INSTA*LOVE :: Cynthia Hernandez :: @hernandez_c

So excited, our INSTA*LOVE series gets to feature an artist with a really cool feed :: Cynthia Hernandez :: @hernandez_c! Her architectural shots are seriously stunning and I love her crisp, blue sky backdrops. There's just something about that minimalistic vibe and she really captures it.
Where do you live?

I live in Stamford, Connecticut

What do you love/love to do?

I love the outdoors, great architecture, animals and design! 

What inspires you?

My first instagram influences of minimal art was through @mattcrump. I never saw candy color art before and was inspired to start my own journey but with the color blue! I found blue to be very calming and a much more natural color for my backdrops. In terms of subject, I wasn't sure what to shoot at the beginning I tried a little bit of everything until I found my sweet spot, architecture. What helped me find out the beauty of it was @akinkhan. His instagram is what I aspire my art to be! Beautifully edited architecture shots. 
What do you look for when taking a photo?

I look for interesting buildings when I shoot. I walk around all over the place but concentrate on cities! I think glass is great to manipulate when I edit but I also enjoy plain buildings as well! When I shoot I envision what I will be editing later.

What are your favorite apps and filters to edit with?

I manually edit all my photos through photoshop. This includes cutting out backgrounds, duplicating content, fixing them. Also a lot of the photography tools as well, my brightness and contrast, curves, hue, color balance! I do it all on this. I save instagram for last because I honestly love their shadow tool, it helps bring some more light in those dark areas that would be harder to pin point on photoshop. Those are usually my two processes. I haven't tried other applications but would definitely be interested in the future!
Who are your favorite fellow Instagrammers?

So I probably answered this a little before but am definitely a fan of @mattcrump and @akinkhan. Also absolutely adore @multiplanar's work. Karel infuses a multitude of texture into minimal architecture, it's another way to think candy colored! Another recent favorite is @the_architecture_photographer. Paul uses beautiful buildings of Berlin and keeps some of the original color, but adds a candy pop! He also uses my favorite backdrop color of blue so its hard not to be a fan!
Super cool shots, right?! She's now introduced me to a bunch of other cool peeps in the Instagram world too! Check her out @hernandez_c and she has a website too :: www.iamcynthiahernandez.com :: It's super cool!

Thanks so much to Cynthia for participating in our INSTA*LOVE series!
