Paul is a wonderful photographer, whose work has been featured in @harleyandbucks restaurant located in Ogden, Utah. His photo of sunrise at Mesa Arch was chosen from thousand’s of entries and is shown on Delta Air Lines pre-flight video. We are so happy he has chosen to share his work with us and we recommend you give him a follow for some daily inspiration. We are thrilled to share a few of his pieces here on Two Strangers Photography.
You can visit him on @epaulsmith on Instagram and his Facebook page E Paul Smith, tell him Jeff sent you.
This is my most favorite photograph I’ve taken. This was a hike that was tougher than I thought it would be. (Probably shouldn’t of done it) But the reward of completing it was way more than I could imagine. To be at the Kiva was an incredible feeling. I was moved by being in a sacred place where the Indians worshiped and prayed. The more time I spent there the better the sky and lighting became. All in all, a day I don’t think I’ll ever forget. ~Jeff
All time favorite photo from Melanie…
Sunrise at Lake Powell
This was taken early in the morning… I had just woken up, sitting there by myself contemplating the universe…(just kidding I was rubbing the sleep from eyes), it only last a split second, but I caught the magic! I love Lake Powell, it never disappoints. I have never witnessed another sunrise as spectacular as this one. I love photography and sharing my moments with everyone. ~Melanie @mamojeep_photography
Here at Two Strangers Photography, we thought it might be nice if we add a little learning lessons to our blog. We pick up things from here, there and everywhere. Sometimes, or more accurately we picked these up the hard the way…after the frustrating chaos…not before. We like to have hands on learning or learn by “oh snap, what just happened!” Yep! that is how it usually works for Jeff and I. We mess up and then take the next 3 days to figure out how to un-mess it!!
Learning Lesson Tip:
*ALWAYS format your memory card in the camera when you want to empty the card. Never delete images on the card individually, or through your computer.
*The only way to improve your photography is to get out there and snap that shutter.
*Get creative & experiment, play with different f-stops and shutter speeds. See what kind of magic you can capture!
*Challenge yourself & find inspiration from others.
Thank you for stopping by…let us know what you think, we would love to hear from you!
Get out there and snap that shutter!
