Feb/March Photo Tour Results – Samantha Chrysanthou

Samantha came along on both the February and the March Winter Tours. Below are eight of her favorite images from the outings. Although Samantha made some killer images of the ice on Abraham Lake for her that was a ‘low hanging fruit’. The real challenge is in making images from scenes that are less obvious and rely more on vision and seeing than on a dropping yourself in front of an obvious trophy. The thing that always impresses me about Samantha is that she makes great images from things that I would never see.

  1. Sam very creative images and process work. I like your unique talent for looking for design. Going beyond a pretty picture, you look for design and filling the frame. I look forward to taking one of your classes some day.

    Samantha has that gift of an abstract artist’s eye, seeing connecting patterns that she delicately binds together into the boundaries of the photograph’s frame. Very nicely done!

  3. Thanks for the encouraging comments! Lynn, if you win in the Visual Wilderness contest, you can take my class for free 🙂

  4. Shots 2, 5, 6 and 8 are just stunning!

  5. Mike Ferron Says:

    Samantha the 2nd shot is the “one”. Great contrast between the foreground and the those mountains in BK so buried in snow there’s not a rock cliff to be seen. Nice job.

  6. These are really beautiful. I love the last two in particular.

  7. Beautiful Shots Sam! I love the second one from the bottom. Great find on the first one, I remember walking by that spot and thinking too bad the shadows don’t line up with the trees. I guess I didn’t look close enough.

  8. Great Set Sam! I like the second image, it has a 3D quality to it that magnifies the depth of the scene. My next fave is the 7th or 2nd last image, with the grass. The randomness is pleasing and there is no real sense of scale, until you examine the little dark lines to discover they are grasses!

  9. Thanks for the kind comments, everyone!

    Wow! Absolutely breath taking photographs all of them. My favourite is the last one with the ridges of snow leading and enticing the viewer into the scene but the mist obscuring the entire background. It makes the viewer want to put on their boots and go see what is beyond the mist and mountains. Wish my D300 could do that lol. Samantha what lenses do you use.
