Today's podcast is for me as well as all of you who tell me that you want to take more pictures, but you just can't find the time.

Jenna Martin is usually on an insomniac bender, as she puts it, when she starts to see things. The mind starts to do crazy things when it is deprived of sleep. 

“Your reality and dream world start blending together,” says Jenna. “Your mind just goes to weird places. You go to this point where you start to see things from third person.”

And in this place, Jenna finds her inspiration for her art that combines subconscious with reality and “a little bit of fantasy and a little bit of reality.”

“I call it Surrealist Photography. I just created a name for it. I found out later it was called Fine Art Photography,” she says.

In this episode of Shutterbug Life, we talk with Jenna Martin about her Fine Art Photography.
