One Photographer’s Experience Using Sigma Lenses for video in Istanbul, Brussels, and Paris by Eduardo Angel.
Photography for me is more than creating a pretty picture. It’s about telling a story and transporting the viewer to another time and place. The idea that anything is possible if you can dream it is a re-occurring inspiration in my work. If I can create and capture a fantastical scene in our own reality without compositing in Photoshop, I feel that I have succeeded in preserving a little wonder and hope in our world, even if that scene existed for just a brief moment.
The magic of Hawaii, and the reason to keep returning time and time again, lies beyond the well-manicured resorts and pristine sandy beaches. The spirit of the land, or aina as the natives call it, is in the towering cliffs, lush rainforests, volcanic rock-strewn black sand beaches, deep canyons, lava-spouting volcanoes and tall mountains. Most visitors don’t see the incredible diversity Hawaii has to offer, but to those willing to explore, including dedicated photographers, it’s literally a paradise. I will show you only a small part of that incredible natural beauty here in two images of Big Island’s wild coast.
