite some time. as everyone else has already said- immediately reminded me of harry potter! xxxxx

@a Nann – that is like saying “why do those morons at the Louvre make these big rooms that simply jack Da Vinci’s work? This is all museums are filled with anymore”.

Yeah, they are defniitely gif-files, but I think these look more cinematic and complicated than pretty much every “normal” gif I’ve ever seen

Simple. the impact is Enormous. Everything you need Is in your backyard alread….y. :) BRILliaNt!

this is awesome.
it is possible if these photos printed in a photo paper?
and still moving?
just wondering.

Creo que lo hace con la tecnica llamada ” time lapse photography ” que basicamente consiste en sacar fotos de una cosa a un intervalo de tiempo regular (ej. 1 foto cada 1 seg) sin mover la camara y despues unirlas todas en un video. El resultado es basicamente el mismo de un video, pero con un efecto distinto. Si te fijas en youtube vas a ver muchas cosas que hacen de ese modo.
Es facil. En este caso, los intervalos de tiempo que usa son mucho menores a un segundo.

Jaime:
Me parece que toman una serie de fotos con una camara que tome “burst” de fotos a mas de 10 fotos por segundos y las editan selectivamente para dejar ver solo una parte que se mueve.

I think they shoot with a very fast camera, at least burst of 10 shoots per second, and then with selective editing they let the part they want to move.

I could not wait and took some photos from my balcony and did one, of course the quality, and artistry, is not even near their masterpieces. I think this is something that has a great future in the world of magazines published in electronic form.

These are simply lovely, taking already striking images and making them memorable. Honestly, not to detract from the tasteful and realistically applicable nature of these images but these images make me wish for technology to produce publications like in the Harry Potter story, to glance at a magazine of a lovely woman and suddenly she blinks, or smiles wryly. What an impact that would make on the advertising market! I think such a thing would revitalize the physical publication market. But I’m off on a tangent; though, if anyone were to make a web magazine, images like these would make such an endeavor well worth perusing and revisiting. Well done indeed! And thank you for sharing your works with us. ;]

I see this type of stuff on tumblr a lot, but these are very artistic and I wish I knew how to do them! A little creepy though.

These are amazing and could be used for educational and instructional purposes to great extent. I would love to know how they are created.

Просто потрясающее решение, застывший миг в продолжении движения, за этим будущее, это уже не короткий отрезок памяти это немного больше

por favor quiero saber como se logra ese efecto si pueden decirme? un tutorial
please let me know how you get that effect if they can tell me? tutorial

they should start making digital picture frames that allow these kinds of images to be hung up in the home..awesome.

why the fuck do you morons make these websites that simply jack everyone elses content? this is all stumbleupon is filled with anymore.f uck your bullshit website

what is your problem? we offer a service, we point out the artists and their works, and talk about their work. instead of writing offensive comments, you can simply avoid visiting our blog.
thank you.

Websites which feature other people’s work, especially those which collect a range of quality offerings are invaluable. The number of sites and the amount of content on the internet is ridiculously vast and I rely on many sites to do the hard work for me and source great examples – especially when it comes to art and design.

Thank you so much for showcasing this innovative approach to photography/videography. I have not seen anything quite like it. I’ve bookmarked your site and will look through to see what else is showcased here!

Perché la gente come te non possono vedere la vita che meraviglia per
un trauma che si vede uno psichiatra

Buenísimo!. Imaginen esto como publicidad grafica en la vía publica, donde la gente parece estar biendo una foto fija y de prónto …. una modelo de mirá a los ojos! …..

very good, it has a very nice resemblance with julian opie works. thank you for you for sharing.

apart from the kudos and all that, a more pressing issue is where can I purchase that magic saucepan and the never ending chocolate?

The GIF “technology” is irrelevant and a bad choice for a file format in most of the cases. Those images were made out of video footage probably in After Effects with tons of masks and rotoscoping.

Still quite inspiring work!

never seen anything like this before, crikes mate they’re fantastic, more encore please.
