By “loops” I’m referring to what are also called cinemagraphs or motion graphics — somewhat animated images that repeat. They’re most frequently seen in social media and online advertising ( . . . and the newspaper in Harry Potter). Like my photoremixes they are made from original photos. The exception to this rule is that I do sometimes use stock footage of sky as an element.
Some tech talk: The images on this page are all gifs. Click on them to see a larger image. When displaying these individually on a monitor I usually use a 1080 or 4K video file rather than the color-compressed gifs you see here. These are pretty big files and may take some time to load, depending on your connection speed.
