Moving Beauty. Cinemagraphs by Lindsay Adler.

Author, fashion and beauty photographer Lindsay Adler has brought her beautiful images to life with subtle movement by creating Cinemagraphs. These ‘living’ photos capture the attention of viewers on social media like Facebook nine times more than a still photo, making them a smart choice for capturing attention on such platforms.

What is a Cinemagraph?
Cinemagraphs are a way to combine photography and video. They are “living” or “moving” photos that combine the best of both. Traditionally created using software apps like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects, Flixel’s award-winning apps makes the process fast, fun and super-easy to do.
