I have actually seen some of these types of “photo” over the last few years. When I did I thought it was video in either stop-motion or super slow motion clip. Come to find out it’s a process called Still Photo Animation. There are graphic designers and photographers producing this type of work on a commercial and consumer level all around. The video below features Joe Fellows as he shows and describes the software and techniques he uses when creating his animated photos.
This type of technique could be a great option to add to your portfolio as a photographer if you’re looking for a way to stand out from your competition. It does take some time, but could boost sales and prices for signature work by several hundred dollars. As you watch this video think of that comment below on how you’d add this to your photography services.
