A couple of things

I was browsing through an image library on my iPod and found a couple of things that i wanted to share with you. Who knows, maybe this is something you needed to hear right now?




Everything is online now

Everything goes digital and people connect globally online. I think one of the greatest things about Cinemagraphs is that they catch your attention because you don’t expect still images to move. So it can become a great promoting tool- you catch audience’s attention with the movement and then you have a few seconds to tell them your story through an image to make them interested in looking at your online page. Images are powerful. And images that move (not literal meaning) are the ones that will definitely be remembered.

This is a Cinemagraph that i made earlier today for my boyfriend. He is a storyteller- an editor and a writer. I took his ‘about me’ and put it in this image, wanting to make something artistic and something that will reflect his personality. A moving globe represents that what he does is universal- stories are all around the world.

I enjoy making Cinemagraphs (although i made only two of them and they’re taking quite a while to make yet). They are a great add on to your personal website if they can tell your story 😉 Let’s face it, it’s all about stories.

How long can I keep it for?

Throughout my life I created a few blogs and tried updating them a few times a week. Did it work? Not really as I am here again creating a new one. I guess I’m not really a blog person. I love writing my thoughts down and I have a special notebook for it but blog is something completely different for me. When I’m writing a blog I feel like it’s going nowhere. Like I’m talking to no one. I think that is one of the reasons why I can’t keep a blog for a long period of time. But who knows maybe this one will work for me!?

Anyway, I’m pretty sure all of my posts will be reflections on my camera classes, posts about my favourite photographers and cinematographers and my random ideas as they come and go. Hope you have fun reading them if there’s someone out there actually reading them 😀
