I shoot with a Canon T2I and a Canon SH 60 HX. The point and shoot is used for birding because I can no longer carry the 400 zoom for a three-hour bird walk.

Mainly I shoot birds, orchids, flowers, architecture and sculptures.

I joined PSA to improve my skills in photography.

I am a Hairdresser and salon owner and still work full time. I have been enjoying and learning photography for the last three years. I began my hobby, taking photos of my daughter during her volleyball games.

I do enjoy many aspects of photography, but my passion is in wildlife. My husband took me and my camera to a beautiful lake and we came up to an osprey in a nest. This was the beginning of my passion for wildlife photography. My goal is to make friends and improve my skills by learning in PSA.

I am a member of a local camera club in Lafayette La and have enjoyed and learned a great deal. The group is Lafayette Photographic Society.

Looking forward to interacting with the group and improve my wildlife nature photography skills.

I am a retired consulting arborist and living on the Olympic Peninsula in Western WA. We have just moved here from CA and the abundance of wildlife and nature have afforded me the opportunity to start capturing wildlife along with landscapes. I have been an avid photographer over 50 yrs, and still work in a dark room for printing Platinum/Palladium prints as well as Gum Bichromate prints. I also print using a large format inkjet printer. I present my work at local shows and galleries. Despite having been a photographer for most of my life, the skills (both technical and compositional) for wildlife is something I wish to perfect and learn from my fellow group members. My software skills include Capture One, Photoshop and Lightroom. I am currently using mirrorless Sony FF cameras. Looking forward to interacting with the group.

I have been taking pictures since I received my first camera when I was 8 years old. I took pictures of people I knew and places I visited. As a teenager I traveled a bit and took many photos of the sites I visited. Taking pictures of architecture and cityscapes is where I found my niche and spent many years taking photos of the cities I lived in and visited. Street photography was an evolution as a result of my time in cities. Now that I am once again a country girl I am back to nature, people, landscapes and seascapes. And, perpetually learning about photography.

I began taking photos a couple of years ago and my passion has grown. I joined PSA to learn more about photography and to enhance my skill level.
