Artist Creates Stunning Cinemagraphs of Animals And Nature

Kevin Whipps March 31, 2021 · 1 min read

Have you ever heard of a cinemagraph before? The basic concept is that you take a still image, and then insert a moving image either into part of or all of the picture. It’s similar to an animated GIF, but with a still component to it, and you can make them with programs like Cinemagraph Pro. Said Dagdeviren of Istanbul, Turkey, used that same concept to create these beautiful images here.

I’ve never done anything like this before personally, but seeing these makes me want to dive into the program and see how it works. Imagine what other cool things you could do with this concept!
