Cinemagraph of Sydney\’s Opera House and Harbour Bridge


When I first learnt about cinemagraph I though it was cool idea. I didn\’t learn straight away but wait a year before actually get my hand around to learn to do it properly. And the software issue to do it right in the first place.

You could do it with Photoshop and there is tutorial online to share this process. That\’s how I\’ve learnt it. And you need Photoshop to get the file into animation for viewing on the web. So this will loop forever. A photo that moves, a concept that most photographer right now are getting into. In another word, motion or video. That\’s two word right?

It easy to learn how to do it. Mostly software and if you own Photoshop you could do it there. I was experiment with After Effects as well and with some footage it was better to do in After Effects. I share some of it later.

If you have a look at yesterday post, I had a HDR photo up with an average sunset. This was one of those magical sunset that other photographers just dream of. And I have it in motion for ever. Too bad I have lost the original raw capture. Damn hard-drive, can\’t the manufacturers make things to last.

I'm a freelance makeup artist from Sydney, Australia. If you hang around creative people long enough you well get the bug to create as well. So now I am into photography, timelapse photography and maybe video/film later.
