Why Do You Photograph Certain Shots?

What is it about a subject or object that causes you to take out your camera capturing that moment for eternity?  Is it the way the light reflects off an object that captivates you?  Perhaps it is the pale hues in the evening sky that draw your attention.  Maybe you notice a unique looking flower or insect that will make an excellent subject for a macro photography capture.  Whatever it is that causes you to take out your camera, is something you feel has untapped potential to become a magnificent moment.

I enjoy capturing the rainbow colored sky as the sun sets.

You need to photograph things that appeal to you, keeping your eyes alert for brief moments of unique beauty.  Nature is constantly presenting perfect opportunities to capture breathtaking beauty.


An amazing display of beauty and color from the sun and light.

When searching for photography opportunities in nature, sometimes you have to alter your perspective to achieve the perfect shot.  Immerse yourself among the grass to find hidden treasures.

Sometimes we take a photograph simply because we are amazed by the simple elegance of nature.  We want to have the picture to savor that exact moment in time, allowing that memory of a place to stay forever pure and uneffected in our minds.  Those are my favorite types of captures!

Colors only Mother Nature could infuse with this degree of vibrancy!

Lovely Landscapes

Landscape photography is similar to art, wherein the photographer recreates a capture of a specific landscape, highlighting the best features for their viewers in order to create a magical scene.  The blues of the sky and water are enhanced, making this landscape capture appealing to others. The billowing white clouds captured with a hint of color or shadowing, depending on the time of day, add a dimension of volume.  The photographer strives to expose the most beautiful aspects of the landscape to the viewer. Just as an artist paints a landscape blending colors to match the natural earthy shades using their skills to bring out reflections and shadows created by natural light.  This post is dedicated to the beauty that is found in the varied elements of the natural landscape, and how elements of shadowing, reflections, and natural blending of colors, highlights the landscapes we photograph. The finished result is beautiful pieces of photography, found from the daily view individuals have.  The beauty of the soft glow emitted from the sun, the rainbow hues found within sun trajectories, the sparkle of the water, and the sheen found on surrounding greenery and plants all can be easily overlooked.  The photographer's job is to open other's eyes to the magnificent textures and colors found in our everyday world.  Landscape photography can appear as beautiful as the most intricately painted portrait, when the photographer incorporates naturally occurring aspects into their photos.  The end result is something spectacular to view!
