Cinemagraphs

Cinemagraph has taken its popularity since the first use of such technique by U.S. based photographers, Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck in 2011. The two creatives have used this technique to animate their fashion photographs.

I use cinemagraph to make my photographs more lively and to create attention using this visual medium on a specific subject. Sometimes, still images can be quite boring and not enticing enough to attract the target audience. So a little bit of animation in a still image can be quite eye catching. It is a great marketing tool.

I am constantly exploring and experimenting various ways of marketing my photography and videography using interesting visual medium. Eventually, that can be passed on to my client to experience some state of the art visuals to attract their target market and audience.

I started to work on cinemagraph in early May 2016. All that matters most are the sort of images and footages required to make a good quality and interesting cinemagraph. That part is very much focussed on the talent and artistic eyes of the photographer.

When creating a cinemagraph, one must have an eye as to what is the subject that should be moving and what should be kept still. A subtle movement of a subject in a still image can create quite an attention impact. I have worked with a number of subjects including nature such as waterfall, boat cruise in the wilderness in search of wildlife, street, daily life of a remote village in Borneo. Some are extracted from footage and some are still images.

The following are few examples of my recent work of cinemagraphs on various subjects. Email me to create cinemagraphs for your marketing project.

Mangrove Destruction

The loss of mangrove forest is rampant which makes it among the most threatened habitats in the world. The greatest threat is the rapidly expanding aquaculture industry that clears mangrove forests to convert them into artificial ponds. Chemical is used to kill mangrove trees. Effluents are discharged into the surrounding mangroves killing other lush vegetation in the area and contaminate the rest of the mangrove ecosystem and nearby farmland.

As a consumer, DO WE KNOW WHERE ARE THE SHRIMPS, PRAWNS, FRESHWATER FISH THAT WE ARE CONSUMING COME FROM?

Currently, six villages with 3,000 population, in a poverty stricken district of Pitas in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo are in a devastating state. They depend entirely on the mangrove for their livelihood. An aquaculture project is chewing up their resources. What will be their future?

Together with Sabah Environmental Protection Association (SEPA, http://www.sepa.my), we produced a short documentary for the people of Pitas. This is to communicate their plight to concern parties. What will be their future?
