32 Cinemagraphs (Still Photos) You Should See

We previously introduced Cinemagraph: 28 Still Photos With Subtle Motion. A year has passed since then, and the collection on the internet has inevitably grown in size. This calls for a second part, which gave birth to this post: 32 more high-quality and intriguing cinemagraphs for your inspiration. These animated GIFs with minor and/or repeated movements occurring in still photos have captured the imagination of more and more photographers, challenging them to try their hand at reinventing how we view still photos.

In fact, this new technique of ‘cinemagraphy’ was only discovered by U.S. photographers, Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck as recently as early 2011. Take this opportunity to check out these pioneering cinemagraphs and perhaps even create your very own!
