Stephen Emerson was born in Northern Ireland. I suppose it helps that he can point his camera pretty much anywhere and get a great shot. Nevertheless, a lousy photographer still won’t be able to capture these landscapes with the same brilliance. Stephen likes to “experiment with different ways of creating an image to give it a air of mystery”. His loves shooting at dusk and at night to create a dramatic mood.
Mikko Lagerstedt may be self-taught, but the quality of his work is that of a professional. He started getting serious with his photography in December 2008. He loves the way it gives him a different perspective on the world. For him, the most important thing in his photos is the feeling it gives the viewer. His first exhibition was in 2011and he’s currently working on his next one. He lives and works in Finland.
Dave Morrow is a photographer first, and a teacher second. He travels the world looking for that perfect shot. His impressive portfolio includes landscapes, cityscapes, and nightscapes. His shots of the night sky in particular, are quite impressive. He has even published a tutorial for the aspiring enthusiast. A hefty bit of the credit for the excellent quality of his star photos goes to Dave’s post processing technique, but it a great camera and the best digital editing software won’t get you anywhere if you simply don’t have the talent to recognize and take a great shot when you see it.
Dogs are cute and fluffy. That being the case, it’s pretty hard to take a bad picture of a dog. Photographer Daniel Sadlowski does not take good pictures of dogs, he takes great portraits of them. Each furry subject is posed in such a way that highlights their best asset; be it their eyes, their floppy ears, or their furry necks. Daniel is also designs websites when not tinkering with his camera. He is currently based in Germany.
Sebastian Lang is a Munich-based fashion photographer. He loves working with contrasting colors which helps highlight the clothes and not the model. He has a very artist approach to the lighting in his shots which gives the whole picture a delicately edgy mood. Magazines like Pose, Highlights, Elle, Hole, Runway, and Blurart.
Looking at her paintings is like drinking genius from a glass of harmony.
Her works of art and the features of their characters diffuse vibrations of eternity. An eternity that grasps beauty with its arms, but not typical beauty, but rather an indescribable beauty that is disguised as death and radiates the most intense emotions, emotions that make your bones tremble and leave you breathless in a world without time, returning to a world begotten of pure white.

Spanish photographer Maria Zarazua is yet another of the many photographers who have fallen under the spell of twins. In her “Parte de ti” series, she took two different pictures of a pair of twins within the same setting. In the first shot, the pose is usually more formal, with the twins standing side by side and looking straight at the camera. The second picture is shot with a more candid approach with the pair sitting down. I love the fact that she dressed her subjects in identical but not matching clothes. This way, their similarities are heightened while showing their differences at the same time.
Myoung Ho Lee is a young, South Korean artist who has produced an elaborate series of photographs that is simple in concept, nut complex in execution. It poses unusual questions about perception of reality, art, and the environment. Lee simply picks out a likely tree, sets up a white canvas backdrop (with the help of a few assistants of course), and takes a picture. The idea is to mess with the viewers’ perception of depth, reality, and size. According to Lee, “Seeing trees in a refreshing way or restoring the value of trees is to awaken all beings on earth in my work.”.
Simply put, macrophotography is the art of taking a close-up picture of very small objects. Although any object will do, the usual subjects are usually insects, flowers, and water droplets since they give the best results. Photography at this scale has its own difficulties. A steady hand and a great lens aren’t the only things you’ll need. In order to capture the perfect shot, you’ll have to go through a lot of trail and error with the angle, the lighting, and your timing.
At first glance, you’d think it was a picture of three boys playing in the mud. As a matter of fact, it’s one of Teresa Elliot’s ultra-realistic paintings. Teresa Elliot was born and raised in Texas, USA and most of her other paintings reflect a certain western flavor. Texas longhorns in particular, are one of her most frequent subjects. The cattle in her paintings are usually set against an empty background under a dramatically colored sky. The result is a realistically detailed painting of a majestic creature set against a seemingly empty and forbidding vista. Click here for more »
