Meet The Steemians!

in art •  11 days ago

Photography has been very good to me, for a while I have realized that I wanted to find a way to give back to the community that helped me to jump start my career because I have no idea what rock I would be lying under if it was not for the artistic qualities and the joy discovered shooting photo images. As a way to say thank you and a part of my ongoing series to introduce as many new photographers whom I would describe as peers in the photography industry, to consider joining the Steemit community and platform.

I am pleased to introduce three new photographers who's images I have been given the permission to curate for this post. I am equally as pleased to be able to introduce Steemians to these photographers as I am to introduce these photographers to the Steemit platform. Judging from the sample's of work I have shared from these photographers on this post alone, from my perspective it's obvious these photographers deserve a place here on the site and a foot in the door.

It never fails to humble me when I realize just how generous and amazing photographers can be when I find myself looking for permission to share photographers work for a blog post. Of course some photographers are solely motivated by profit and corporate status, the majority of photographers I have encountered in my time as a photographer believe in the art of photography and cherish as I do myself the chance to be able to be out in the field capturing dynamic images. Just to be able to race home to our computers, unpack a given set of image's in Photoshop, spending a few more hours post-processing photos, only to share the work for free with the world time and time again. That's the reality for most photographers including myself and it probably has not been said enough times how amazing artist who are at the top of their photography game who also happen to be extremely generous individuals actually are.

Any photographer who decides to join Steemit after being invited with one of my blog entries is going to receive a generous up vote for their first post as well as a follow-up interview with a more in-depth article featuring the artist who have arrived on the site. It's not obvious for people who are not familiar with cryptocurrency why they should join a site like this without first familiarizing themselves with the platform in general. That is why I will take as much time as it requires to introduce and properly explain the procedure to anyone I have invited with a blog entry, who I consider to be my peers in the photography industry. Not that I don't think everyone in the world should join the site, I just don't have the time to indoctrinate everyone myself. Although one day I hope to have more time to on-board new users to Steemit 24/7 ;D
In the mean time I have to settle on the four to six hours of free time it takes me to write up and curate one of these post every few days, or as often as I can!

Meet Pascale Forest!
http://www.pascaleforestphotos.com/

Inspired by her art studies at Collège Lionel Groulx, Pascale is suffering from two autoimmune and neurological diseases although her passion inevitably motivates her to get out in the world and capture breathtaking images!

Pascale operates at a much higher degree of difficulty when she set's out to capture images compared to the average photographer. The level of the motivation required to be a photographer under normal circumstances is one thing and the amount of love it takes to put your heart and soul into something that essentially pays nothing back while confronting the reality of a disability, Pascales experience's is something I can't imagine. Although the amount of work that it takes to be a photographer is something I can speak to. I can say first hand Pascale has an amazing work ethic and I would consider myself lucky to be out in the field shooting with her anytime considering we're from the same province, I would love to get the chance to meet her one day.

Pascale Forest seems to be friends with wildlife <3 That apparently follow her around everywhere she goes allowing her to capture amazing images. The quality and detail of Pascal's photo's are exceptional as well as perfectly framed.

Pascale Forest is the kind of photographer I find inspiring, the kind of photographer who motivates me with her collection of work to push myself to the limit without fail! Cheers Pascale ;D

Meet Yan L!

Yum is a software engineer working out of California. Young describes himself as someone who really loves the outdoors and considers Landscaping photography a great way to enjoy his hobby as well as a way to get out in the world.

34714617194_b2516f69d0_b.jpg(https://flic.kr/p/UTBufE)

Yan says he is still learning how to become a better photographer and considers sharing his work online to be an amazing resource for polishing his photography skill. I can't say I disagree with that logic. Photography blogs on the internet helped me hon in my skill, I consider myself lucky to have found some of the blogs for photography through the internet I have over the years and consider the information a fundamental building block for any photographer looking to step up their game in the photography realm and take their experience to the next level.

I say Yan has the right attitude and his images are the proof. Although Yan does not have a professional website yet, that does not mean Yans images do not make the cut. I am happy to be able to introduce to the Steemit community this wonderful artist who is just starting out in the photography world.

ohh my goshhh... so many great shots in one place. My mind is blown away.

how many beautiful and unusual photos.
for the soul, atmosphere, and inspiration, haha

Wow just awesome
Amazing .. The pictures look unreal. Real creativity
Thanks for sharing that with us‏

one touch of nature makes the whole world kin. William shakespeare

It's a flood of breath-taking, jaw-dropping photos! Whew! I'm sure I'll be back for more. Thanks for all the effort putting these tantalizing pictures together.

Every photo is incredible!!!

I hope Steemit is the future of social networks. Giving the power over everything to the community, instead of big opinion-corporations, is the way humanity should go.

And that's why I love to see such talented photographers here on steemit. We are not just a bunch of money craving gold diggers.
We create value.

And looking at those photos above, we create fantastic value!

Having these talented people on here is also very inspiring. This site (and your posts @jazminmillion) made me start with photography, and I'm sure, I'm not the only one. Maybe one day I will create such great pictures too, who knows. :P

·

So jazminmillion is quite the boss I see. Ok I'm checking him out

I liked especially the Pascale photos of the wood duck and the three owl photos, flying in and flying away, and sitting on a snowy branch. My own taste prefers the presence of the artist but only just, barely there, so that you feel that you are the first to look at the subject. All the photos were good, but I liked these especially. Thank you for bringing them here.

It's an impossible task to choose a favourite. They are all so wonderful. :)

I really enjoyed this post. It was real pleasure to see so many beautiful photographs brought together in the one place and good of you to promote the photographers.

Have a great day @jazminmillion. :)

I agree with you, every photo is a masterpiece. Social media and other platforms must continue to promote talent and extend these outputs farther.

very interesting set of photos!

I am still confused for which photo i say that it is my favorite one, everything you just shared is beyond the perfection, wonderful wonderful stuff :)

Without any exaggeration i have not seen such an awesome shot in my entire life <3 <3 <3

I never heard of these two stalwarts in Photography world - Sapna Reddy & Pascale Forest. Just can't keep my eyes away from these high standards photography. Even though I am a layman in terms of the nitty-gritty of the Photography but, one can surely understand the depth of the photography level.

Your photos are amazing beauty. Even difficult to choose the best - they are all beautiful!!!)

·

I'm amazed at the eye of the photographer

Really impressive!!! Can't even image what they had to do to get some of these pics. Northern light, lava, perfectly timed sunsets and rises, .... All things you can't find next door.

·

I totally agree, motivation is everything to get out in the world and shoot stuff like this!

These are AMAZING! Something I've always wanted to try myself but I'm no where near skilled enough. They are great and the way the lighting is makes the pictures even more beautiful. Job well done

My jaws have dropped so hard that I cant put them back in place. One of the best if not the best cocktail of superb photography. Thank you for sharing @jazminmillion !

Wow pictures
Guyz are soing fab going

Nice collection of photograph. You are really intelligent....

Wow! Pretty much every one of those shots is beautiful! I particularly like yans work

WOW What a journey. My heart is racing @jazminmillion!!!!

I love it

Wow. you have taken photography to a new level, your work is awesome, brilliant, I mean it i'm not just tickling your ears. I have just started with my studies of nature locally and i am so addicted to the rush of a good photo and the serotonin the brain releases after a good shot.
I need to invest in a better camera than my phone. It's probably sacrilege mentioning phone and photography in the same sentence to you.

But i have plenty of desire, adventure and imagination.
I would love for you to look at and give me some feed back, I am always learning and open.
I know the camera is only the beginning, the talent lies with you and your artistic flare.
What you see through your eyes is completely different to some one else.

I have a passion for macro photography

Wonderful pictures, @jazminmillion really knows how to captivate his fellow steemians. 👍

Truly amazing pictures. They are doing complete justice to nature, must say. And that's what should be the goal while capturing nature. DO JUSTICE.
