Inspirational Photography by Sarah Marino
Sarah Marino is a landscape and nature photographer from Colorado. She strives to capture photographs that convey the elegance, beauty, and the awe-inspiring qualities of the landscapes she explores during her travels. In addition to grand landscapes, Sarah’s portfolio also includes a diverse range of smaller subjects including plants, trees, and abstract natural subjects.
With her subtle yet dramatic images, Sarah has been one of my favorite photographers ever since I stumbled across her images a while back. In my opinion, and many others, she is one of the very best photographers out there today, and her work never stops to impress.
What I particularly like about her photography, is how she produces elegant images of dramatic location. Unlike so many others today, she does not over do images in processing with all the fake light and oversaturated colors and contrast. She manages to keep a natural look, no matter how dramatic the scene is. Her eye for tonal balance, composition and perspective never ceases to impress me.
With all the blast around sites such as 500px lately, where it is all about getting the highest amount of likes by taking images as similar as possible to the most popular, it's refreshing to see images that are more unique, and in many ways more creative. Even though Sarah and her husband Ron travel to many popular destinations, I have yet not had the thought "oh another shot like that". Her effort to create something different from the masses, regardless of how it will rate on social media, shows that by a little extra effort it is possible to capture unique moments at highly touristed places.
Anyway, I've said enough now - so lean back and enjoy some more breathtaking photography!
