I like the simple, serene, stark...or spectacular color. I feel as though photographers "see" the world in an unique way - seeing both the big picture and the smallest detail. I am partial to close-ups & water - dew, rain, reflections & bodies of water. There is something tranquil about water...I live in a beautiful area & most of my photos have been taken at or near my home. If I'm not behind the camera I'm either gardening or in front of the computer. I hope to become a better photographer and welcome feedback in order to achieve that goal. I'm in the process of developing my own business & web page. I live in middle Tennessee with my husband of 27 years, we have two children, 2 dogs & a cat. Besides photgraphy & gardening, I also write & speak in small group settings, and I have a soft spot for youth (14-20). Thanks for stopping by my gallery and let me know what you think - ALL feedback is welcome.

Bio

I currently use 3 different cameras. I have had a Canon Rebel for almost three years. I won a Samsung NV7 in a photo contest and just bought (july '07) a Canon 30D. I use three different Canon lens - 18-55, a EF macro 50mm 1:2.5, and a EF 75-300mm Zoom. Before the digital cameras I used a Nikon 35mm SLR. I love a beautiful photo & enjoy browsing the galleries posted at BeterPhoto. I live on 3 beautiful acres outside of Lebanon, Tennessee. I discovered all the beauty nature had to offer by taking long walks with camera at the ready. My favorite things to shoot are stark, simple, & serene or spectacular color- in any combination - the best is when I feel an image contents at least 3 of the four. I hope to improve my skills and would like feedback. I've been married for 27 years (to the same guy). He buys my equipment for me (gifts). We have two kids- boy 19 and girl 14 - the girl is already showing some interest in photography!
