I love still photography more than anything…but, taking still images (shot in continuous mode) and streaming them together into a video that looks a bit choppy may take the cake. It tells a story, invites you in to the movement and makes you want to dance along. I also think it stops people from scrolling to fast part your image and draws them in. So, never stop moving. Regardless if you want to create a video from the images or not, shooting in continuous mood gives you the perfect opportunity to get THE perfect shot (or shots). A flowy tulle skirt really helps with the movement too.
I load my images into a stack into Photoshop and then create frames from the layers (it’s so EASY). I export them as a GIF (I say it’s ‘gif’ not ‘jiff’ lol) and then convert them into a .mov for Instagram (because they don’t like GIF’s for whatever reason). Great for your feed, stories and the new popular reels!
Look at the three videos above and tell me which is your favorite and why (tell me in the comments below).
