Digital photography has allowed me to express myself in ways I never dreamed possible. I favor close-ups with nature and love exploring the cameraís features (such as depth of field) to blend backdrops and create compositions not otherwise possible. Factors such as time of day, light, and moisture all make the common, ordinary subject appear simply gorgeous.
Iím grateful to have discovered this passion as a West Michigan resident, where the seasonal changes bring on added dimensions to my photos. Flowers, especially tulips, capture my attention, but so does everything else. I find myself visiting the same boulevard again and again every year, never tiring of seeing the same flowers in a different perspective. I wonít go anywhere without my camera.
