Frozen In Time

I recently stumbled upon this amazing photographer who does animated gif images. I've seen similar approaches before but this totally blew my mind. So beautiful! Make sure to check out this link. I gave it a try myself today. This is my friend at a cafe. I'm certainly gonna do more of those.

update:
I did two more of those today. Gotta find a way to keep the file sizes a bit smaller. The jumping pic was impossible to keep small cause the whole background was moving. So it ended up being over 1MB. It's super fun creating those pics. It requires a lot of thinking.

Amazing! This reminds me of the Harry Potter´s moving photographs!
I just wish GIFs had better quality. Totally trying this soon!

Thanks for sharing that link, clever stuff! Do you take a high quality video and then mask out the parts you don't want to be animated?
