I have had an interest in photography since I was a child with a Kodak Brownie camera. As a young adult, my husband introduced me to the 35mm format. We've been fortunate to do a lot of travel. I have loved taking pictures of the places we have been. The great outdoors has always been my favorite subject - mountains and streams especially. Two years ago I got my first digital camera. Digital opens up a whole new level of creative possibilities.
This past year, I have really taken my photography very seriously - trying to improve both my ability to take quality photographs as well as learning how to improve them in the digital darkroom.
I have found our world to be a wondrous place with so many beautiful and interesting things to photograph. My goal is to become a good enough photographer that I can share the beauty that I see with others. I would like my work to inspire others to go out and experience nature first hand for themselves.
I have started a blog. (http://maryannmelton.blogspot.com/) You'll find information about my latests travels. When I go to photographic events, I blog about the people I meet and the things I learn.
