Well, here it is – Post number 2 on Russia that I promised. And YES there are people in Russia.
While I love photographing vast empty landscapes, I find that incorporating the human element in these scenes can add so much more to the story I’m wanting to tell. I do this in some of my wedding images where I include the couple as one element in the surrounds they have chosen for their wedding. Both compliment each other to create a more dramatic story.
So here is a bit more of the story of my Russian experience. By the way, did I mention it was COLD, really, really cold.
I don’t usually find myself on the other side of the camera lens, but sometimes it just happens. And well, I REALLY took to Russia. Here are my before & after shots from the trip.
