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.
It is often the natural and uncomplicated things in life that move me to photograph, a field of long golden grass and you hear the swish of the sheaves swaying, a gentle slope of snow which catches a wisp of pink mist in the early morning sun, I listen...the sound of the cold air is like a heaven sent whisper, some tall trees wherein I hear the sounds of eternity in the canopy of needles. Dappled light, I hear music, I see foamy waves, I hear thunder, I smell the heat of the day, I taste the ice of a frozen morning, I could go on... I don’t look for the complicated or most sought after icons of this world, I look for the things that bring a normality of peacefulness and a feeling that everything is going to be alright.
I photograph because I love to, it's that place where I am free to live and dream!
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.
I'd love you to visit again for fresh ideas and new prints, or sign up for my blog if you would like to stay in touch.
