Weekly Photo Challenge: Local

These photographs are part of the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge, this weeks topic is local. I shared these landscape photos because I love my local area. I live in Delaware, for the most part the weather is good but I find the location to be great. I could travel 15 minutes from my home and spend the day in the city, I could leave my home and drive 15 minutes in another direction and hit a vast expanse of beautiful rural landscapes; dotted with colorful barns and crops. I could drive 15 minutes in another direction and be standing on a beautiful beach listening to to waves come ashore or fish off of the pier. What better variety could you have for photographic topics in such a small area of land.

A higher shutter speed was used to capture the odd water formations that occur as the water bounces off of the beach on impact. A split tone coloring effect was applied for a dream like moodiness of the image.

Photographer in the Spotlight: Landscape Photographer Dustin LeFevre

This week we chose to showcase nature and landscape photographer Dustin LeFevre from Salt Lake City, Utah.

Dustin’s Previous Spotlight Days 1, 2 , 3 , 4 ,

Several months ago PI Photography and Fine Art rolled out with a new series of blog posts called Photographer in the Spotlight. For a full week we will showcase the bio, artist statement and seven images of a selected photographer’s work that we found most interesting. Our hope is that our audience not only sees the beautiful work created by these passionate photographers but also learn a little about the artists behind the pieces. There are so many wonderful photographers in the world and a lot of the time we only see the photograph, not the artist.  So we thought it would be nice to show appreciation for the artist, for their dedication to their field, and share some of their work along the way.

Think about it, if it wasn’t for the artist then there would be no art to admire and honestly, life would be pretty boring without it! So show your appreciation to them for spicing up your life and showing you their beautiful perception of the world. Share their stories and captivating work for others to experience.

If you would like to be showcased or know a photographer who should be, please submit the info through our contact us page: Photographer in the Spotlight Submissions
