BetterPhoto Member: Mary N C. Taitt


member since May 18, 2005

I enjoy photographing things that intrigue and upset me: life, imagination, the people and things I love. For me, photography is an art and a record, a challenge and creative play. I photograph an eclectic collection of flowers, nature, barns, churches, scenics, etc. I look for images that resonate and surprise, that are artistic or heartwarming. Though the photographer and not the camera takes the picture, it is difficult to take an outstanding image with shabby equipment. I love Photoshop--for me, the final image is the goal. The better the first image, the easier it is to get there.

I've been taking pictures since I was a child and had a primitive darkroom.
