It just so happened that this week I was in London working on the day of the teacher strike about pensions. I was on another job but as I had my camera and tripod with me I quickly set it up asked these two to kindly pose while I filmed them for a few seconds or so. Because I was working on a job for a client who wanted some gif animations I thought it might be an idea to turn a current news event into a gif as well.
There is some debate about the decline of news photography and focus more on video but how about a mix to of the two - a gif. It can have the same power of the still with the added advantage of being part video.
I thought it might make an interesting topic to discuss.
