Happy New Year 2021


Done in Photoshop, this cinemagraph was exported as GIF so that it can be embedded and loops on any website. If exported as mp4, a video file, it can be displayed on Instagram.

Why not start the new year with a new skill? I though long and hard about what that might be without breaking the bank.

In the end, it was something as simple as looking through youTube and figuring out what I have in terms of resources.

Like many of you, I have a lot of time on my hands although I much prefer to be out taking pictures than sitting in front of a computer.

In case I never mentioned it, I’m currently teaching photography at high school.  Engagement has been tough and that’s probably why I decided to learn this technique of making a cinemagraph.

Feel free to comment. It’s my first attempt and I’m sure my Photoshop work needs refining. It’s not my strongest suite but that’s why learning is often described as life-long.
