The other day my neighbor Amy volunteered to pose for some lighting tests for me. We did a nice headshot, and then a seated pose with a new lighting set-up I concocted to maximize the space I have in my small studio.
I also had the opportunity to try something completely new to me – to create a cinemagraph! (see black and white image above) I only learned about them recently (check out the awesome site from the originators of the cinemagraph), and am just fascinated by the whole concept. Unfortunately I did not have ample light when I was creating my first one – so please excuse the noisy image quality. And I did mine the “old fashioned” way (using Photoshop layers) because I didn’t realize that they have apps that can do it. I just might give one a shot with the next cinemagraph that I create.
