Introducing: Tony Pleavin Photography

So I hadn’t set any criteria as to how far outside the London ring road you need to be situated to be listed in Creative Links. The aim was to promote creative industries ‘Beyond the M25’ and I suppose the initial thought was to list those ‘just’ beyond it but since then have been in touch with people as far north as   Manchester and Huddersfield, who am I to set boundaries?…

So with that in mind, please say hello to the excellent Belfast based photographer Tony Pleavin who got in touch with some kind words about what I’m doing here.

His outdoor photography is exceptional, love the way it makes me want to visit all the locations in his shots!

Wonderful world of Cinemagraphs

***UPDATE: If you want to see the first 4 GIFs animating you will have to click them to open up in a separate window****

If like me you shudder at the mention of an animated GIF with horrid recolections of the pre-flash animations that filled up the flashing christmas tree style websites of the late 90s, it’s time to think again with Cinemagraphs.

Cinemagraph is a phrase coined by New York based photographer Jamie Beck and motion graphics artist Kevin Berg and is described perfectly on their site of the same name as ‘An image that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly’

See more by Jamie and Kevin at www.Cinemagraphs.com

The technique has really started to take off since it’s ‘birth’ earlier this year with various tutorials appearing showing how to create your own. Some of my favourites are by Gustaf Mantel who uses films as his inspiration:

The 400 Blows

American Psycho

2001: A Space Odyssey

Full Metal Jacket

The Godfather

Alien
