A cinemagraph is a still photograph in which a minor part is in repetitive motion.  It uses a video captured with a DSLR camera or even a cell phone.  They can be created in photoshop using a loop for the repeated motion with special attention to make the first and last frame exactly the same.

A good link I have found to be helpful in creating these cinemagraphs is by Phlearn at

A Visual Perception

You can see my iBooks project at

The book is based on the Gestalt principles.  These principles define how humans perceive the different grouping of objects, such as proximity, similarity, closure, continuation, symmetry/good form, and figure/ground.

3 Dimensional Photoshop

This chess piece was made using the 3 dimensional option in Photoshop.  The challenge was to use two predefined shapes (I chose the sphere and triangle) and one custom designed.

The irregular shape was drawn in Illustrator and then opened in Photoshop applying the 360 degree option to make the hollow cone and stem shape for the neck of the chess piece.
