Cinemagraphs by Julie Peterson

I have always wanted to try to create a Cinemagraph.  I was able to create 3, but 2 out of the 3 were too big for my blog.  I loved doing this though.  How I created this image was first I selected a subject.  This was the most time consuming part of creating my cinemagraph.   I did it twice I learned from the first time that I need less movement. Once I captured my video I brought it into Photoshop and resized the image.  I then opened the animation too.  I selected my loop.  Then I found a frame that I wanted to use for the still area of the cinemagraph.  I made it a layer, then I added a new mask to the still layer. I painted the mask with black to remove the areas of the still where you want to see movement. I used varying degrees of paint opacity and flow to create a natural appearance.  Then I saved for the web as a .gif.  Below is the end result.  I am in the process of figuring out how to slow down the animation, but have not figured it out yet.  Again this was so fun to learn about.
