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.
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, ^^)
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.

Can you find the Opera House in there? ^^
Saw this picture on Facebook, liked it very much. I think I’m definitely the “Right”.
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
