This woman (Elena Shumilova) recognizes beautiful light and takes photos of people and landscapes of beauty. I think you will agree with me and can learn from her photographs.

While I agree with what you say, I always wonder with shots like this, how much is Photoshop. They are beauties though.

Thanks for sharing! She is like the Thomas Kinkade of photography!

In addition to wonderful lighting, her subjects are beautiful and interesting. If I had access to some of the people she has photographed I could make some really nice images also -- maybe not to her level but still some good shots. I don't know if she seeks out these wonderful subjects or if they go to her because of her reputation, but either way, she has some great individuals to work with.

I discovered Elena a few years ago and was amazed at her ability and creativeness. The collection of photos was much smaller then. As a retired pediatrician I particularly appreciated the nursing mother photos. Thanks so much for the link.

I agree completely. Everyone can get a great picture or two. To have such a body of work requires both vision and talent. Wonderful.

Brent, this is so unfair.
She has over 400, "once in a lifetime" shots, while I am still waiting on my 1st, sigh.
However, her pics do make me . . .
