Quick Hit Monday On Wednesday: Weddings; Genius of Photography; Inspiration; and Photoshop Freebies

Good Morning Everybody,

It sure feels good getting back home after the whirlwind weekend we just experienced. As president and event coordinator for PhotoPro Summer School, my free time was in very, VERY limited supply for much else including my blog.  Nevertheless, I hoped you enjoyed the Monday post and links.  I believe it included a lot of good information.

Today, we're taking it a little slower around the studio which is giving me the time to blog a bit more leisurely with today's post.  I really enjoy the posting to my blog when I’m not "under the gun" like I unfortunately experienced these past few days.  Anyway, I thought what I'd do today is kind of a Quick Hit Monday post on Wednesday.  I had a lot of cool stuff cued up but ran short on time never got to it posted.  Let's take care of that today.  Here we go...

Quick Hit Monday On Wednesday

Time To Get Inspired – Photographically Speaking

I love finding the gold nuggets of inspirational photography links on the blogsphere.  I’ve got several for you today.  I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I love sharing them with you.

1. Stunning Surreal Photography by Jerry Uelsmann [link]

You’ve got to check this out.  Jerry Uelsmann has been an inspiration to me almost since the beginning of my interest in photography many, many years ago. 

UelsmannJerry’s work is reminiscent of what we are seeing visual artists create in Photoshop these days.  The kicker is that NONE of Jerry’s images were digitally manipulated in any way.  He was a film shooter and was creating these kind of images in his darkroom.  That makes looking at these images even more amazing!

2. 120+ Magnificent Natural Landscape Photographs [link

This is truly an amazing collection of some of the most beautiful, exciting landscapes images I’ve ever seen.  Here is an example from the collection.  This image is by Peter Bowers [link].
