Hi! My name is Deborah Kolesar and I have had a passion for travel photography since the early 1980s. I love to travel and I love to photograph these travels.
I am totally into digital image making. Film was always so expensive that I'd be afraid to 'take the shot' and experiment too much. Now with digital there's no restrictions except the size of my hard drive, lol!
I shoot with a dSLR, currently a Nikon d80, in RAW format so I never have to rely on the camera's jpeg conversion and the lossy compression that brings. I love Photoshop CS5 and Corel Painter 11 and Lightroom 3. Using these programs I am able to bring about my vision for an image. I love shooting High Dynamic Range (HDR) images and panoramas and am exploring my right brain creativity by creating digital paintings from my photography.
Check back often as I begin to upload my favorite images. Hopefully you will enjoy them too.
