Electric Orange – my challenge at Marienplatz in the center of Munich

Electric Orange

Fashion comes around and goes around, style will last forever!

It was an exciting, new challenge and a pretty brave action for me to stand still at Marienplatz, which is the underground center of the city Munich, while hundreds of people passed and looked at me. But when we started to do this shooting I actually didn’t even recognize the crowd anymore. I just saw the photographer and the camera and didn’t pay attention to the foreign pedestrians, no matter how many people passed me.

We used a new and modern technique called „Cinemagraph“, a mixture of a video and photo. Basically it is living photography which usually occurs in a manually created loop. It is published in either an animated GIF format or as a video file, and can give the illusion that the viewer is watching a video. Cinemagraphs are made by taking a series of photographs or a video recording, and, using image editing software, compositing the photographs or the video frames into a seamless loop of sequential frames. The term „cinemagraph“ was coined by U.S. photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck, who used the technique to animate their fashion and news photographs beginning in early 2011.
