Through the Lens
This Week in Photography
Photographer Miranda Hughes, aka Hi Howdy Honey, has an old soul approach when she shoots by simply stopping and appreciating nature. Her photos achieve a rich realism, seemingly without extra filters or digital improvements. This technique adds a sense of awareness and patience harkening back to some of the great nature photographers of the ages.
