David recently traveled to photograph in the Redwood parks in Northern California. Besides the redwood trees there are also beautiful ferns to be photographed there.
I like to thank Anke for allowing me to publish this very intimate photograph. A friend of her is lightning a candle at a monastery. We don’t know why but we can assume that it is for a loved one or a friend. This image makes us aware of the brokenness of human life and that we are not alone. Someone cares!
Enjoy the image and I hope we will see more images from this great photographer!
I started Passion for Photos way back in 2010 as a learning and studying photoblog. Each week or every other week I posted a new exercise and I challenged the viewer to practice, practice, practice photography. The photoblog has grown quite a bit over the years. Now it is time to to reinvent the blog. I invited several distinguished photographers in Europe and the USA to join me and to share their work so we can learn from each other. we all have different styles and views on photography but we have the passion to grow and to become the best in the business we can be.
Since we all speak different languages, we will share our thoughts in our native language. As time allows I will try to translate from time to time.
Good luck and good light to everybody who has the passion to photograph and is willing to share his/her images!
This is an image from David Cattuzzo. David just returned from a trip to the Eastern Sierra Nevada (California) where he photographed the Fall Foliage. You can also see some of the smoke of one of the wildfires which affected the image.
Thank you David for sharing this great image!
Image making has two parts for me.
First, I go out and photograph.
Second, I work with the photograph and transform it into the image that I want it to be.
These are Fall colored leaves that I photographed this morning. Then I applied several filters and worked in layers. This is my final image.
Enjoy and keep on working on your images!
