We covered some of Kevin Burg & Jamie Becks cinemagraphs last year and loved them so much we thought we should bring you some more. While cinemagraphs themselves have been around for a while, Kevin & Jamie create unique animated GIFs which raise the bar on what has come before. These recent examples display a love for autumn scenery and vintage style.[see_also]
For those unfamiliar with how cinemagraphs work, here is a quote from Wikipedia
They are commonly produced by taking a series of photographs or a video recording, and, using image editing software, compositing the photographs or the video frames into a seamless loop of sequential frames, often using the animated GIF file format in such a manner that motion in part of the subject between exposures (for example, a person’s dangling leg) is perceived as a repeating or continued motion, in contrast with the stillness of the rest of the image.
