I Want to Shoot Like Liana!


Have you visited Liana’s blog?  Her work inspires mine.

No, I am not the poet / writer that she is but if I can gain even a measure of her skill with the camera, I’ll be satisfied.


Many of the photographers that I follow inspire me, and I plan to highlight some of them over the next months.  When one of my images aspires to the style of someone I admire, I’m going to post mine, referencing the photographer at the same time.

  1. Thanks for sharing Liana’s page here 😀 I really like her blog and I can see she has a lot of photos from Ireland. I have also visited Ireland, one month ago, so it brings memories back 😀

    • I’m glad you checked out her blog. She writes and photographs beautifully.
      I’ve not been to Ireland, but I sure hope to get there someday.

  2. It’s the nicest thing, to be inspired. I just peaked over yonder and Liana’s photo look magical. I’ve bookmarked for a go back.
    There’s always room for improvement and that’s what makes our artful endeavours interesting and fun. I’m always learning something at WP and I love that.
    Now I’m mesmerized by your composition LB, how do you set your camera to burst the lights behind the subject? I really need to get back to camera work. I couldn’t find my camera battery charger in this mess and then I found it but now don’t know what I did with the battery, HA. I’m a scattered mess. Happy Weekend! xoK

    • I’m sure you are surrounded by boxes and piles, but I know that you are creating a beautiful new living space. Hang in there K, I’ve been sending positive and calming thoughts!
      0h! and thanks for checking out Liana’s blog 🙂 She’s so talented … like you! And yes … I’m always learning something from my friends on WP. So very grateful for the wonderful journey that is WP blogging!

  3. I’m swooning . . . this feels so good to read . . . just how long can I indulge this myth that I am doing anything but imitating what I see? For a photographer, I’m quite the poser, Laurie, and that’s the Goddess’s truth 🙂

  5. I love this shot Laurie the backlighting and bokeh are great as is the color and the little fuzzies (watchyamacallits) came through awesome. I must confess though, I am a big fan of Liana’s work also 🙂 Have a great weekend Laurie.

    • Her work is incredible … as is yours, and I’m sure I’ll highlight your work at some point too.
      And yes! the fuzzy whatchyamacallits are fun in this one!

      • I see you liked the whatchyamacallits 🙂 You are selling yourself way too short with your work my friend 🙂 Enjoy your weekend Laurie.

  6. Liana is quite the inspiration…I’ve spent literal hours going through her archives…admiring her photography and absolutely loving her words.

    This is a beautiful image, LB….and it’s all Yours…..

    • I’m so glad you came over from Liana’s blog! Thank you so very much for all of your lovely comments! I look forward to checking out your blog!

  7. So beautiful Laurie, I love this photo! It’s a great thing to be inspired by others’ work. I really like Liana’s blog also. 🙂
