Sarah Lee Bio (Underwater Photographer)

 

From Kona on the Big Island of Hawai’i, Sarah Lee is incessantly glued to camera viewfinders, DaFiNs, and the sea.

Her passion for photography, particularly underwater and surf photography was shaped by a childhood where she was constantly playing in and around the ocean.

As a long-distance swimmer and surfer, her strength as an athlete in the ocean and tide allows her to capture swimmers and surfers in the special way she does beneath the sea.

“My aim in making photos is to capture and accentuate the beauty in what surrounds me.

Photography to me is a mode of visual problem solving and a way to perpetuate the stoke, whether it be above the surface or below.”

Lately, Sarah has been involved in shooting photo and video content for Alison’s Adventures.

Writing Tips for Aspiring Writers – Elmore Leonard

“If it sounds like writing,” says Elmore Leonard, “I rewrite it.”

“You have to listen to your characters.”
“Don’t worry about what your mother thinks of your language.”
“Try to get a rhythm.”

Here are the rules:

Never open a book with the weather.
Avoid prologues.
Never use a verb other than “said” to carry dialogue.
Never use an adverb to modify the verb “said.”
Keep your exclamation points under control!
Never use the words “suddenly” or “all hell broke loose.”
Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
Same for places and things.
Leave out the parts readers tend to skip.

“It takes four pages of writing to get one that I like.” said Elmore

Elmore wrote from 10 am to 6 pm every day.
