Introducing Sarah Wasinger

Last fall I had the opportunity to teach Sarah Wasinger a little bit of light painting while we were at the Lonaconing Silk Mill. At the time I commented on my blog that she had done the arrangement of oil cans and how I had enjoyed watching her work and really sensed that there was some serious creative talent within her. Skip forward a couple months and she recently emailed me to show me some of the work she had done with light painting in the months since the Silk Mill. To say I was blown away by the quality and creativity of her work is putting it mildly. Sarah not only has a very strong eye for image design, but she has also mastered the technical concept of light painting. I can hardly wait to see what she creates next.

Here is a link to more of Sarah's images.

I look forward to spring each year because I really do not like winter.  Here at home I’m only seeing the slightest promise of spring, so each March I head to Longwood Gardens to kick off the spring photo season.   The star attraction at Longwood is the Himalayan Blue Poppies.  This year we were a little early, or perhaps the poppies were a little late, and the display area was fairly small and quite crowded.  

This year we had a group of 20 or so photographers from Road Runner Photography Tours Meetup join us so I found other flowers to shoot, like the one pictured above.  

I used the Lensbaby Composer Pro with the Double Glass Optic to get the shot.
