Animated Gifs and Stories


Public Puzzle

I try to have fun with my photography and look for ways to be creative with the images that the models and I have captured. As a result, not all of the galleries on this site are sets of static images. Occasionally, I like to incorporate animated gifs that convey an idea, a quick story, or even some silliness - like the gif in which Peter's body turns into a marble statue before his head topples off. (The example shown here is a bit more revealing on the members' side of the site.)

Sometimes, I liven things up a bit by employing the Ken Burns effect. This can force the viewer to pay attention to parts of the photograph that may otherwise go unnoticed.

For models who consent, I may take video of our shoots using a vantage point different from the one I'm viewing as the photographer. This allows for some shots not possible with the regular photos, such as this example, in which a gust of wind reveals that our superhero's suit is somewhat incomplete.

At other times, I may use several galleries to tell a long, fanciful story inspired by the images themselves. Even in galleries that you might otherwise think are sets of static images only, I may hide an Easter egg or two.
