Extreme Storm over Manhattan & Science News Magazine


The extreme storm over Manhattan on Sept 8th, 2012 which resulted in two tornados on the edge of NYC. There were, however, no reported sightings of zombies or Batman.


3 years after I took this photo it made the cover of Science News Magazine this month. It’s my first magazine cover.

The editors found my photo while searching on 500px which illustrates the importance for photographers to share their work. Good titling and key wording are also crucial to getting your work seen!

    Hi Lisa, I have stumble upon your blog for the second time and have to say how cool what you are doing is! I enjoyed your photos shot with an iphone from all over the world, especially from Japan as I’m originally from Tokyo. You revealed the culture very beautifully. Thank you for sharing your passion and talent through your posts! I look forward to your future projects:)
