Tonight my friend introduced me to a new iPhone app called Cinemagram. Similar to Instagram in interface, Cinemagram allows you to mix still photos with video. And the best part—it’s free.
I have been thinking about how I could share video and this app is the perfect solution. In the example below, I started with a well lit area that had a clearly definable area of movement. I filmed the entire flush and then chose the three second portion that I wanted to feature.
Created with cinemagr.am
Once I had my clip, I used an iPhone stylus to draw a mask over the area of motion that I wanted to highlight. There are several filters that you can add after to change the look of your entire GIF (basically a GIF for the iPhone). They are similar to the filters on Instagram.
When your done, you can post your GIF on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr all with a tap on the screen.
This app hasn’t been around long and I have already seen some amazing work. I highly recommend checking this app out; it is the future of mobile photography.
