I am often asked, do I use a camera”?
Yes, I do! And I have a lot of fun photographing a number of things, although for my art, I do use it to capture wildlife.
I don’t often run into a wild animal that is willing to pose for me. A lot of my photographs are the tail end of the story,
jumping thru the underbrush or disappearing over the hill. I rarely get a photo of wildlife that is posed perfectly.
This is where I have to insert a rather important statement. Know more than the camera. *Underlined twice!
I have taken comparative anatomy workshops, sketched at the zoo, observed wildlife in their own habitat, studied,
taken classes, taken workshops and read. I feel very comfortable moving legs, adjusting ears and tails and creating
expression. So, if I don’t get the exact photo, I can create my own pose.
