Sarah’s Take: Today we welcome a guest blogger, the talented Suzie St. Pierre. A friend from photography school, Suzie always finds the coolest perspectives when she shoots…whether that means lying flat on a dock, standing in water, or hanging precariously over a fire escape. When I asked her if she’d like to share a creative shot for Fine Art Friday, she sent over this beauty. She is a master with her 90mm 2.8 macro lens, which I suspect she used for this awesome image. Thanks for sharing your talent with us! I’m hitting the road in a few minutes to head up to Amherst College for my 10th college reunion…yikes! How did that happen? I hope your Memorial Day is also filled with keg beer, delicious food, white shorts (I’m giving you permission to wear them before Monday), old friends, and embarrassing stories of bygone days. Have a great long weekend everyone!
Suzie’s Take: I was super excited when Sarah asked me to participate in Fine Art Friday, but couldn’t decide which photo to submit. After searching through tons of images, I decided on this one. I spent some time in California’s wine country for a class through RMSP, the photography school where Sarah and I met in 2005. While in California, I spent most of the time laying in the dirt underneath the vines. Bizarre I know, but I am always looking for a different perspective and a way to break the rules that we learned in school. Here I managed to break a major one….don’t shoot in back lit areas. Why not? Happy Friday!
