Working with a photographic collection from a studio photographer means we have access to many instances of two or more shots taken in short succession. In essence, there are hundreds of two-frame movies available to us if we want to make them (and of course we do!) Most of these moving pictures only tell the story of someone fidgeting in front of a camera, but some are better than others. For instance, we can make this air trainee wink at us (click image to animate):

There are dozens and dozens of potential animated GIFs within the Henderson air training photos, so stay tuned for future moving pictures.
