Perfect for the tech blogger, I shot this clip with a macro lens and only the light from my Nexus 7 tablet. Had a lot of fun doing it. I think this is one of those "true" Cinemagraphs too. Considering all of the moving parts a hard drive has, I chose to only move the actuator arm. I think it works pretty well since the motion blur from the spinning platters and spindle gives the illusion that the drive is still in motion anyway.
This cinemagraph was created using footage from my free stock footage blog, Beachfront B-Roll.
The specific clip used, "Hard Drive Spinning", can be found in the post "1 Free Stock Footage Clip is Driving Hard".
