Seeing pieces of Roman history just amazes me and their architecture is absolutely stunning.  I can’t even begin to comprehend the manpower it took to build such beautiful pieces of art.  If you ever have the opportunity to visit Bath England I highly recommend it.

My husband and I just returned from an amazing trip where we visited London, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.  Every city we visited was absolutely amazing and the countryside was the most vivid green I’ve ever seen.  Below are just a few images I’ve taken and edited and have some many more to review, edit and share.

The wildness of Central Washington is amazingly beautiful……. the powerful Columbia River and the Wild Horse Monument are located in Vantage and the prairie image was taken in Sprague Washington.  Many people think Washington is rainy and green however Central Washington has some very harsh prairie lands with beauitful landscapes to be capture by any photographer.

IMG_3619-1IMG_3620I’m so stoked that I’ve had my images published for the first time in our regional newspaper, it’s pretty exciting to see your name under your photographs, as well as a sense of accomplishment knowing that people are going to see your work.

I’m feeling like the last two years of taking college courses in photography are finally coming together, and feel I have the skills to take my photography from being a student to a professional.

I have to say THANK YOU to Julie of the Garland District for giving me this amazing opportunity in photographing this event, I truly appreciate your support.  The Garland District has been home to our family for 28 years and I love giving back to our neighborhood with my photography.

 

Social Commentary Through Photography

Coversation, documenting moments through photography, General, New Photographers, passion, Spokane Washington

For months, politics had been the hot topic of the folks I attended classes with, so I thought I would document how they were feeling through my photography.

I was asked by many if I was worried about offending people, and my answer was ABSOLUTLEY NO!!!!!!!!!!!  Throughout history photography has documented our worlds social issues and has been shared through various medias so it can be seen in hopes to bring attention and change.

You can’t let fear control what you photograph, document what you see even if it’s not your point of view, because I can’t even imagine what we wouldn’t know if artist didn’t share what they have seen through their art…….

THE ARTS ARE A POWERFUL MEDIUM TO EDUCATE AND EVOKE SOCIAL AWARENESS.

A friend of my husband makes beautiful pen sets, so I thought I would photograph this for him. I hope to do a series of his pens because they are truly a work of art.  This one he has titled “2nd Amendment” and I love how the case for the pen is actually a gun case.

large oil paintingI have a total love hate relationship with Photoshop and my editing skills are something that I am focused on learning to really bring my images to the next level.

This was my first attempt at taking one of my flower images to the next level in Photoshop.   I decided to learn the “oil painting” feature in Photoshop and prayed I wouldn’t toss my computer across the room LOL…….. NOTE: NOTHING WAS HURT OR DESTROYED DURING THE EDITING OF THIS IMAGE.   To my utter surprised I completely enjoyed the creative process today and am totally stoked that I learned a new editing style in Photoshop.

I would love to hear your feedback, as well as any ideas/tips you would like to share editing your images especially in the abstract photography area.
