Teresa grew up loving nature. It was hard for her mother to get her back in the house to eat and sleep after a whole day playing and exploring the neighborhood. Not having a camera when she was young meant that she brought home almost every creature she could carry. Most times without her motherís knowledge. By the time she was in high school she started to get into photography. By using a camera to capture pictures of a creature she eliminated the long walks back to the house holding who knows what. In the early years, film cameras where the only way for her to preserve her memories of nature but that meant she had to be selective about the photos she took. Not seeing the photo at the time it was taken became expensive and little experimenting took place. When she moved to digital cameras she began to hone her skill almost daily with little worries of the cost.
At the beginning Teresa experimented with Photoshop to edit and enhance her photos. Later she wanted to provide photographs that were true to what the camera could capture. There are various settings in a camera that can produce different effects and she does experiment that way some. When taking a photo she attempts to get the best photo each and every time. That doesn't always work out. It does help her for future photos.
Besides providing her photos for viewing pleasure and sales she also uses her photography to illustrate childrenís books she writes for her grand nieces and nephews. Possible future sales of these books may also be offered.
Teresa has used her photography in other ways such as weddings, senior pictures, baby pictures, commercial photography and various other ways but capturing nature is her true passion.
Nature calms her and provides her with the true meaning of life. Teresa hopes that her photos provide you with what you need when you see them.
