ABOUT ME

Janie.jpg

Welcome to my website.
 

Whilst I have always tried to take better than average holiday images, it was not  until I retired that I found a passion for photography. And only then when I was fortunate to get into a quarrel with a wave in Cornwall. I came off the worst, and the camera was a right-off but I  was able to buy a better camera and I have never looked back. For the last three years I've been a Nikon girl through and through and currently shoot with a Nikon D500.

I attempt to reflect the moods and beauty of the world around me and draw inspiration from around the coast and countryside of the British Isles. I prefer to take place rather than people and am particularly drawn to water and the play of light on and through water. I enjoy experimenting with different camera techniques as I am always looking for the slightly unusual or different perspective.

Increasingly I am drawn to intentional camera movement , multiple exposures and long exposures to create images that do not exist in real time and therefore cannot be documented but which show that the camera can be used as a creative tool to express emotion and demand interpretation.

I prefer to get images right in camera rather than spending hours on the computer. I do however print my own images as I believe in the print as the finished work determind by me and not by some computer screen or projector. And I get a real buzz out of discovering the differing effects that using different papers can bring.

 

For a challenge I undertook my Royal Photographic Society Licentiate Panel and was successful in the summer of 2018.
 

I am also an active member of the RPS and currently Secretary of the Visual Art Special Interest Group and a member of my local camera club in Northamptonshire.
 

I hope that you enjoy my images

Best wishes
