“The world was not wheeling anymore. It was just very clear and bright and inclined to blur at the edges.”
Many things are unrecognizable today. My job as a first grade teacher has completely changed in location and delivery. I have spent more time at home in the past month than I have in years! As I work to make sense of this new normal, there are things that remain the same.
Photography as a way to interpret the world around me remains the same. Spring has arrived and continues to display its grand beauty whether or not people are in a mental place to truly enjoy it.
After attending the annual meeting of Carolinas’ Nature Photographers Association at the beginning of March (although that seems like a lifetime ago in many ways), my approach to photographing spring changed in some ways. I took more images using artistic blur after attending Tony Sweet’s presentation, Creative In-Camera Effects.
Although the spring of 2020 may go by in a blur, make sure you take time to appreciate the beauty that surrounds you!
