In case you needed proof that sunrise is one of the best times of every day, from last Sunday morning with Kevin Bessat, Arnaud Bathiard, and Emmanuel Le Guellec at "my" lake. :)

A processed image from less than a week ago is pretty astonishing. Heck, lately having a processed image from me within a year is pretty amazing. ;)

Yo pienso que hemos olvidado mirar en el corazón de los hombres y pienso que con ello hemos perdido la maravillosa oportunidad de conocer a Dios, ahora nos hemos quedado solos, áridos desiertos, quien nos enseñará a amar nuevamente?

Good News for PC Users

Macphun are offering a PC version of their limited time XXL Bundle so that you can benefit from all the educational materials offered. :)

The creative kit software is still Mac only, so not included in the PC bundle, but you get all the videos, ebooks, PC compatible presets, software, discounts and other educational materials from the bundle. Including my Africa with Athena video! :)

Comp Stomping?
I see a lot of whinging lately about people taking landscape photos that look like other people's photos and that not being fair, blah..blah..blah. Really?

Go live life. Take whatever photos you want, whether someone else took something similar before or not. In the end, it's not even the photos that matter in your life, it's the experience. Live it.

Want to take photos that look like mine? Great. Come on a workshop with me. I'll take you right to where I took them and even tell you how.

For this one, you'll have to come to my house and shoot out my office window. :)

Macphun's creative kit is by far the best photo editing plugin package for photographers using Mac computers. For a limited time, you can buy it at a discounted rate and receive a bundle of photography educational materials as well, including my Africa with Athena video. If you don't have the creative kit already, this is an offer too good to miss. :) But hurry because it's a limited time offer.

If you decide to purchase, please use the above link. This allows you to help me out by giving me credit for your purchase. ;)
Thank you for your support. <3 
Creative Kit XXL is a photo creativity bundle that's different from any other. Get photo software, e-books, tutorials, guides and more with over 90% discount.

Why Black and White?
“Why would you drain an image of it’s vibrancy? Of the life that color gives to our lives? How does doing this make an image more or better?” I've shared my thoughts about why we should at times shoot for monochrome, over on the Visual Wilderness blog. :)

Thanks Athena for the interesting article. Sometimes I just try switching to b&w in post if the colours don't quite work. Maybe I should think more about it at capture time and find b&w subjects specifically. Is there a b&w screw-on filter I could look through? ;-)

Fine Art Landscape Photographer
Introduction
Landscape and Portrait Photographer in Geneva, Switzerland

Background:
one woman, a camera, the world...

It feels as if I have been a photographer my entire life...  

My interest in photography was sparked at age nine, when my parents sent me overseas with my mother's small point & shoot camera to visit my godparents.  It was a little box shaped camera with flash cubes that burned out after one use.  I loved that thing and took many photos of my adventure.

In the many years since then, I have moved on through many cameras, various photographic genres, and different medias. I truly enjoy everything photographic - from long exposure landscapes, to artistic portraits, to abstract macro art.

To share my love of photography, I teach courses locally.  If you ever have questions about any of the photos I post - just ask.  I'm happy to share.
