Flamenco Dancers

Every time I look at these photos I took 3 years ago for a group of Flamenco artists, it draws me into a different world.

Into a world where it’s so quite you can only hear their feet tapping,  where they perform and express themselves with their souls.

Flamenco dancers are truly musicians with their feet and body. You will understand once you see a live flamenco show.

Three interesting cinemagraphs of “Shining” by IWDRM

Be patient with the first one…

 

Don’t you love them? lol.

Go check their blog, there are more movie cinemagraphs

More experiment on Cinemagraph

I had fun making a few more cinemagraph photos for Pozible.com this week, and figured out some common issues I should try to avoid in the future.

1. shoot with an tripod! and be careful with environmental hazard( such as on a windy day, your camera and tripod might shake a bit).

2. pre-design the frame and action

3. the action shouldn’t be too subtle, otherwise people won’t notice it.

4.if the action is happening as a part of an object (especially a person), try to keep the rest of that object as still as possible.

5. when there are no two same moments in the action, it will be very hard to loop the action later, as there will be a jump between and end frame and the first frame. It doesn’t look smooth (and not natural in some cases).  You can try to reverse the action.

Here they are. The last two photos are examples of “too subtle”.  See if you can find where the action is~! (I apologize if you can’t find it, ^^)

A short holiday in Melbourne

The window view we had in an apartment we rent through airbnb.

It was really cosy and lovely and close to everything.

Went to F1 for the first time. Everyone around me is moving their heads from left to right.

If Sydney is a planet, what will it look like?

A sunny day on Shark Island looking toward Sydney harbour.

Having fun with my new iPhone App Tiny Planet.

Can you find the Opera House in there? ^^

Where is the next step?

Found this series I did 5 years ago. Still like it very much. Where is the next step? Life sometime seems to go in circles or re-occur in different periods. Hope I will find out soon..

Where is the next step?

Can you see clearly?

optical illusion +kaleidoscope ? = world of dizziness…

Which Side of Brain are you?

Saw this picture on Facebook, liked it very much. I think I’m definitely the “Right”.

Image

LEFT BRAIN- I am the left brain
I am a scientist. A mathematician.
I love the familiar, I categorize. I am accurate. Linear.
Analytical. Strategic. I am practical.
Always in control. A master of words and language.
Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers.
I am order. I am logic.
I know exactly who I am.
——–
RIGHT BRAIN- I am the right brain.
I am creativity, a free spirit. I am passion.
Yearning . Sensuality. I am the sound of the roaring laughter .
I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet.
I am movement. Vivid colors,
I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas,
I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel.
I am everything I wanted to be

悉尼这个让人又爱又恨的地方

恨其实也说不上,只是感到迷茫时,不知何去何从,看到身边的朋友们的一些经历更是觉得如此。不同的人在不同的阶段在生活不同的方面都需要同样的方向感吧。 工作安定的想在感情上寻找依托,感情上幸运的又在事业上筹措,工作爱情都稳定谁知道是不是又在为寻找自我而迷茫呢。不行,要像沈杏仁那样正面思考,不想在 悉尼待的同学们要这样想,此处不留爷,自有留爷处。想待下来就要想,是金子总是会发光的!
