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.

      Wow, they both are awesome. By the way, you know, I kept staring at that 2010 Hangover image for several minutes, only to realize in the end that it’s not a cinemagraph :P
