Amazing Photo Animations
I love the way creative photographers are broadening the boundaries of photography, and blurring the area between stills and motion. One of the neatest collections of photo animations I've ever seen comes courtesy of Kevin Parry. He's a music video director, and he combines stills and video into awesome animated gifs that appear to slingshot the camera around large structures like San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and Transamerica Building. It's a simple yet ingenious combination of zooms, camera movements and stills to create an effect unlike anything else I’ve ever seen. Check out Parry's music video for Kalle Matson, shot by Andrea Nesbitt, and a bunch of other animated gifs at the Colossal blog.
