Something I have become interested in learning more about is photographing landscapes and using light to create contrast in my photos. I started to become interested in Michael Kenna because he took amazing photographs of landscapes. Michael Kenna was born in Britian in 1953. He takes contemporary landscape pictures in black and white. Sometimes he takes pictures at night with extremely long exposures. He has also worked for large companies, such as Audi and Mercedes-Benz. One of his photos, Snow Covered Pier, caught my attention.
