Jaw dropped? Mine did, a few times in fact. Animated gifs to me are to me are the ‘funny‘ ones you find splattered around the web on forum signatures and Tumblr posts. Almost 99% of them are really poor quality edits which make it even more unappealing – I can’t stand the noise. These intricately animated Cinemagraphs by photographer Jamie Beck and motion/web design specialist Kevin Burg are in a league of their own. They’ve managed to use the old animated gif technique in a way in which no one else has, so much detail to each one. Some are a little freaky with the hair moving! You’ll have to look closely to see what’s moving at first, they actually do look like high quality photographs at first. I’m totally blown away by them all, have a gander at the rest on the reverse.
