How Dragonfly Photography came to be...

I don't consider myself a professional photographer - I don't have the training and I'm not really interested in all the technical "stuff". What I do consider myself is an "Image Creator/Moment Capturer". My process is simple, I just picked up my camera and starting taking photographs. In the beginning, most of them were just so-so. Then I started paying attention to composition and light and focus and slowly developed my technique. That's when things started to change - my photographs became something more than snapshots. I have been told I have an eye for capturing images and I'm happy with that. I do rely on post-photo processing. Some people use chemicals and paper - I use the computer and I'm alright with that.

Dragonfly Photography would never have happened had it not been for my husband. You see, a couple of years ago my husband gave me a digital camera for Christmas that I could take with me when I walked the dog. There are lots of lovely gardens in our neighborhood and I wanted to have a camera along with me in case there were any ideas I wanted to steal/incorporate in my own garden. It was helpful to have a camera along to capture the image instead of trying to describe a garden.

So, here I am several years later with all these photographs that I get to share with people who are actually interested in looking at them. Thank you for all your views, comments and for all those photographs that you "favorited" or included in a treasury. You don't know how much I appreciate that.

Lastly, after all is said and done I've only taken my camera with me on a few of my walks. The dog hates it. Hates that I stop and spend an inordinate amount of time in one place. Walks are for walking! The only other living creature that is worse to bring along on my photo safaris is my husband - he can vocalize his impatience where as the dog is resigned to suffer. You can't have it all, right?
