These Are the First Virtual Reality Cinemagraphs

Back in 2011, photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck helped coin and popularize the "cinemagraph," an animated GIF showing a mostly static photo with certain elements moving and looping.

Now, as the world of virtual reality is starting to take off in a big way, photographer Eran Amir is taking the cinemagraph to a new dimension: 3D. He has created a series of virtual reality cinemagraphs, which you can watch in the 2.5-minute video above.

Glimpses of People and Places in Monrovia, Captured Through Cinemagraphs

Monrovia is the capital of Liberia, the West African country that was founded by the United States and settled in the 1800s by mostly freed slaves (hence its name, which means "land of freedom").

When French photographer Francois Beaurain visited the city in early 2014, he spent five months wandering the streets and documenting this land that he previously knew nothing about. He then created a series of cinemagraphs -- or "moving photos" -- that offer a glimpse into what Monrovia is like.

Mesmerizing Cinemagraphs Capture The Monotony of ‘Routine’

How do you capture 'routine' on camera? That was the question that talented cinemagraph creator Julien Douvier (featured before here and here) was asking himself late last year. The answer, when it struck him, was simple: nothing is perhaps more routine than our early morning walk to work.

So he set about capturing that in the only way he knew how: photography with a touch of motion -- or videography with a touch of stillness -- in order words, cinemagraphs.

The Entrancing Cinemagraph Creations of Julien Douvier

The cinemagraph genre is one of the most exciting to follow because, unlike almost every other type of "photography" (in quotes since you they aren't photos in the traditional sense of the word), it's not yet oversaturated with phenomenal work.

Almost everywhere you turn you'll find a great street photographer, or landscape photographer, or fine art photographer. But when you stumble across a master at creating cinemagraphs, he or she is one of only a handful. Julien Douvier is one such photographer.

How Sigma Could Make the fp Great

I have always admired Sigma. It wasn’t regarded in the same league as it is today for its lenses until the Art series came out, but Sigma’s digital cameras have always been singular in design and purpose. The family-owned company has never been afraid to try something new, and honestly, that’s something we need to see a lot more of in the photography world.
