I am curious what exactly a cinemagraph is. It looks just like a gif. Is there something different about it?
Okay. Well. Prepared to be pelted with info about cinemagraphs, anon.
As far as I know, the term "cinemagraph" was first coined by a pair of photographers, Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, about a decade ago. Their work is incredible! (See below for one of my favorite examples of theirs or click the link!) Stuff my beginner self could only dream of creating!
As far as what they are - "a still photograph that contains an element of movement looped seamlessly to create a never ending moment".
And you create that by masking off a portion of the piece so that only a small amount of movement is allowed. There are ways to do this with video to a still, or ways of doing it from still with special effects to add movement. I have been making mine into gifs purely because of Tumblr's issue with video and preference for gifs. But you do lose quite a bit of quality when you make a moving image into a gif (as I'm sure so many of you know).
Some people use html5 video for theirs because you can usually get a smaller file size/better quality, but I haven't really explored that avenue yet. I am still very much a baby editor for gifs as it is! My medium has always primarily been photography so we're learning together, eh??
I'm loving the experimentation with cinemagraphs because they're quite haunting, and depending on how much/what is moving, they can be very subtle. Thanks for the ask!
