I often get asked by people dabbling in photography how one “becomes a better photographer”. As with pretty much anything in life, you undoubtedly increase your skill levels through practice, practice, practice. I also feel, however, that great photography comes from being able to recognise a great shot when you see one. This is often done through being constantly aware of your surroundings, and also by pouring over photos from amazingly talented photographers – people who you can draw bucket loads of inspiration from.
That long-winded introduction brings me to the whole point of this Blog entry which is to introduce you to one such inspirational photographer and someone who’s images I spend hours looking at on a regular basis. His name is Scott Stulberg – an American digital photography specialist who has traveled extensively throughout South East Asia and Africa taking a swag of truly stunning images which can be viewed on his showcase flash website at: www.asa100.com.
Check it out for yourself and make sure you look over his numerous galleries – especially the “Africa 2007” and “The Natural World” collections.
