Spring is my favorite time of year I get so excited to photograph all the beautiful flowers that are in bloom. I love the colors, shapes and textures and I have so much fun with editing the images to see what I can create.
Gordon (my camera) and myself took a stroll together through the neighborhood and captured wild flowers, I loved the poppies that were growing randomly in a yard that we passed by so I could help but capture their beauty.
As a photographer, I am really trying to explore my editing skills in multiple programs and just letting my artistic skills grow. There are times that one image can take on so many forms that I find I struggle with what image I like the most. I guess that is the hardest thing for an artist to deal with and I beginning to think your first instinct is actually the best…. DON’T OVER THINK YOUR ART
Before I entered the world of photography, I realize I rarely slowed down long enough to appreciate the beauty around me, this is why I love getting into photography, you slow down and see the world around you. People, places and things start to take on another world to you and I’m finding that I’m actually connecting to my community and the people around me in ways I never have before. Photographing the beauty of what nature gives us is so rewarding. I love the lines, textures and range of colors nature gives us in her works of art.
It’s my goal in my photography to document people, places and nature, letting my camera capture what I see because I believe documenting what I see is in someway preserving a time in history. The above image I feel I’ve capture the beauty of the rose in its glory, because soon it will die and I will soon forget just how beautiful it was. Life in any form is so fragile and can be gone in a moment, memories fade and we wish we had something to remember what is close to us, so document what you see and hold on to your memories .
