Thorsten Overgaard- great photographer

Photography is an odd art.  It takes what we all see and turns it an image that makes you see it differently.  Little a photographer captures is outside of your normal vision.  You may be standing next to the photographer, and not realize you are looking at art till you see the image rendered.  Thorsten Overgaard is one of those photographers.  His blog generously shares his work and he takes a lot of time to write about it, and has been doing so for many years.  It is worth looking at if you ever wonder what there is around you of beauty or drama.

His tool is appropriate to his skill, a Leica M9 currently.  It is interesting to read his view of his transition from film to digital, and his reason for using a Leica.  Unlike many photographers, it has nothing to do with the brand.  It is simply that it works for him in the way he works.

If you have an interest in photography, visit his blog and get inspired.  You will up you game.
