I am becoming passionately involved in photographing elderly people. It brings me a huge amount of joy. I *love* their expressive faces and eyes: so much wisdom, often so much compassion. They have lived a long time and it shows, and they have so much to teach us. If this interests you at all, please critique my efforts so that my portraits will improve. Thank you.

Bio

I have been shooting snapshots since I was a kid and always loved photography. About 10 years ago, I became even more interested and got a Canon Elan SLR which I really enjoyed, but then I developed vision problems so I had to give up photography for a while (thankfully surgery was successful).. Besides our Bed &Breakfast there some are other historic buildings (we are the “oldest town in Texas”) as well as many beautiful churches that I would like to photograph. My real passion, however, is photographing elderly people – there is such character and wisdom in their faces! For me, it is pure pleasure to photograph them -- but I need to learn a lot more in order to do it well.

I lived in NYC (Manhattan) for 33 years and loved it there, but am now semi-retired. I am helping my mother run our historic B&B in East Texas, and want to learn to take good indoor & outdoor shots of buildings -- it is harder than you would think!

Currently, I have a Canon S2 IS, which I like for its long lens and Image Stabilization. I also have a point & shoot camera, a Casio EX-Z120 that I carry in my purse everywhere I go. I am taking a Better Photo course and hope to improve my pictures. Meanwhile, I am saving to upgrade to a DSLR, probably the Canon 20D or 30D.
