Always wondered how to make these, finally had the time today. Learned it by reading this and this. This was my trial with one camera and put together in Ps using frame animation under timeline. Hope to try this with real people soon.

1. Compose your subject with foreground, middleground and background in mind. The more variation the better.
2. A GIF can only hold 256 colors, a Canon RAW file hold 68.7 billion colors. So your photos will amazing color may appear really blotchy, either shoot smaller files or compose your colors in camera.
3. Your subjects eyes (if applicable) can really add depth into your animation.
