“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” — Dorothy Lange
Like writing, photography has been a part of my life since high school. For the school newspaper, I helped take photos with a Canon 35 mm camera and then spent (too much) time processing photos in the dark room. By the time I began working full-time for a magazine, I had moved on to the early versions of digital cameras. One thing remains constant. Whether through a smartphone or a DSLR, that passion for photography remains.
I am not a photography expert, nor do I have dozens of lenses cluttering up office space. [Not anymore anyway.] I simply treat it as a graphic journal that helps me, and others visualize the world around us. I’m simply a hobbyist photographer who’s managed to get a few of her photos published from time to time.
My favorite niches are wildlife and nature photography. I’m also exploring architectural and structural photography as I travel the country exploring the backwoods or big cities. [Sometimes it’s the backwoods in a big city.]
