Every now and then I am asked specific questions that pertain to my photographic art. The following tend to be the most asked....

Q. What's in your gear bag

A. I have been a Nikon gal since I began my journey into photography, but recently switched paths and transferred over to the mirrorless Fuji X series. I use my Nikon gear mainly for still life shots and my Fuji gear for outdoor and composite photography. I also heavily rely on my phone and believe that iphonography is a legit tool to use in photographic art. 

Q. What is one peice of gear you cannot live without?

A. That is a tough question because I love ALL my gear, but I would say my tripod, back-up batteries and SD cards, and my heavy-duty camera bag are all things I have missed when I left them behind. I also have several apps that I love to use when I am out on the field... LUX Meter, Adobe Capture, Camera +, Simple DoF, and Sky Map. 


Q. What program(S) do you use to edit your photos?

A. Adobe CC is my main go-to editing program. I begin the editing process in Lightroom and end in Photoshop. I also heavily rely on Topaz and the NIK collection for postproduction work on my composite imagery. 

Q. where do you take classeS?

A. I currently seeking my BFA in Graphic Design/Mass Communications/Photography/Art, but the mass of my knowledge in the art world was self-trained by trial and error. However, when I finally found myself in a spot where I could not figure out a specific technique I plunged right into reading books, watching YouTube videos, and began my journey at CreativeLive. I am a huge believer in self-education. 

Q. Where do you purchase design elements?

A. I really believe in supporting other artists in their journey so I tend to resource my design elements from Etsy and Creative Market, unless I can find a direct website for an artist I love.
