Moving Portraits Really Bring A Third Dimension To Any Photo
Derek Heisler is always pushing the boundaries with his work. I truly admire that about that about him.
Recently, he created this moving portrait that really caught my eye and I just had to know more.
I'll let him explain:
Let me present a Moving Portrait.
A little different from a cinemagraph. Where a cinemagraph is a video that's masked to show small movement; a moving portrait is originally a still image that is then broken up and the camera is moved much like Disney's Multi-plane camera.
Here there are 3 objects, the back wall, the counter and the subject himself. What makes a great moving portrait? A great shot, a smooth camera movement in 3D space and great environmental audio that takes you there.
Pop in those headphones and turn on the audio. Enjoy!
I can't wait to see him do more, and I can't wait to see what this inspired in others! Seeing the movement replicate a how it would look in real life is a real trip. Especially when the starting photo is cool to begin with.
