I recently discovered a new photographer whose work (and attitude) I love, not least because of the way she photographs light. Here's what she says on the front page of her site (obviously she too knows about looking at life through a "beauty lens"):
"I often hear the question: "What lens were you using?" People most often refer to the camera lens – and while the camera lens is important, the real lens is what we bring to it, shaped by who we are and where we're coming from – our perceptions, our unique perspective and the context of our lives."
Here's one of her images (check out others on her website):
