GIFs are cool, but cinemagraphs are cooler! What is a cinemagraph? It uses the concept of a looping GIF but combines still imagery with selective parts having movement (video). It is an easy way to capture your audience and leave them feeling intrigued.
Learn the ins and outs of concept, shooting, colour grading and preparing footage to bring into Adobe Photoshop and create a cinemagraph. I have also included test footage ready to open into photoshop so that you can follow the exact steps right along side me until you have footage of your own.
The video file can be found on your Myrtle and Moss account under "my files" once the workshop is purchased.
Please note, cinemagraphs are created using video files instead of images and might be a bit of a learning curve for you.

Basic video knowledge is beneficial however I do lightly cover shooting the video footage needed to create a cinemagraph, stabilization in Premiere as well as colour grading in Premiere Pro and in Lightroom. I help you with the basics in an approachable way where minimal experience or knowledge is needed.
