My First Cinemagraphs



























I followed A Russell Brown Tutorial found here.  It was kinda fun spending my Sunday working on this.  I was gonna go to the swap meet with my sisters today, but had to cancel out 'cause I got something funky going on with my left eye.  It's all red and puffy and sore. I freaked out yesterday 'cause it felt like it was gonna pop. My eye doctor gave me some sample Lotemax steroid drops, and I spent all night with a cold compress on it.  I was still worried this morning when I woke up with not much improvement.  But it finally feels better this afternoon.  Whew!  What a relief . . .

Awww thanks Kevin!

Thanks Kat. I wasn't sure I could do it, but I just followed the instructions on the video as far as I could, and voila!

Thanks Tjet!! Try do um, it was fun!

Thanks Shun Wah. Basically it's a video. You need to select where you want to keep movement and where you want frozen. Luckily my Photoshop is the "Extended" version which includes the editing features.

Thanks Michele! I am sooo relieved about my eye too. In my all too dramatic fashion I was fearing the worse.

Hey Jalna! I see you're still doing amazing things with your camera. I was wondering if you would do us the honor by taking our pictures when we wed in July. If you're available. I would like to compensate you for your awesome work just let me know how much you're charging. If you could I would be honored. 7.7.12

Being pretty dumb about photography, I had to look at your pictures a few times to figure out what you did...pretty neat!!

Glad to hear your eye is better...that was pretty weird. Did your doctor say what caused it?

jalna said...

Kinda like you gotta do a double take yah, Betty! My eye thing is weird. I went to the optometrist again this morning. He was concerned because my eyeball was still a little swollen. He's actually a family friend, and he even came by my house this evening to see if there was any improvement. It's still very red, but the swelling is down. And no we don't know what caused it.

Wow, way cool! Happy your eye is OK too.
