Lindsay Adler Shoots Wedding Cinemagraphs

Lindsay Adler is a NYC-based portrait and fashion photographer. Her work includes accessory lines, hair campaigns and TV promos, to name a few. As a professional photographer, Lindsay is always searching for ways to set herself apart.

“There are so many images everywhere, how do you stand out?” Lindsay stresses that every image needs to have impact, and to create that high-impact one of the key elements “is motion and movement. You’re capturing that moment in time.” With a new focus on creating eye-catching cinemagraphs, Lindsay is already ahead of the curve.

Producing a Cinemagraph

Flixel was an integral part of Lindsay’s most recent cinemagraph shoot which features whimsical brides, balloons, sparklers and cascading flowers. “One of the things that I thought was always so powerful about photography, is that I could take any idea in my mind; any beautiful thing that I envisioned and bring it to life.”

Using the Panasonic Lumix GH4, Lindsay shot 4K video and created stunning living photos using Flixel Cinemagraph Pro for Mac. For Lindsay, the idea of a cinemagraph is ‟bringing a still image to life.” With 4K video, a single frame looks just as good as a photo. The image just has more detail, more vibrancy and more depth to it.”

Flixel will be showcasing Lindsay’s wedding-themed cinemagraphs at WPPI, the massive Wedding & Portrait Photography Conference & Expo in Las Vegas from February 26 to March 5. We’re excited to be a part of the Panasonic booth and the Lumix Lounge, where we will be doing Cinemagraph Pro demos and talking hybrid photos in the #LumixLounge. Check out Lindsay’s Making-Of cinemagraph shoot.

When Cassandra was six, she was asked to share a story with her class…and hasn’t stopped telling them since. Now she does so through photography, video and writing, but with the same sense of wonder - and love for glitter - as her inner kid.


  1. Is 4K on the GH4 good enough for large prints or large screen viewing ? (wondering about the crop factor influence).

    • 4K video is perfect for large screen viewing, especially for cinemagraphs. The image quality is fantastic. There is a pretty hefty difference when pulling a still frame from 4K versus 1080p. In Cinemagraph Pro for Mac you can import and export 4k, Apple Pro Res 4444.
