Over they years I've shared a lot of images from photographers I know as well as complete strangers who have shared something beautiful, usually on Facebook.
Well, meet Melissa Albert, a children's photographer from Maine, who I first met two years ago at ShutterFest. Most of you don't know Melissa. She's not on the circuit lecturing and doesn't always make it to every convention or conference, but I'll match her passion for the craft against anybody.
Melissa is a perpetual student, constantly working on her skill set and always in search of capturing the ultimate image. She's regularly going through the same process we all do - building confidence, establishing her style and fine-tuning her business and marketing goals.
This week she launched her blog series and kicked it off sending me the image above in an IM asking, "What do you think?"
There's nothing more I need to write - quality and passion speak for themselves!
"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
