Five at Five Questions

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

I started photography at 70 years when I retired in 2013. 2. I’ve never taken any classes or studied other photographers. I learned by asking a lot of questions of fellow photographers and joining my local Sierra Camera Club that has juried competitions. I’ve learned so much by having my photos critiqued.

  • What subject do you like photographing the most? 

I enjoy most photography subjects. While I don’t do formal portraits, I do enjoy environmental portraits. I love getting out to do landscapes whether country or urban. Macro is a favorite.

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

I have been influenced mostly by the wonderful local photographers in the Sacramento, California area. If I had to name a well known photographer it would be Ansel Adams. I love black and white photography and have learned a great deal from looking at his work.

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

Two years ago, I switched from Nikon to Fujifilm. I use the Fuji XT3 and edit in Lightroom and various plugins like NIK and Topaz.Photoshop is too complicated for me, but I do use some tools.

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

I don’t do much processing. I start with Lightroom and then go into the plugins. Using the filters I try to create the mood I want. I’m not very creative or artsy. I process photos in color and then if I think the image is a candidate for black and white, I put it into NIK Silver Efex. Sometimes when I want to pull out details in a color image, I put it into NIK Color Efex. Photoshop is great for sky replacement. I use Topaz to make sure my image is super sharp, especially with wildlife. That’s about all I do. I truly don’t have the creativity or artistic ability to create dreamy or other artistic images.

Photography is a great outlet for seniors, keeping us mentally and physically active. A bonus is the friends you make along the way.
