So my aim during our project of making a gif was to create a self portrait gif. However as i hadn’t created a gif before i decided to experiment with a couple of ideas which weren’t portrait related. We used photoshop and dragon frame to create our first two ideas which are shown below.
After a few successful practice runs of making a gif i started to turn my attention towards ideas and inspiration of what i wanted my portrait gif to resemble and look like. I was very interested in being able to create both a portrait gif and a cinemagraph.
My first idea was to create a kind of flip book idea as an animated gif which would switch between parts of three photographs of faces one being mine. The gif would then flip through these three photographs ending with a full portrait photograph of myself. The inspiration of this gif is shown above.
