Alex Martin attended the University of Tampa and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts with a Photography concentration. In Tampa, she was surrounded by beautiful, natural water as well as amazing water features all across the city. Water first caught her attention about five years ago and has been a main focus of her photographic work ever since. She photographs with a Canon EOS Rebel T6i and enjoys using very shallow depth of field to add detail and intrigue to her photographs. Her work contains images that celebrate the grace and fluidity of water and its many characteristics. She loves finding beauty in the ordinary and revealing details that may not be seen at first glance. She is inspired by the graceful movement of water and what it is capable of. As a dancer, movement has always inspired her, and she has now transferred that love for movement into photographing water. She captures images of moving water in hopes that viewers will see it through her eyes and appreciate the beauty and grace as she does. View this beautiful photography by Alex Martin!
I captured this image as a water feature in Tampa, Florida shot into the sky. Crouching below, I quickly prepared my camera and managed to line up the water, clouds and blue sky to create the image I pictured in my head.
