About Diane McElhaney

I was not born an artist, nor a photographer, but I've always been creative and full of ideas. And I do mean ALWAYS -- in very many ways. Ideas and creativity are not a problem for me. TIME is the problem (so if I'm writing this now, I need to write it well, because the TIME is now).

I've had a life of many exciting experiences - be it travel, school, family, my son, and so much more. If I had TIME to write a book, it would be so packed full of chapters that one couldn't put it down. I kid you not! There's been so much good and knowledge that's come from the my multitude of experiences. I'm all settled down now, and happy to say so. I am married to a wonderful man, I'm a proud homeowner, mother, and small business owner. Because I enjoy so many aspects of life, I spread myself very thin. There is always, (always!) more than enough projects to keep me busy -- if not overwhelmed! But that's me. I can't NOT be busy.

How I got into 'photography'. I've always had an interest in photography -- since the 70s, as a teen. My first camera was....(drum roll please)...a Polaroid One Step (Instant camera). Boy, were those things fun, and all the rage! Then when my son was born in 1986, I had some cheapie Kodak - the pocket kind with the square 4-sided flash cube. Talk about horrible pictures In the late 80's-early 90's, I tried my eye using a Pentax 35mm (can't recall the model, but it was a nice one). THAT was a great camera. Talk about great photos! Crisp, clear, and true-to-life color film. I never did have professional photography training, so that era was all trial and effort - but I didn't do too badly. I was (and still am) proud of the shots I took then, even if most were basically family and 'good time' shots.

This may sound odd to most, but back in 1999 I sold my first item on eBay. That means I bought my first digital camera. I believe it had 3 megapixels? It was a Fuji something or other. But digitals were still rather new on the market, so.....BRB
