My New Site: CYNTHIA J PHOTOGRAPHY {a preview}

My life has been kinda crazy lately. In a good way. There are lots of projects cookin’ at the same time…multiple burners going. And it’s been a challenge. The good thing is that I love what I do.

Working on my website has been challenging, but its coming along. This is a preview / ‘placeholder’ until all of my photos and other info is finalized. At the same time it’s a lot of fun!


Get Up Close: Great Resources for Macro Photography

I’ve been reading about macro photography for some time. Even though I am eager to start I feel one can never do enough research. Here are some of the links / videos / tutorials that I’ve found helpful in my exploration of this niche of photography:

    Clouds: A Healthy Obsession

    I love clouds. There is something absolutely captivating about a cloud filled sky. Which leads me to the topic of cloud photography. It seems I am not alone in this. There is an entire website dedicated to clouds and those who take photos of them. If you share in the obsession or are perhaps even mildly curious you may want to stop by the Clouds 365 Project (A Webby Award Nominee by the way). At the Clouds 365 Project you can share your clouds photos and admire the work of other artists. I think it’s also really cool the creator, Kelly DeLay, is capturing cloud photos and video. I want to say the videos have that time-lapse feel. This is a really nice touch. Kelly describes himself as a multimedia artist. His site, which explores his obsession with clouds, is top-notch and a must-see for anyone who enjoys clouds / nature / landscape photography.
