Sterling Heights, United States

Welcome!

My name is Kathy and I live in SE Michigan. Love most photographic styles; however, I have been working as a portrait photographer.

Main equipment and software that I use:
Canon T2i DSLR
Lenses: Canon 55-250 IS and kit 18-55mm
Flash: 430EX II

Nikon D40x DSLR
Lenses: Nikkor 55-200mm VR (zoom); 50mm f1.8G (prime); and standard kit lens
Flash: SB40 bounce

Adobe Lightroom 3.6 for my photography.
Nik Efex System

For my art:
Adobe Photoshop 7.0
Adobe Elements 10
Corel Paint Shop Pro X3 Ultimate
Topaz Bundle
Vue 9 Esprit (3D)
Bryce 7 (3D)

Sometimes I integrate my photographic images with the 3D work that I create, whether it be as a background or in the form of materials overlaid on objects; and render together. I also create mixed media forms of art using my photography and my 3D work.

If you find something here that you like and you would like it altered (with or without text) to accommodate a different need, just drop me a note via BubbleMail and I’ll make it available for you pronto (within 24 hrs).

I hope you enjoy your visit and I look forward to your comments.
Peace,
Kathy

in Mixed Media:

of my photographic images, always a portrait style since it happens to work best for me through the lens than landscapes. My current favorite:
