I’ve been experimenting with Gifs over the weekend and I wanted to showcase an entire concert, or in this case, the HARD Summer Festival. Turns out, GIFs only allow for 256 colors, which drops the overall quality, but I still feel like the emotion of a live performance comes across in these animations.
I almost always shoot in burst mode with my camera, giving me mini-gifs to browse through when picking a winner. I wanted to give fans a way to recreate a show without watching a whole video.
Here is a collection of performances, from 2manydjs, Kastle, Axwell, Subfocus, Kill The Noise, and The M Machine. I’ll be doing more of these going forward, learning as I go along. Let me know what you think!
