New England Nature & Scenic Photography
by Sally Rothenhaus
New England Nature Photography
Whether photographing coastal habitats like those found at Hammonasset State Park in Connecticut, the beaches and lighthouses of Cape Cod, or historic places like Gillette Castle and Mystic Seaport, the Connecticut nature and scenic photography of Sally Rothenhaus reflects her personal connection to the places she photographs. Sally got her start in photography as a pre-teen in Florida when her wise parents encouraged her to join a local photography club. As the only youngster, and only female, in a group consisting mostly of professional engineers, she learned much about technique while lending her unique perspective to the groups’ projects. She continued pursuing photography as a way to help finance her adventures during her college years, building skills in portrait and journalistic photography. . It wasn’t until 2010 that Sally began to utilize her nature and scenic photography of Connecticut and beyond in more innovative ways, and CShoreSal took flight.
Now you can find Sally photographing places like Chatfield Hollow in Killingworth, CT, back in time on the historic grounds of Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, the awe inspiring mountains of Switzerland, or right in her home town at the beautiful beaches, wetland and forest habitats, and historic gardens and lighthouses of Old Saybrook. Sally’s style has evolved to include nature, landscape, and still life photography. She has traveled as far as Lucerne, Switzerlandas seen in this photo. All of these subjects, and the custom requests from admirers of her work, are represented beautifully on her unique photography birdhouses.
When designing for birdhouses, Sally’s years of experience shines as she uses various techniques to account for the specific layout and dimensions of the birdhouses. It’s not as simple as using any photo.. Instead the images must be within certain ratios to best highlight the subject matter of the piece while fitting the available space. You can view Sally’s scenic and nature themed photography birdhouses here. They are also available for purchase locally.
