WithInSight Gallery Artist Profile

Photography has been my passion for decades, starting with film. When I inherited a Nikon D50 in 2008 a few years ago, I used the camera's auto program until I started taking photography classes. I found the new technology scary and confusing. Since taking the Photo I, II and III classes and several others at Richard Stromberg's Chicago Photography Classes, I believe my skills have improved significantly and learned to become more creative. I continue to learn and am thankful to be surrounded by so many talented photographers who began as I did.  I thank the school for this opportunity to showcase some of my work.

The theme of this project is “Impressionism.” The images technically reflect “in camera movement.” Realizing that I was shaking my camera when using heavier lenses, I decided to take advantage of this anomaly and get creative. The surrealism of the photos lends a bit of mystery, though the subjects are easily recognized. The photos in the show were all taken in camera and post-processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.

All the photographs are archivally printed on Epson Legacy Baryta paper. I chose this paper to bring out the colors and depth of the images. I hope you enjoy them!
