Spent some quality trial and error time today with live concert GIF-making, this time with the amazing Son Lux (a.k.a. Ryan Lott), who performed at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on Feb. 7. Lott provided a lot of great moments with his gesticulations and arm motions and sometimes-awkward dance moves, but picking the perfect action proved difficult — especially since I originally hoped I could create a more seamless looping GIF. Oh well, next time.

Also, trying to perfect the best images quality and number of frames in the loop all while navigating small file size for a GIF — one that still captures the motion and colors adequately without too much loss of resolution — is tricky. But that’s for another day too.
