I am a walking, talking contradiction. I am a confident woman plagued by self-doubt. I am a brave adventurer who is afraid of new things. I am a smiling, happy person who does battle with Depression. I am a soft, gentle soul that has too much anger inside. I am so easy to please but never really satisfied. I could go on and on like this forever….

I’m Laurie, and I am in love with photography. Some might even say I’m a little obsessed! I love losing myself in it. It lets me disappear into my own little world for a while, and, along with Photoshop, it lets me attempt to express myself. Sometimes the best way I know how to do that is by doing self-portraits. Other times, I feel a landscape or a flower can speak very loudly. And I also love shooting people and coming up with unique ways to show their personal beauty. I know that I’ve definitely come to see the world in a whole new way since taking up photography…and I appreciate and love nature more than ever.

It took me a long time to find my true passion…and I found it only after losing something else….but this is it.

I graduated from the New York Institute of Photography. I also took a Photoshop class and loved it!!

I appreciate you taking the time to check out my work, and I look forward to seeing all of yours!

Please also visit my gallery at Fine Art America, here, where you can get much larger prints.

Confused!! /Update!!!

Okay….am I crazy….or has everything changed here again as far as RB’s format? My home page is completely different again, and I can’t even figure out how to just see everyone’s comments on my images and their replies to my comments on theirs…and I can’t see how to find who’s favorited my images….etc. etc.!! All I can see is the default activ…

Help with bubble site???!!!! Please!!!!!!!!

Sigh. / So, for the last few days, all of a sudden, I’m not able to add any work to my bubble site. When I try to drag an image over to the appropriate category on my bubble site, that image thumbnail freezes up and gets left hanging in a weird spot. It doesn’t go back to its place in the list of my works, and then when I go to my bubble site to see if it’s been added, despite…
