Just because you didn’t get to go to that awesome photography conference doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something from the pros! Occasionally, we’ll be featuring a recommended photography lecture or interview on Phototuts+.
We're featuring up-and-coming photographer Kathie Nichols today as she speaks about her work shooting bark, rust and other textures in a macro format. Her images suggest landscapes, water or movement, and often resemble the other art form she practices: watercolor painting. In addition to Nichols amazing work, this interview shows you where modern amateurs are breaking out of the hobbyist label and moving into professional status.
More of Nichols' work can be found at her RedBubble site.
