Sharing a bit of her personal travel photography, Sarah Sidwell highlights the beauty of New Zealand with photos of the gorgeous landscape.
welcome to the blog
I went outside this week for a breath of fresh air and to capture the beauty of this rare Nashville Winter Wonderland. These days I rarely slow down to take photos for myself-- this reminded me of how important it is to do just that. . . . This week while photographing the iced branches and leaves outside, I couldn't help but focus on the importance of perspective. Moving slightly to the left, zooming in, zooming out, changing the focus of my lens to something new -- by doing any of these things differently, I could capture a multitude of very different moments, all while photographing the same subject. Its so thrilling to be able to "see" the same object in so many different ways. And suddenly, it struck me that in my own life, I am usually not as excited to view an issue from multiple perspectives. But, why wouldn't I? When photographing something, it can look horribly dull when standing in one spot, but walk around the subject, find an interesting angle, zoom in so that the light fills the frame and BOOM -- dull changed to breathe taking.
