Lean In – An Example of Cinematic Photography

Lean In - New York City - 2007

Ming Thein recently released a new two part video series on developing style in photography. One of the four styles he discusses is a cinematic style – something he’s known for.

This is an example applying some of his techniques to a 2007 image of mine shot on the steps of the New York Public Library in New York. As I was spinning through my old Lightroom library looking for examples, this woman’s red jacket jumped out at me. The image was shot with a Canon PowerShot S500 – my ever present companion back in those days.

I post processed the image using Lightroom 5, VSCO Film 05 and Photoshop CC.
