Announcement   About my photography: Photographic styles from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries... 35mm silver gelatin, lumen prints (solar photograms, a 19th century printing process), and a smidge of digital document the world as I see it. I'm interested in the timeless aspect of our ever changing world, and using old photographic processes helps me to achieve that effect. After all, we are the past.

About my music: As a songwriter, my tunes serve as musical snapshots of my world.

We order every year for our anniversary and this year's gift did not disappoint. The character in the lace and the sepia tone to the picture are just beautiful. Thank you!

I order every year from Natasha for my anniversary gift for my husband. Each year, she completely blows me away with her fantastic eye and creativity in the pictures that she takes for us. Pretty soon we'll need an addition on our house just to showcase her work! Thank you for capturing NOLA once again for us - we look forward to next year.

About

Smart ideas since 1972

Nattie Concepts is a (...a bit of a stretch..) play on words for "Smart Ideas". It's also a short description for my philosophy on life. Simply being alive is a smart action in of itself. How we choose to see and interpret our world is entirely up to us. Thats a gift I value and cherish.

As a photographer, I tend to document the world around me, the world as I see it. I'm drawn to places of long ago, when time seemed longer and simpler, and when we were connected by feeling, trust, & instinct rather than an electronic device.

35mm black and white photography is my first love. Its what I became interested in when I started working with photography in 1999. I learned how to shoot by how to print, so for me the two go hand in hand. I quickly became interested in alternative styles of printing, making solarizations and using liquid emulsion.

Years later, when I had boxes of discarded & fogged RC paper tucked away in my kitchen cabinets, I decided to recycle it in the form of a lumen print. This has become one of my favorites mediums in which to work. I find a lumen print, a solar photogram on black and white paper, is pure truth. Using only sunlight to imprint the image on to photographic paper, the natural and pure beauty of our world is revealed.

For my latest 35mm work, I have been touring the world with my photography, visiting such places as Poland, Athens, China, & Transylvania without ever leaving my home state of Louisiana. The idea being the world is only as large or small as you want it to be. I write a blog that chronicles my adventures, and I have made some triptychs for my Etsy site.

I am fortunate to have such a diverse outlet for my creations. I also create a photographic imprint of my world as a songwriter. Some of my witty ditties, musical snapshots on everyday life can be found at www. nattieconcepts.bandcamp.com

    I span the centuries as I document my world. From 19th century lumen prints, (solar photograms), to 20th century traditional darkroom practices, finally arriving in the 21st century with digital printing for reproductions. Truth is beautiful.
