Photographer Showcase: Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir

I heard about photographer Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir on an episode of the TWIP (This Week In Photography) podcast.

I was inspired by the words she said during the interview and was curious about her work.

After visiting her website I was mesmerized by her photos. She captures the magical qualities of the Icelandic landscapes in a surreal and beautiful manner. 

Some of her other work includes photographs of the Icelandic Horse, photos of the sweaters she knits and selt-portraits.

Check out more of her work on her flickr and her website.


Photographer Showcase: Rustyjaw

I stumbled upon Rustyjaw's flickr, when I just started to become serious about photography and wanted to learn about HDR's. I must admit, it was an incredibly refreshing find.

Prior to that, I never liked HDR's, in fact I avoided trying them myself because I always saw examples that resembled an altered reality with their incredibly saturated colors, soft focus and unrealistic contrast. I never believed in an HDR subtlety, until I saw his work.

I was enamored by his talent for processing incredibly realistic, beautifully toned and detailed photos. Not only that, but his eye for intriguing compositions and his unique creative style completed the triptych of skills photographers should posess.

Every photo submerges the viewer into his world as he documents the old relics, slowly fading from our lives.
