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. You can read a little more about my life and history HERE
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 hope is you find a place to look, read, rest and think upon the good things of this earth.
I'd love you to check back on occasions for fresh ideas and new prints, or sign up for my blog if you would like to stay in touch.
