I've always loved looking at nature, drifting along with the ever-changing clouds, stopping to smell the roses. God's creation gives an abundant and ever changing variety of subjects for me to capture. I enjoy photographing all of nature, from the wide vistas of mountains and valleys, right down to spiders, butterflies, and dewdrops.
I bought my first camera, a Canon AE-1, in 1979, and practiced and experimented and asked questions. I still ask questions and read blogs; but I've never taken a formal course or workshop. I switched to digital in 2000, which allows more experimenting, with instant feedback, so I can correct a shot immediately. My current camera is a Nikon D-90, with a 28-300 and a macro. Although I'm digital, I don't use PhotoShop to skew the photo. I believe in capturing the scene in as true a form as I can, because what God has created can't be improved upon; it is wonderfully creative as it is.
My training and career are in music education, with a Master's degree, National Certification, and 24 years in the elementary general music classroom. In addition to teaching, I also play tuba and sing in my church choir. I'm polishing other creative outlets, as well, which we'll speak of later.
