My first introduction to photography was through 35mm slides as a child in the 60s. Next came little pocket cameras, then a Polaroid SX-70 where we watched in amazement as the camera spit out the photo, which then developed before our eyes. In the 80s it was zoom and macro photography with a 35mm camera, and now, of course, on to digital with all the cool editing and effects.
Almost all the photos in my shop are taken here on our farm where we raise cattle and sheep and sometimes a little corn. Most of my subjects are photographed just as they are, and since this is an actual working farm, you'll see dust, rust, scratches, and mud. I've learned that you can find beauty in all kinds of unexpected places.
I also enjoy giving some of my photos an artistic painted or vintage look by working with the editing capabilities of digital…
