This Dreamworld

Hi, my name is Harrison Sanborn. I am a Director/Cinematographerr, but in my spare time, I enjoy still photography. It helps me hone my craft, and find the beauty in everyday life. The general theme of this blog is Cinematic Photography, perhaps because that is just the way I imagine the world around me. However, I experiment with many different genres. I hope you enjoy. users online

henrikstene asked: I would love to get an insight in your work with the girl in the rain. May you write a tutorial or an inspirational guide on how to do similar work, and how and why you did it?

Perhaps I will! =)

gofik asked: Hey, sorry to hear about you being eliminated from IMTP, I really liked your photo though, it was really good

Thank you. It’s hard to tell what the judges will like. After the first round I realized that being “creative” with the interpretation is really not what they’re looking for. I thought I was doing alright since then, but I guess you never know.

mattdayohio asked: Just came across your work from the Digital Rev show and I was blown away. Really like the cinematic style you pull off in your photos.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.
