Watch Cinemagraphs for Photographers: Animate your Photos without Learning to Shoot Video

Learn how to animate your photographs without shooting video! Join Erik Kuna for an in-depth look at Plotagraph Pro software to explore the possibilities for adding motion to a still photograph that really grabs the viewer’s attention. Cinemagraphs bridge the gap between still photographs and video and provide a unique method for bringing your photos to life. In this class Erik takes you through the installation and setup of Plotagraph on the desktop and on the iPad, then walks you through a series of demonstrations to show you how to animate water, clouds, smoke, fire, hair, clothing, and more! Erik wraps up the class with a look at key export settings for sharing your animations with the world, and ideas for how to take your cinemagraphs to the next level. watch course

Erik Kuna

Erik is the Vice President of Operations for KelbyOne, and a passionate Rocket Launch photographer. His goal is to create images that help educate people about the space industry, and inspire them to learn more about the beauty of space exploration. His passion was ignited in 2015 by seeing the SpaceX Falcon 9 booster land successfully. He felt like from that moment, he had to be part of documenting and capturing the beauty and inspiration of spaceflight and has never looked back. He has recently pushed his work farther by working with Plotaverse to heighten his images with motion.
