Nature 6 Responses to “Nature” Lori Sato says: September 1, 2011 at 12:37 pm Hi Laura, I just took Leslie Saber’s Digital 1 class and she recommended you for classes in lightroom/photoshop. I’m not ready to take a class just yet but I just wanted to say how beautiful your gallery is. WOW!!!! I especially love the abstract. I finally learned how to use the basics of my camera from Leslie, now I’m getting ready to try and display what my heart sees when I see an image. Much easier said than done. Your gallery has opened up so many more possibilities I did not know existed without actually painting. Which I have no aptitude…. I should not even be allowed to draw stickmen…. Blessings and Aloha, Lori Reply Laura Shoe says: September 1, 2011 at 4:01 pm Thanks so much for the wonderful note, Lori! I took up photography because I can’t draw or paint. Best wishes with your photography, and I hope to work with you in the future!

Where was it taken Laura? Andy Reply Laura Shoe says: January 28, 2013 at 6:11 pm Hi Andy, this was Seaside beach in Oregon. It has a very gentle slope, so there is often lots of wet sand to hold reflections. The man was clamming. Reply Darren says: March 23, 2013 at 11:29 am Hi Laura, The Photo of the man on the beach is stunning with the water and the reflections. Is this straight from the camera or did you enhance it at all ? Daz Reply Laura Shoe says: March 24, 2013 at 12:35 pm Hi Daz, I’m glad you enjoyed the photo — it has definitely been worked.
