Fashion Design & Cinemagraphs
Petra Švajger is a recent Fashion Design graduate from The Faculty of Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia. While Petra plans to pursue her masters in graphic design, she currently works as an event photographer. Petra is a multitalented artist with a distinct quirkiness and edge to her art. Interestingly, Švajger “never really felt like a fashion designer,” noting that her true passions are GIFs, and more recently, cinemagraphs. From digital animation to living photos, Švajger has mastered the art of the short looping video.

All the talk of CES and guaranteed to be a popular item this year, drones are one of the new “it” technologies for 2015. March will see New York City host the world’s’ first Film Festival “dedicated to the art of drone cinematography.” While drones have been around for years in various military and surveillance applications. They’ve recently been spotted doing everything from delivering pizzas to dropping off packages from Amazon. Unmanned flying quadcopters have never been so hot, especially in the world of videography.
What’s the Fuss About?
So, some may wonder, “what’s the big deal?” In response to that I would ask, have you ever seen aerial video from a flying drone? It’s incredible. Seriously incredible. It’s hard to put into words how beautiful drone footage can be. It’s literally and figuratively giving new perspectives on how video can be captured. Check out the 4K drone video below for proof.

The Power of 4K
If you haven’t heard of 4K, you probably live under a rock. Patrick, is that you? Spongebob jokes aside, 4K is the future of technology in both the display and device industries. Not an entirely new technology, but rapidly growing in popularity, 4K is paving the way for the future of digital resolution. 1080p has over two million pixels, (1920 x 1080), whereas 4K has over eight million pixels (3840 x 2160)— hence 4K has four times the resolution of 1080p. Images, videos and cinemagraphs look more crisp and colourful on 4K displays. While 8K is already on the horizon, 4K is what we’re going to be using for the next few years.
