Hi, I’m Philippe Sainte-Laudy. I live near Strasbourg in France. My goal in the world of photography is to strive for originality, and create my images into an art form. I like photographing nature and in particular landscapes. Photographer by passion for years, today I have my own business.

I also like optimizing and working my images with software such as Photoshop, Aperture or Lightroom.

I hope that photography can bring people closer to nature and encourage them to preserve it for future generations.

This photo was taken this autumn in France near Strasbourg. The season was beautiful this year! The woods were bathed in a light yellow to brown. Almost magical! I also used a tripod to get a good depth of field and bring out maximum detail. I used several layers set in Photoshop to optimize the atmosphere of this forest and give an artistic touch.

I recently published two free ebooks. The first talks about landscape photography and the second includes my best photographs of autumn this year. A kind of Best of 

Thank you to Darwin for allowing me to talk about myself without moderation.

  2. Whoops, sorry for misspelling your name, Philippe – I should have gone by your caption instead of Darwin’s title! ;^D

    (Actually, Darwin, you might want to correct that to help get Philippe the Google-love he so richly deserves…)

  3. Thanks for your visit Jack🙂

  4. Beautiful! Good depth, wonderful light. Magnifique!

  5. Thanks Jack. It was actually my error not Darwin’s so I’ve fixed it now. And yes, isn’t Philippe’s work fantastic? I hope you will visit his website and see more of his images there.

    • Hi, Sabrina –

      Very nice of you to ‘fess up, but I know you’re just taking the bullet for Darwin. The loyalty that guy inspires is, well, inspiring! (Just kidding about the bullet part, Darwin!)
      :^D

      I have been looking at Philippe’s website as well at g+ & facebook – terrific work!

      — Jack
