We’ve heard plenty about the death of the humble photo as video proliferates. But photography is still far more accessible than video, often because video editing is still so time intensive. Instagram introduced video more than a year ago yet it is still predominantly a platform for sharing still photographs. But all that could be about to change. Last month I shot video as Flixel partnered with Lindsay Adler and saw something very interesting take place that got me thinking – could we be about to usher in a completely new era for photography?
Before I shot the video for Lindsay’s shoot with Flixel, I’d had limited experience with cinemagraphs, mainly seeing them as something fun to create on a mobile platform.
Things have certainly changed.
