GifBoom App

I’ve been playing with the app GifBoom in the last few days and trying to figure out how to get it to work well.

To see this idea done beautifully, check out photographer Jamie Beck’s blog, From Me To You, where she uses a similar idea of photography called a cinemagraph (http://fromme-toyou.tumblr.com/)
