Bringing photos to life

Subtile moves on a still image can be used to give the still a 3d effect and bring it to life. We mapped the depth in photoshop using greyscale and added some dust/dirt and lens flairs to add to the perspective shifts.

Original Photo: We start with an image.

We hand paint a greyscale image to depth.

Then we bring them into AfterEffects and do some magic.
