[Philip Lelyveld Comment: the many images at this link demonstrate a very interesting pseudo-motion, pseudo-3D effect.]
“What we describe as animated photography is not animation at all. All that happens is that a long string of snap-shot photographs… are passed at rapid speed before the eye.” – F. A. Talbot “Moving Pictures: How They are Made and Worked”, 1912.
Even if we tend to perceive the movement, it is only an illusion, as the animated photos don’t record the moving object, but different motionless positions of the object, that are later combined using different kinds of sometimes sophisticated techniques to create the animated photography that amazes us so much. Another element of amazement is the 3D-like effect that occasionally makes it more realistic than we could imagine it is possible.
Ok, so there’s a trend lately in photography, maybe you’ve seen something while surfing the internet in one of those restless sleepless nights. It consists of creating 3D-like photos that have an animated element. The effect is pretty amazing and gives the actual impression of dimension and depth, as if the person or object captured in the photo is actually in front of your eyes, at the distance of just a touch.
In the showcase for today we’ve gathered amazing 3D-like animated photos for your enjoyment and inspiration. Take a look and pick your favourite one!
