A photo is so much more than that object that gets left in the drawer. Think about it: history, family, love, beauty, emotion, education; all of these can be represented in a single photo! Think about all the beautiful scenes, animals, flowers, oceans, skies, big and vast or tiny and detailed, all things that we might not have ever seen if it weren’t for someone who had been there and taken the time to photograph, develop and share their view!

My hobby has become a passion, especially in the last year! I have received no training, I learn by reading, practice, enjoying other’s art, and getting feedback from mine. I love trying to see things in a new way. I enjoy the way light can bring beauty to a scene that is otherwise dull & lifeless. Finding images that make people dream, think, care, and smile – that’s what I desire to do with my photography!

Please, stroll thru my images and enjoy my views shared with you!

Help, please!

I’m trying to figure out how to get higher resolution images. I think where I may be making my mistake is when I export my pics out of Lightroom. There’s a spot where you can choose how many pixels per inch, right now I have it set at 720. Does anyone know how high that can be set? or how you determine what number to put in there? / I take all of my pics in RAW format and upload th…

Refining Taking Place!

In more ways than one! Not only are my photography skills being refined but I just went thru all my RB artwork and refined 28 pages down to 16!!! / It was fun to see how much my photography has changed from the time I started RB until now! Some of my work was downright embarrassing to have on here! I’ll wait a while and probably go thru everything again and delete even more! / I figured I…
