A Few More Initial Wigglegram Attempts

This post contains more “Wigglegrams” made from photos I took on the same outing to Kyoto's Shouzan Resort (しょうざん) as the Wigglegram I posted the other day.

Having been made the same time as the previous one, these are not a refinement on the concept, but simply other attempts, some better, some worse.

The first three presented below are simple two-frame wigglegrams, so there's no feeling of “movement”... just “3D”. They are much less compelling than the many-frame wigglegrams we'll see later.

The next two are much nicer....

The next two are built from the same set of photos, the second set being a crop of the first...

Photo Op (Crop)

Here's one last one that is weak photographically, but does have a certain interest...

Towering

I think the key will be a steady hand and an interesting composition. We'll see how it goes the next time I get out with the camera.

Comments so far....

Very cool. One way your D4 comes in very handy with its rapid shooting.

Would it be possible to make them rotatable in more than one dimension? Create an X and Y axis of movement?

It is interesting how different my responses were to the various effects above. The two shot images left me a little frustrated as they felt more like they were flickering. The multi shot versions made me feel more lie I was watching a pan motion in a video clip and made me feel much more comfortable. I know you were less impressed but the shot up into the trees at the end made me feel like I was traveling through the woods. That is my favorite. Thanks for challenging us. – Chicago IL

I’m beginning to really appreciate the magic of these. As a viewer I find myself transported to the spot in a way that I’m not with a still frame or even a short video. Now I’m there, I’m moving around in the scene with my own eyes.

Please do more, and please consider putting a “wigglegram” item in the right column of your blog for easy access.

The “now I’m there” thing is what I’m going for, not the cool factor, so glad to have achieved it. I’ll definitely add a wigglegram category once I get a few more posts with them under my belt. —Jeffrey

The gentle wiggle is wonderful. The sharp shake-it-all-about wiggle is a bit too much for my poor little brain – but hey its weird and wonderful stuff.

Nice implementation! looking forward for more of the 3Ds!

Horrible flickering happens in Opera 11.62[0] in presentations of more than 2 frames. Firefox 10.0[1] provides smoother, flicker-free experience in comparison.

[0] Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; en) Presto/2.10.229 Version/11.62.

[1] Firefox ESR 10.0.10.

Perhaps it’s because your version is old, or maybe it’s a Linux thing, but I just tried on the latest Opera on OSX and it was silky smooth. —Jeffrey

Is there a reason you haven’t implemented the wiggle on the larger click-through versions of the images? I think that would be extra-special cool….

I’ll save that heavier thing for when I get some good quality wiggles. —Jeffrey

I like the last example. The subject itself has nothing special, but when you mouseover it’s “wow!”. This reminds me of the discussion we had about closing one eye when scanning for a subject to shoot: when the depth is gone a shot may loose a lot. Of course here it’s the contrary. Nice! ( ^^)v

Wow, these are impressive! I kick myself a little for not having thought of this myself. One more thing on my list of slightly-silly-photographic-techniques to try.
Looking forward to seeing your progress. These are already great, but I can imagine there’s still a lot of potential.

Really like these. I find the detail in the background, like the gentleman seeming to rise from a kneeling position in the full frame Photo Op, or the girl moving left, especially in the crop of the same. Interesting stuff.

I discovered your wigglegrams by accident, moving my mouse across an image while sliding up to close or change the page. I did a double take and then explored your other wigglepics. Fun. Would it be possible to have an auto-animated wigglepic? (Like a .gif file on PCs which are used for small animated cartoons with a few different cycling images)
