hello and thank you for sharing this with us.
Now I would like to share something with you. You mentioned you admire landscape / nature photography and images that are not overly edited in post-production.
Please take the time to research the award winning photographer named Jitka Hanzlova.
some quotes about here work
– “in Jika’s pictures there is no welcome. They have taken from the inside. The deep inside of a forest, perceived like the inside of a glove by a hand within it.
– “I went to the forest-hills early in the morning when the forest awakes. Standing there I breathed in the wind, the unruffled voices of the birds and the silence which I love. And then when I was concentrating on a picture, I stopped hearing the silence around me. It was as if I was somewhere else, like in a film. The forest started t move and, as I looked through the camera I experienced fear.”
(Jitka Hanzlova, quoted in John Berger’s Hold Everything Dear).
“The longer one looks at Jitka Hanzlova’s pictures of a forest, the clearer it becomes that a break-out from the prison of modern time is possible. The dryads beckon. You may slip between – but unaccompanied.”
I hope you find some inspiration in this artists work
I look forward to seeing your next assignment.
