Finding Myself in the Stars

Finding Myself in the Stars
by Don Whitebread

California, USA – I spent the summers of my youth wherever my father’s work as a geologist took us, usually camped deep in a desert mountain range.  Watching the slow change of light and weather during the day, and the flow of stars across the night sky was my best entertainment. This background fueled my interest in photography, and has drawn me to remote locations throughout my life. I chose to photograph this series using only natural light, and rarely moonlight, to show that faint, diffuse starlight that few people really see any more.

The Long Wait

The Long Wait
Ed Morris, Photographer / Writer

When is a good day to capture an image? Well, there’s no such thing as a bad day. That’s how I approach my photogra- phy. When I’m out and about I’m always on the lookout for perhaps a sudden change in the light, the interplay of light and shade, the curving contours or linear appearance of a scene, maybe a striking combination of colours or of patterns and textures. They’re all out there waiting to be found, to be explored and to be interpreted in a new way. There’s always something to grab ones attention as long as you keep an open mind and an open eye.

The 7 Ways of Zen Landscape Photography

If you’re into landscape photography then have you tried the sub-genre of zen photography? It’s an interesting minimalist approach to capturing the beauty found in nature. Daniel Laan provides some ways you can start incorporating this process into your work.
Article by Daniel Laan

daniellaan01a daniellaan01b daniellaan01cZen photography comes naturally with an empty mind. It’s both waiting for a moment where light, shape, and dynamics fall into place, and being devoid of planning in advance. Instead of checking the weather online before a shoot, you just venture out and essentially wing it. It’s all about being in the moment. As a landscape photographer, I want to share the ways of this minimalist sub-genre.
