I use a Canon 5D Mark 2 with 17-40mm L, 50mm and a 75-300mm lens. I have always believed that It’s not about what equipment you use but what you do with what you have. You don’t have to wait until you get your dream camera to create great artistic images. My favorite subject is the wonders of nature. My favorite location is Yosemite.
I think there are several processes in creating photo art. first a desire and vision of what you want to create. I call it “My shot” of a particular scene.
Second there is “the moment” when you actually go out and take the image. This is my favorite part because I get to really be at these lovely places.
Third is post processing. I use Lightroom and photoshop primarily. I am really getting into Luminosity masking also. I love to perfect my vision with this process.
Finally the last process is “The Performance” when you show your work to an audience. This last process pays the bills and fills my creative tank to get inspiration to go out and do it again.
One Place… At One Time.

I find there are special places that bring me moments, one at a time. They are scenes that I have to stop and take time for. Places I have to BE at.
I truly believe that as humans we are given a gift, to notice and adore the beauty of nature. Without our “looking” into and “seeing” the wonders of this world, wouldn’t they be less artistic… and a bit less wonder filled? I think so.
