Men in Tights | Fine Art Etching by Colleen Kammerer
Digitally enhanced Etching----In pure etching, a metal (usually copper, zinc or steel) plate is covered with a waxy material, which is resistant to acid.

I strive to capture the beauty in every moment, before that moment has slipped away. I am passionate about creating beautiful art that evokes feelings, drama, and a sense of wonder. Have a look around my site and you'll see some of my favorite subjects to photograph. I'm a Jersey girl at heart so many of my images reflect the nostalgia of Jersey's wonderful landscapes, coastal areas, small town villages, old architecture, and nature. I look to capture unique subjects that would soon be lost forever, if not for the preservation of photography. I also create original paintings in Watercolors and Ink, Gouache, and Acrylics. Come view the world through my photographic lens as I capture unique moments in time.
Many images in my galleries...
