Creating Symmetry With Your iPhone

Symmetry or asymmetry? Which one most often attracts your eye? I recently read an article on How to Find and Create Amazing Symmetry in Your iPhone Photography on the iPhone Photography School Blog. It really got me thinking which way I “see” the world!...

About Me

I am an artistic photographer with an eye for color, line, and composition.  I’m always looking for new ways to tell stories with my photos. I am skilled in post-processing using both Lightroom and Photoshop to make my photos more artistic and pleasing.  I have an Elementary and Special Education dual degree from the University of Northern Colorado…but these days I use my teaching skills to help beginning photographers learn how to compose better photos, process them digitally, and tell their stories visually.

What I Do

So, let me guess.  You found your way here because…

  • You’ve lost your mojo and can’t seem to get inspired to take interesting photos anymore
  • You want to figure out how to put more emotion into your photos so they will connect with your viewers to tell a story
  • You would like to learn how to use photoshop to make your photos more artistic, but learning photoshop scares you

Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality truly is.

Photo of the Day

This week’s photo was captured by my very good friend and mother of our God-son Erik, Leila Preston. We have known one another for many years and have many interests in common including being Pastor’s wives, weaving and photography. She and her husband have just retired and took a special vacation visiting several National Parks in Utah and Colorado. This photo was taken in Canyonlands. What a beautiful vista of God’s creation and a great landscape composition with great foreground interest. Well done, Leila.

I would love to have your photo on my homepage…
