Leslie Alsheimer is most known for her book Black and White in Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop Lightroom. She is also an internationally award winning photographer. Recognized for her work for perspective documentary photo essays, her recent work brought her to Uganda. Her photographers touch on themes and metaphors of “the enduring human spirit; celebrating life, play, family, culture and community through the joy, pain and love of everyday living.”

Pub, Uganda

A successful image is often one that makes viewers think. The mystery of why these six children are peering into the cracks of this “pub” in Uganda is what makes this photo amusing, delightful, and curious. The use of the wide-angle lens indicates that the photographer is physically close, but the children are so absorbed that they don’t notice. The wide angle is particularly appropriate for this shot—it adds quirkiness to the quality of the image. – Catherine Karnow
