Ever see one of those incredible photos with the Milky Way on full glorious display over a landscape and wonder how the hell do they do that?
Check out this weeks Storyland Art Recommendation, and behold the wondrous creations of Michael Shainblum Photography: https://www.facebook.com/shainblumphoto/
His photos are beyond amazing and on his page he has filmed some Q&A’s for photographers who are interested in doing their own, or in just learning about his incredible process. It’s great information for photographers on equipment, style and editing software.
He impressed me tremendously with his art, and his discussion sessions because he made it very clear that while some specific equipment can be necessary for some complicated shots, what you need most is a good eye and a passion for the art. That’s something that is often overlooked when people just want to sell you thousands of dollars of equipment and editing programs. Catching the dream shot is more about seeing it than anything else, and how sometimes you have to see beyond the moment you are in, and anticipate the beauty that awaits.
He mentions that you can contact him to license the use of his pictures, so if you are looking for cover art that is out of this world, this might be a good place to start!
I love it when art inspires art, and we can all support each other in making our dreams come true!
