Cinemagraphs or Cinegraphs are eye-catching hybrid images that combine still photography with motion. The Cinemagraph is described as a "living photograph".

Photo 365 or A Photo A Day (PAD)

One way to keep your iPhoneography momentum going is to participate in a photography challenge like Photo 365 or a A Photo A Day (PAD). The routine gives you structure and taking a photo every day will make you a better photographer and sharpen your eye, your visual awareness. As a result you'll also get a rich visual story of your life, a photo album with snapshots from your whole year, giving you an insight in what you did and how you felt. 

Of course taking a photo every single day is a huge undertaking and it can be tough to feel inspired sometimes. That's when it can be a big help to participate in a group, like MobiTog's 365 Project or use an app like Learn Photo365 Photography Assignment Generator that assists you with random prompts, assignments, themes, scavenger hunts and daily reminders. 

Noel Chenier who develops Learn Photo365, has just added more polish, more assignments and features to his app, including an exciting Selfie365 challenge list generator "to take your selfies to a new level!"
