"Why?" is all about the favorite images of great artists. And, going back to when I started this series, there are no two artists who have had the same reason for loving an image. In fact, Mark Toal commented early on that finding a favorite was like trying to decide which of your kids you like best.
Deborah Sandidge joined me on this new episode of "Why?" and two minutes into the conversation, it was obvious why this is a favorite. Deb is all about pushing the edge of the creative envelope and often experimenting to see what she can capture/create. The image she chose was a four-minute exposure, which in itself is remarkable. She also shared a lot of insight into the various components from the blurred sky to the light on lifeguard post. Click on the image to view in the SCU LightBox.
I started "Why?" to introduce you to the movers and shakers in the industry who set the standards for creativity, quality, and passion. Deb is one of those artists whose images leave us wanting to see more, and the same goes for her clients!
