Week 9 – #A1 In A Bowl


Bowl of Daisy's White Bowl,Yellow Daisy's

In July of this year, I took a Focus Stacking workshop at the LWRDPC.  I’ve been intrigued with this process ever since. Yesterday my good friend Joseph Heil had some fun using Helicon Software to focus stack a bowl of daisies.  The helicon software makes this process a bit less tedious and I love the results.  The sharpness of the image front to back is amazing.  Those daisies looked good enough to eat!

What inspires a photographer?  My journey began taking product photos for my business.  I had a company that provided fashionable headscarves to women and girls with medical hair loss. Photos needed to be updated constantly and the expense of a photographer led me to my first camera about 5 years ago.  I’ve since sold the company but my love for photography has continued to grow.   I’m constantly looking for new places, people, food, new colors – just about anything and everything appeals to me through my lens.   Suddenly light shapes, colors, textures, people, buildings, trees, flowers…. everything around me looks different when I start to see the world as a photographer. For me, an image captures more emotion than your native eye or a written word.  Lingering on images that I have taken and reliving the scene, person or thing is like reading my favorite story over and over again only with the benefit of a visual companion.  I love to study the light and the composition and see how I can tell the story through the lens.  Everyday objects can be exciting when I think of them as capturing a moment in time. Once I started to notice details I realized there was beauty all around me.   My photography allows me to share my perspective with others; it allows me to tell my story and for that I am grateful.  As the lens opens to capture an image, so do my eyes.
