I am an interior designer by profession and have dabble in photography as a hobby or I should say as an obsession. My camera is small, nothing special really, no additional lens etc.. it fits in my purse and goes with me everywhere I go. It might take me many many shots to get the right look as it can be difficult to get a pic of what I see and want to express to others. I see beauty in almost all things in the cycle of life no matter the size, from the smallest of creatures/nature etc... to the largest above or as far as my little camera will take me anyway. I typically don't take many pics of people except for my grand babies. I love nature and animals. I became much more involved with my photography when I was going through cancer treatments: I needed to pull energy from the sun and the little beautiful plants and things in my yard while recovering. I needed something to get me up and motivated again and photography became a crucial part of my regaining my strength. I am now cancer free and loving life. The digital age has allowed me this new way of expressing myself and look forward to many years of doing so.
I would like to add that approximately 90% of my pics are as they were taken. In fact, I deliberately try not to manipulate my photo's, so very few are. I will crop, rotate and occasionally adjust the brightest/contrast if the pic doesn't reflect how it looked in person to me, but overall I try to share what see and the natural way it looked in the moment.
