ISS Cinemagraphs So Beautiful It’s Hard to Believe They’re Real

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned an app called Flixel. It creates cinemagraphs and they were promoting it with Facebook and Fstoppers. (You could turn your FB profile picture into a cool cinemagraph for free. Check out that blog post HERE.) Cinematographer/Photographer Armand Dijcks did something very creative with some ISS images.

ISS (The International Space Station) floats around our earth capturing thousands of images for us to enjoy. Armand took some of those images and created truly incredible cinemagraphs.

Click HERE to check out the article where he explains the process for creating them. He also says he’s likely to add to the series in the future so be sure to follow him HERE.

Great 5 Minute Video on What Film Is

Films (movies) are an art form that have captivated audiences since their first introduction in the late 1800’s. Although digital recording has gained massive popularity among major movie-makers (and has all but taken over still photography) some of the greatest directors of our time are still using film; Wes Anderson, Christopher Nolan, and Steven Spielberg to name a few.

But have you ever wondered; What is film? What is made of? How does it work? If you have, this short video is for you. The team at “What is…..” (which appears to be a new YouTube channel as they’ve only uploaded this single video) offers a brief but surprisingly thorough explanation of what film actually is. Very interesting. Check it out below.
