Photographers believe any thing can be captured artistically and beautifully in different angles and lights. Or can be turned into something repulsive.
Death that’s usually handed with grief can be deemed beautiful and peaceful. A photo of what seems to be a father with her daughter is actually a front for pedophilia. Even food can be made to look appetizing and turn into a disappointment when the market is lured by the skillful photo skills.
But, there is beauty in almost everything. Jill Bliss is a designer turned nature photographer and she captures photos of the natural world with so much color.
Jill was a designer in San Francisco and New York. She sold almost everything she had back in 2012 and moved to a small island in the Pacific Northwest to get back in touch with nature and the great outdoors. And the results are, as you can see, something magical.
She takes a wide array of wild mushrooms she finds in her diverse bio-region of a state and arranges them to be this uber colorful picture of a fungi bouquet!
A one year sabbatical is what drove Jill to move to Salish Sea and it became a life change. She didn’t leave after her sabbatical and is now making a living in the island taking nature photos of the other unexplored islands of the Salish Sea and Washington State.
She loves spring and summer since she gets to work with different people, community and tourists as a naturalist and sharing her knowledge about the surrounding nature.
Who would have thought mushrooms can be this beautiful, right? Everyday people only know mushrooms from the grocery or the market and avoid the ones that they find in the wild in fear of it being poisonous. Jill considers the wild ones to be a great find and turns them into these color splashed photos!
This clearly shows there’s so much beauty in our surroundings and all it takes is the right perspective to see them.
