Tamara Lichtenstein – Natural Habitat

Everyday we come across stunning photography. That also means we come across cool people who bless us with their work. We’re always intrigued with photographers who gives us a little peek into their world. For them it’s just plain normal, for us it’s exciting to be a part of their life trough their images. Same with Tamara Lichtenstein from Houston, USA. She takes her camera with her on her daily adventures and documents everything she comes across. Her models are her friends, that could be one of the reasons that she can deliver such genuine up and personal work. If it worked for Ryan McGinley why not for Tamara.

“Everyone loves photography, it’s just a matter of being talented.”

I laugh at my own jokes, and I just laugh a lot in general. I don’t know, i’m not super funny or anything, but I do know how to laugh A LOT. When i was in 8th grade, my mom bought me a point and shoot. it all started from there. sophomore year, I saved up my money for 7 months, and bought a nikon d80. junior year, i bought a nikon n80, which is like the d80, but film. I think film is way more interesting than digital. i’ve lost interest in the digital world.

You can shoot anywhere! Just be creative. Fields are nice, but they are kind of cliche in my opinion. Lately i’ve been shooting a lot in peoples rooms. You get a really good feel of the person when the photograph is of them in their room. All I need is my camera, some natural lighting, and maybe some speedlights. sometimes I dream about having a studio, and a lot of strobes. It’s only natural to have my camera on me at all times. no one ever sees me without it. my friend, lyna, once said “it’s a Tam in her natural habitat.” that made me giggle.

A great inspiration for me is Philippe Halsman. In my opinion, his work is what started photography and photographers different ideas have bloomed from his work. Whether they know it or not.
