Cinemagraphy is far from new, but for some reason it is rarely used in commercial accounts. Many have formed the erroneous opinion that you cannot make cinemagraphs on your own, and the pros take a lot of money.
This is not true. Here is a small list of applications in which you can create a cinemagraphic effect on a photo: make clouds float, ripples appear on the water, hair flow in the wind, etc.
Many people try to create a moving photo from the photo archive on a smartphone. Such material is not suitable for cinemagraphs. Cinemagraphs can be created from both photos and videos, but in both cases, the workpiece must be thought out and filmed in advance.
A moving object in a video must be cyclic in order to get a beautiful “live” photo. For example, a running river, flowing smoke from a fire or flames.
When shooting, you will need a tripod or a homemade device that will not allow the camera to shake during shooting. The video should focus on one subject, especially if the live photo is created for a commercial account.
