The Snapshot GIF

“GIF” is an abbreviation for Graphics Interchange Formats, a file that supports both static and animated images. I am notorious for using GIFS in text messages because sometimes that’s the best way to express myself! While I use GIFS almost on the daily, I have no experience in making them. Luckily imgflip helped make this process easy.

The concept of my GIF is a behind a scenes look at taking a photo. I set up my tripod and camera, pressed record, and counted down from three before taking a flash photo with my disposable film camera. I edited the video in Final Cut Pro, speeding up the first clip, and joining it with the second clip. Overall, it was a really fun activity and I am happy with how it turned out!
