You took a chance on loving me

Hello Hermia’s lovely readers. My name is Emma from kisses and cross stitches. One of the things that I love to write about on my own blog is the photographers that entice and influence me. So I thought that for my guest post on my friend Hermia’s blog, I would share some of my all-time favourite photographers with you.

Lina Scheynius has been a favourite of mine for a long time now. I love the dramatic use of light in her photos, and how much detail there is in every picture, especially in the background.

I only recently discovered Mary Robinson’s photography. When I look at her photos, I find myself transported away to the beautiful locations she uses.

I love the photos that Maja from polkadots and vodkashots posted on her blog. Such shame that she has chosen to discontinue with posting, but there are hundreds of photos in her archives to feast your eyes on.

Sophie Richards is incredibly talented! This young Australian will go far, mark my words! Her self portraits are divine.

Lillian Wilkie has an eye for noticing things which might otherwise go un-noticed and a talent for expertly capturing them on her lens. I could look at her photographs all day, they always make me want to go for a walk with my camera.

Sarah McLean can find beauty in anything she comes across with her camera. Everyday mundane objects are looked at in a new, interesting light through the lens of Sarah’s collection of film cameras.

One of the first photographers that I discovered whilst writing my blog was Sarah Hermans. Her work is amazing and she is still one of my favourites today.

Last but certainly not least, Marlene Marino‘s photographs are beautiful and dreamy, instantly evoking memories of summers gone by.
