From my earliest memories I was coloring, finger painting, rolling bits of clay into a new form or drawing. My little hands liked to be busy and often kept my mouth quiet.
Tablets and pencils were more readily available so drawing held my interest for years. My dad was the shutterbug in the family even developing his own black and white pictures for a short while. I took up the position as family photog, the one at events that always had some kind of camera to capture a photo of the whole gang which was often an exhausting attempt with comedic outcomes.
In my high school years I started sewing a little. That craft blossomed when I became a mama. All of this to say I identify as a creative. I can’t narrow myself to one discipline.
In the past couple of years I’ve learned about still life photography via online classes led by Kim Klassen. I love her style! Her classes are fantastic. Through that, I was introduced to Lightroom and use that with my still life shots. I’m also learning more about Photoshop. While I use it to enhance my shots I try not to overuse it. A light hand in most art is my preference.
I particularly enjoy street photography and at times get lucky with getting good shots. Lighting is a make or break with it for me. I keep trying. Though, living in South Florida we might call it beach photography.
