Cinemagraphs: The new animated GIF?

I thought this might be a fun and creative task to try with your kids.

Animated GIFs, that are a sequence of images on top of each other, as a miniature movie are always fun to watch. Be it a small portion of a movie, a cartoon or… err, anything, they’ve always been heavily popular.

But Jamie Beck, a fashion photographer has introduced a new form: Cinemagraph.

Cinemagraphs are also animated GIFs, the only difference being that only a particular portion of the image is animated.
