Your Home for APN Photography


Thank you for joining us at AnimalsPlantsNature during the month of  May! Each week we brought you a variety of features, interviews, or tutorials. In case you missed one of the articles, or want to see something again, here is a recap!
  
    
Artists of APN: HestefotografOnce again, a new month! I have to tell you, I got really excited when Anette (Hestefotograf) agreed to talk to me about her photography. We had a wonderful conversation, which you can read below! Enjoy! :eager:

Hi Anette! Can you tell us a little about yourself, who are you?
:iconhestefotograf:
I’m not really sure because it changes slowly all the time  I am a fulltime Infrastructure Engineer and part-time equine photographer. I’m a foodie and I love being outside. I also love laying on the sofa, watching series until I fall asleep. I prefer cats over dogs and music or silence over something in between. I come from a small town called Skien in Norway but have been living in Oslo for 10 years. In 2016 I moved to Lisbon, Portugal for 14 months where I worked fulltime as a photographer. This year I have 2 workshops there for those who want to learn more about equine photography.

  Artists of APN: @LordLJCornellPhotosHello and welcome to an interview series that will introduce you to the artists of Animals, Plants and Nature Photography - with a touch of Macro-Nature - here, at AnimalsPlantsNature! We are excited to be bringing you an interview with a well-known APN photographer, to get a closer look at his photography and the thoughts behind the amazing photos he shares with the DeviantArt community: LawrenceCornellPhoto.
Enjoy the interview!

Before we get started, please take a moment to introduce yourself and talk a bit about how you got introduced to the world of photography.

My name is Lawrence Cornell and I live near London in South East England. I started photography at college where I was doing a foundation arts course. I thought I was going to be a painter when I went there but I came out of it early as I had no money so I had to get a job. I guess I thought I'd go back and finish the course one day but I

I am basically a happy snapper who gets even happier and snappier when I'm in nature. My love for animals only translated into a love for photography when my husband bought me my first small digital camera for my birthday. A few months later I got asked to take wedding pictures by a co-worker who saw some of my photos and we upgraded to my first DSLR

The APN Corner: Vol 4We are working here, at AnimalsPlantsNature, to get to know our members and what they want from this group. We would like to learn who the members of AnimalsPlantsNature are, however, in doing this we realize we have failed to let the members know who we are as Group Admins. 
 Despite common belief we are not here only to decline your photos. Giggle We are here to showcase your photos! To properly showcase your work we must organize it so that it can be located by others who would like to see it, that is why we are so very strict with our accepting of your works. So, to help you understand why we do what we do, we thought it would be helpful to get to know who we are.

Time to victimize introduce you to another member of our Admin Team Yuukon.
Time to put out the fire and pay attention

 Yuukon! Than
  Wild Wednesday Vol. 03I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.

We need ADMINS! :la:


Our team at AnimalsPlantsNature group is comprised of down-to-earth (no pun intended lel) members of the community who share a common love of nature photography. We're a great group for someone who has a lot of DA group admin experience AND those who don't have much or any experience but want to get more involved in the community!

We're currently looking for 1 or 2 additional Gallery Moderators and 1 more recruitment team member. If you have any interest in getting more information about these spots, please send us a note at AnimalsPlantsNature and JenFruzz will get back to you quickly!

Aaah so happy I won again! But I wonder if the 3-month core prize could be given to my other account (BlackDiceArt) instead of this one? If it can't that's okay though, thank you.

If you get it in points, maybe you could transfer from one acc to the other? :)

We don't offer a points option for prizes at the APN group. Just Core. ^^

Because the prizes go through communityrelations, we award them to the account that participated in the contest for tracking purposes. I hope that isn't a problem :noes:

Yeah that's okay, it's just came to me that I have an immediate project for my other 2nd account so the core would be more of use there. No problem, thanks.~
