I'm not saying I have skill, I just enjoy what I do. I take pictures of my everyday life. The little things that catch my attention I try to bring to light for the rest of the world to see. I love looking through a lens and seeing the details come to life as I noticed them come to life. I don't edit very many of my pictures, but the ones I do I make sure are marked so people aren't mislead. I shoot with film only (35mm) and zoom/macro/micro lenses as necessary. I do take what I do seriously, but I'm also serious about enjoying my hobby. Thank you for your interest!

A word about my photography: I try really hard to make my work as realistic as possible, unless my intent is to make it look abstract or surreal etc. I do edit my pictures on Photoshop, but only to achieve the exact image that my eye captured which sometimes is beyond the ability of the camera. I do not try to make changes to my work to make my pictures look better than they actually are. The integrity of my shots is very important to me. To that end, I always say when I have edited a picture, but I generally don't do very much outside of enhancing the saturation, hue, etc of a picture. Some people think I'm not being straight with the pictures I take as a result, or that my work has been "Photoshopped" to a degree that is unrealistic. I don't mean to offend, I'm simply trying to reach what my eye saw originally or what my artistic side begs. For that I cannot be apologetic. I only hope you understand my intent and enjoy the work for its own value.
I've been doing a lot of editing lately. That means I must have been doing a lot of shooting too! My camera has been busy, and so has my new copy of Photoshop Elements 8! I'm very excited to see the new options I have now, and I can't wait to share them with my Watchers. Super excited about the pictures that will be being posted soon!

Also, I've been working with a friend on branding, so I will hopefully have my very own watermark and business logo to put on cards and such! I love my life, my friends, and am so very thankful for the opportunities I have!!!
