Standing behind my camera is a captivating, almost magical feeling. I see photo opportunities in all walks of life. Capturing beauty has become my thrill.
Travelling has exposed me to tastes, sounds and cultures previously unknown to me. Journeys through Europe, North America have led me to call Canada my home for the last twenty years.
In the mid-70s I developed my very first picture which I still remember clearly. A black and white Smena 8 (Russian model) I used back then. This was my first introduction to the aperture, light, shutter speed, ISO and how these combined created art. Such manual photography experience remained my interest even when life took me away from this enjoyment.
The advances and digitalization of photography in combination with more free time after my children have moved out, I have returned to my long lost passion. This time however, awaited me was a manual book to my brand new SLR. I feel that I have conquered the major hurdles of this new machine though I openly welcome the lessons I still learn along the way.
I am most fascinated by nature including the sun, landscape, micro-images of flowers and the general wild life. I also appreciate the weather and all its characteristics. Historic sites and architectures are known to capture my eyes when the moment is right.
As my long enjoyed passion, I wish to share my art with others who find beauty in the still images I create. Therefore, your feedback on my art work is always welcome.
