Each artist sees the world differently. That is why there are so many different versions of the same image that can be presented and none come out exactly the same. This is what I love about art. In the last posting, I told you about my experience with cancer and one of the ways it has effected my art. Today, I will share the way that my love of nature has effected my artistic impression.
When I am out in nature photographing, there is a sense that I am in someway communicating with my subject. I believe that everything has a consciousness. They may not communicate in the same way but there is communication going on. That is why when I am walking through a forest I feel a certain sense of peace, Not all forests feel the same to me. In Alaska, I felt a primordial feeling that I have never had before. The mist was rising through the trees and I felt like the trees were taking a deep breath while drinking in the moisture. It was one of those moments that I can not adequately describe in words but it will inevitability be inscribed in my memory. It was as if I was part of the forest and the forest was part me.
This sense of unity, of being part of the whole has helped to evolve my art to a new level. It is a sensing, feeling, level of communicating with my subject. My goal is to carry on that original feeling or sense to the viewer as well. So when you see my art or even better, go out into nature, you open up to a new level of communication with your environment. Allow the vision to provide you with it's message. If we connect with nature at this level, we just may be able to all exist together without harming one another. You will come to see, that if we are harming one another, we are also harming ourselves.

Specialties: Nature Photography, Living Art, Digital Art and Design, Healing Arts, Feng Shui. Margot Sherry Bogdanow-Carrera’s lifelong dedication to nature photography, her preferred art form for portraying this Earth, the planet unto which we are born and bound to preserve, is evident throughout her website: www.CarreraFineArt.com. Nature, in return, provides us with everything necessary for the spiritual journey we take while we remain on Earth. Too many of us, preoccupied with our daily struggle to survive, have lost sight of that promise, forgetting that if we had cared for Earth, there would be no struggle. Margot Carrera’s avowed insightful and artistic intent is to remind humankind of their connection to and with Nature, to remember that every one of us are – or should be – devoted stewards of this Earth. One can readily observe her special bond with every object she photographs and how this inspires each memorable image. “When you look at my website,” says Carrera, “you will discover at least one singular image that speaks directly to you and helps you to recall your own beautiful connection to Earth."
