About Melinda B. Shiflet
I am very much an amateur photographer who is looking forward to learning many other ideas and new skills from others who contribute to this artistic medium. As an artist by passion (school teacher by trade), my primary creative outlets have been pen and ink renderings, as well as music. I just bought my first digital camera almost four years ago, and anymore, I don't leave home without it. Much of my subject matter tends to revolve around our travels, my family and various photo ops right around our "little slice of paradise" in the Shenandoah Valley. I am married to a wonderful husband of nine years, and have a four legged "child", who is a very sweet and timid Calico and Tabby mix, named "Angele".
