Custom Cinemagraph – you shoot your own video. Now that you have worked with stock video from another source it’s time to shoot your own video.
Secrets for success:
1. use a tripod to keep the camera still
2. think about how the motion will look when it is LOOPED. A ball that never stops bouncing. Eyes endlessly blinking.
3. plan ahead for the movement you want to preserve as well as the movement that you will freeze. Example: people walking is reflected in a window. Consider freezing the walkers so all you see is their moving reflection.
4. shoot MORE VIDEO than you will need. You can always delete.
