Five at Five – Cee Neuner Photography


This week’s Five at Five Intro features Photographer Cee Neuner. Cee’s About Page says:

The main focus of my blog is to have a safe place, a fun place, a creative place and hopefully build a community.

I am like a different person when I have a camera in my hand.  My world slows down and I can actually stay in the moment and discover all the marvelous things around me. 

Five at Five Questions

  •  When and how did you start on your photographic journey? 

I first fell in love with photography when I took my first photograph on my mother’s Brownie camera.  I just remember how good it felt in my hands and the photo I took I thought was perfect.  I don’t have that photo now.  But the feeling was what the memory is all about.  I didn’t get serious about photography until 2010 or so.  I never had the money for development of film.  So when camera starting being made in the digital format, I was truly hooked. 

  • What subject do you like photographing the most? 

Flowers of course. Second would be close ups of any kind.  Then I guess it would be animals or candid photography.  Since I don’t live in a big town, let alone city, I don’t get too many candid photos.

  • Have you been influenced by other photographers, if so by whom and why? If not, who is your favourite photographer? 

I learn from every photo I look at, whether on my blog, a magazine, book, etc.  I study what I like or don’t like about a photo.  And try to mimic what I learn.  Many of my teachers have been and continue to be bloggers.  

Chris and I will often stop a TV show and analyze the scene and discuss what we like or don’t like.  We find people who won photo contests and do the same thing with the winning photos.

Do I have a favorite photographer, probably not.  I know when I saw a show on Dorothea Lange, I felt connected to her in some ways. 

  • What is the go-to camera equipment that you use regularly and what software do you use to process your images? 

My go to camera is my Sony A7III.  It is a full frame mirrorless camera.  My go to lens is Sony E-mount 18-200m lens.  I’ve got other lenses I use depending on what I am photographing.  

I use Adobe Bridge – Camera RAW for 99% of my editing.  If I add text on a photo I do that in photoshop.

  • What is your favourite method of processing an image? (i.e., colour, monochrome, saturated, dreamy look etc) 

Basically most of my photos are in color. I like crystal clear sharpness most of the time.  In some cases I do use bokeh depending on my lens and what I want the photo to come out.  At times, I do like editing to black and white, when I photo will look good.  I find many photo (flowers) don’t look good in black and white.  Although there are some that are stunning.

  6. I don’t know Cee personally; we’ve never met, but I have admired her flower photography for several years.

    I smiled when I read that. I will pause a movie or TV show to offer up my critique of a scene that catches my eye. It drives my spouse, Bhavna, nuts.
