Photography by Larry Landakerwww.ArtPal.com/larrylandaker
Larry Landaker lives in the Texas Hill Country, near Austin. Some time ago he desired a better work/life balance.
"I bought a great camera and some lenses and began taking shots of different and unusual things that people might not see every day. Once I trained my eye to look for those things, I couldn't stop shooting. Because I live in the Texas hill country and work in the city, I see the endless possibilities in both worlds. A lot of my favorite work is night photography.
While fully respecting the technical aspects of his camera and editing software, he believes the essence of photography is found in the subject itself.
"The camera will shoot anything but there must be something compelling in the image, something that evokes a response. Maybe it amazes or carries you to a faraway place or a distant memory. When these things happen, it's usually a good picture."
