The COOPH Team are back and this time, they're bringing images to life by introducing repetitive movement to create something known as a cinemagraph. 

Cinemagraphs are created by combining still images with one small, repetitive movement that brings the image to life. This could be snow falling, wind blowing through the image or perhaps traffic moving through the shot. 

"They are sure to make your future social media posts stand out from the crowd!" says the COOPH Team. 

6 ideas are shared in the above video but there are tonnes of creative cinemagraph themes you can try out for yourself. Plus, the team also show you the editing process involved in making a cinemagraph.

The 6 topics the COOPH Team play around with are: The Wind, Ghost Swings, Fluid Movement, Reflections, Spinning Backgrounds and Shadow Play. 

Why not have a go at mastering the technique yourself? We also have a cool tutorial on creating unusual compositions and a fun tutorial on using mirrors in your photos, both from the creative COOPH Team.
