Life As I See It
by Matthew Walters
About the Book
All the images in this book were created with a Lensbaby - a very simple lens which allows the photographer to precisely control the 'sweet spot' of focus.
I prefer to photograph landscapes, buildings, and nature – I struggle with people shots as the subjects tend to get bored waiting for the light, or more likely waiting for me to focus on them and not the building behind them. I do tend to take a few photos of my nephew, but then he’s too young to know any better. I shoot with a Nikon D200 typically and try to achieve the results I want in camera. That said, I like to work in mono and will also occasionally go a little extreme with Photoshop. I have a background in theatre lighting, and I like to think this influences my choice of shots with emphasis on relying on natural lighting.
