Spring Has Sprung
Happy Spring! Even though snow is still falling in some parts of the country, spring is definitely in the air. At this season of new life, it is a good time to consider infusing fresh life into your photography. Try new things, learn all you can, and enjoy your photographic endeavors more than ever.
Get your camera gear out and go in search of new turf. Consider taking a photo workshop to improve your skills and your creativity, or go on a photo tour to expand your personal and photographic horizons.
Today's image is a close-up of a sunflower. Often the sunflower images we see are large fields of them, stretching out to the horizon. But when photographing sweeping scenes, always pay attention to the small things as well. Get in close, show just a portion of the subject, try unusual angles of the same subject, and walk around it if possible to take advantage of different angles of light.
When you take an Awake The Light photo workshop or photo tour, I will help you see all those things and more. You will get personal attention and individual help as needed. You'll see new things and will see things with fresh eyes. And you will have lots of fun and meet new people.
Spring trips coming up are Soar With Songbirds in late April http://awakethelight.com/Songbirds/ ONLY 2 SPACES LEFT.
Also join me at the exquisite location of Charleston, SC in May. The Charleston Charm photo tour http://awakethelight.com/Charleston/ provides opportunities to photograph many of the iconic historic homes, a restored plantation, a boat trip to Ft. Sumter, and much more.
Wherever you go and whatever do, try to look at your surroundings from a new perspective and enjoy all that is around you.
