Fields: At my nature school I was assigned to go around campus taking photos of the scenery/views and saw a llama that was posing and decided to take a photo of him.

Do you have a specific theme or topic that is the focus of your photography?

Fields: Natural/taking photos of things just the way they are.

What have you gained/experienced while working with this topic?

Fields: That taking photos of things just the way they are, helps reveal the true natural beauty of the world.

Tell us something about yourself that most people wouldn’t notice about you.

Fields: I think a lot.

What’s a piece of advice you would offer to other photographers to encourage their creativity?

Fields: Go with the flow. 

We at Bokeh Focus appreciate the aesthetic of capturing the everyday beauty that Fields expresses through her photography. Her intuitive comprehension of composition and subject emphasis is impressive. Thank you for sharing your work and words with the greater Bokeh Focus community, Alyssa.
