Wikipedia tells me that these beauties are created by taking a series of photographs or video recording and, "using image editing software, compositing the photographs or video frames into a seamless loop of sequential frames." This is sentence I could possibly understand one day if someone went over it with me very slowly.
In the meantime, I'll just sit here, mouth agape, staring at the teapot.
I first discovered cinemagraphs on some photography blog that linked me to Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg's website, a pair of photographers who first coined the term for the moving picture art form in early 2011. When I found out that Kelly Framel, of The Glamourai, was going to be shot by them for her Kelly Wearstler collection campaign in Malibu, I hoped and hoped that some cinemagraphs would come out of the extravaganza.
And DEAR LORD, I was right.
Are you joking me right now?!
Will someone please figure out what that sentence up there means and make a cinemagraph of ME?
