Lately, I have been on a cinemagraph kick. Sometimes when I want to play with a new piece of gear, or find an amazing location, or come up with a cool concept, I browse Model Mayhem to see if anyone is currently looking to do any fun shoots in the Orlando area. I enjoy discovering new faces to photograph! So when Melissa from MM told me she wanted to shoot a Queen of the Jungle concept, I was so stoked! We chose Dickson Azalea Park in Orlando as our location, and used the gigantic ancient tree as our prop for this inspiration shoot. She looked very much like a lioness on the prowl!
To make the cinemagraph below (or as I call it, a Living Moment), I set my camera on a tripod to minimize movement, and had her repeat a small motion a few times until we got a more-or-less seamless flow. To create the finished image, YouTube to the rescue! Depending on your browser, you may need to give this about 5 seconds to load properly.
