Photographer Lisa Asp shares a bit of local beauty.
Nature can be like an outdoor canvas—ephemeral scenes of seasonal splendor. Some views develop organically, created by wind, rain and sun. Gardeners and landscape designers create other scenes, like artists who shape sculptures from soil, shrubs, and seeds. But it’s landscape photographers who capture those scenes and create another dimension of beauty that can be preserved, printed, displayed and enjoyed again and again.
Edina High School senior Greta Hatzung is an avid photographer. She started taking pictures in middle school, and her passion has blossomed. “I had a small point-and-shoot [camera] and would take pictures of anything that I saw, mainly my family. But in ninth grade, I got my first DSLR [digital single-lens reflex] camera and became more serious about learning how to use it,” she says.
