Ann Lewis, an amateur photographer based on the Isle of Wight, talks to Creative Conversations host Yang-May Ooi, about how her passion for nature photography showed her a new way of looking at the world and also made her more confident out and about on her own.
Ann Lewis on How Nature Photography Can Change Your Life CCV0305 ¦ Creative Conversations [podcast]
Ann Lewis and I are friends and also friends on Facebook. She posts beautiful photos of nature on Facebook every day. They are carefully curated to create a mood or bring out a theme for the day. Sometimes she adds a poem, too. I love seeing her nature photos that evoke the beauty of the Isle of Wight where she lives. They even inspired me to take a trip there to see the natural beauty of that island for myself!
This episode was first recorded for my other podcast Rewilding My Life. I am winding down that podcast so I’m moving this conversation here – there’s a lot of discussion about photography, the creative process, creative communities and also geeky tech talk about cameras so despite the nature theme, so I hope those of you interested in the creative process will find it an entertaining and informative listen.
