The Gaming Cinemagraph

This was a fun challenge. As a photographer and videographer, I was immediately drawn to this art. This is the perfect bridge between video and photo. The video portion of the photo is subtle enough that you almost don’t notice it. It seems to hit most people when he blinks in the video. You can see the reflection of his game in his glasses and that is the only thing that is moving in the whole frame.


I look forward to making more of these cinemagraphs in the future. I want to do more with moving water next. I think getting a shot with someone/something on a river or stream would be a great challenge.

I want to get better at cinemagraphs and do more portraits and fine art works.
