Welcome to my Better Photo gallery. I've enjoyed photography since my college days (the late 70's) when I used a Canon 35mm. I began shooting digitally several years ago and now use a Nikon D70. My love of flowers and gardens grew from my early childhood where I spent many happy hours in my great-grandmother's flower garden. I take the art of photography seriously and can at times be a "purist" when it comes to technique. However, I also love to create and push the pixels around in Photoshop, so you will also see a variety of digital manipulations and assemblages alongside my "straight" photography. I hope you'll enjoy the virtual flower garden I've created here. If you'd like to see more of my work, please visit my website, Patsflowerphotos.com with the link below. Prints are also available for purchase there. I hope you enjoy your visit!
