Hi, I'm Wendy,
Photography for me is about creating art on a digital file. It is the ethereal transference of what I see and feel on to a screen, then onto photographic paper.
I photograph from my heart and use the simplest of equipment and techniques.
I don't own any filters for my camera, I've tried a few, I dropped them, I scratched them, I fogged them up and then I threw them all away!
I don't have a drone, I have to stand on fence posts and climb up trees. I have bruised my knees many a time while using this trendy camera technique.
I am extremely impatient and often fail to use my tripod... I have come home with many images not in focus.
I cannot travel to those beautiful locations that Instagram abounds with. However Australia and New Zealand offer more than enough beauty and variety for my simplicity of style.
I photograph because I love to, it's that place where I am free to live and dream!
"You called me out into a spacious place, where I am free to live and dream, and run and not grow weary. (C3 Music, LA)
To what use do I put my craft??
Well I have my own home filled with black and white prints, coloured landscapes, and white snowy framed images. The fine art prints that I have on Bluethumb and in my Gallery are carefully chosen to bring a tranquil atmosphere to your home, minimal and stylish...misty mountains, pastel skies, running streams, dry dusty deserts and fields stretching to the horizon.
My history and homelife:
I began developing my own black and white photographs back in the seventies. Today I have a Nikon D800E and a Nikon D510 and I use Lightroom and Photoshop for my editing. I am self taught but do greatly value the payed and unpaid tuition and availability of information on the internet.
I live in an old seventies, Spanish style home in South Australia. You know the type, old arches and white render, possibly the ugliest house on the street, but hey I am working on that! (In great haste!)
I have one husband and a few children and a few more grandchildren, a caravan, and my camera gear. Our dream "To run and not grow weary, in that spacious place called life.
