Welcome to My World of Divine Captures



_DSC2016Hello and welcome to my new photography website!

For those of you who are familiar with me and my work remember me from the blog I used to showcase on blogspot.com called Lights! Camera! Action! This blog is still up and running as you see, but I plan on deleting it after I establish this blog.

Love for the Camera

I launched this blog because I want to take my photography to the next level in the way I display my images and take my photos. My love for photography continues to grow each day. I always loved photography especially in the days when I used to shoot photos with my 35-mm Olympus OM-10 film camera and develop the images in dark rooms in high school and college. Now I own a Nikon D5300 in fiery red equipped with the 18-140 mm lens. (I own an 18-55 mm, 55-300 mm telephoto, and 40 mm macro lens.) Many photographers still love film and developing their images in dark rooms, but I wouldn’t trade digital for anything. Digital photography is so versatile. There are so many ways to manipulate your photos and improve them with photo editing software. The moment you take a photo you can upload it to your computer and on to the web. And the technological genius of the latest DSLRs surpass anything a film camera could ever offer—at least in my opinion.

Going Pro

I’m a full-time editor-in-chief for a national nutrition magazine so I thrive on creativity. I assign and edit articles, choose photos, and manage a pool of writers. I’d like to one day relinquish my editing duties and become a full-time professional photographer for a magazine or advertising agency—even run my own portrait studio one day, or at least work alongside someone who does.

As you browse my gallery, you’ll see that I specialize in landscapes, wildlife, and macro photography, but I’d like to master studio portrait work. I want to learn more about lighting and flash photography so my indoor photos will look great. Do any of you professional photographers out there have any advice for a novice like me? I’m willing to listen to your feedback, so please leave me a message below.

In the meantime, grab a cup of coffee, tea, or whatever you’d like, and visit my site, starting with the Home page. Visit my blog, view my images, and let me know what you think about them, how I might improve them, and how I can break into becoming a professional photographer like many of you.

Thanks so much! See you around in cyberspace!

    Hi Judy,

    I just checked out some of your landscape shots and they are beautiful! I specially like how you’ve composed most of them.

    What a pleasant surprise. Your pictures are beautiful. I love all the portraits of you, your family and especially the Hampton crew. I wish you much success with this new venture.

    I’ve loved your photography for over 30 years. You make the most basic scenery look absolutely gorgeous!! Many, many blessings to you as you pursue your dreams with your God given talent. If I come across any portrait studio photographers or information that will be helpful to you in any way…I will send it your way!

    Hi Judith! Thanks so much for dropping in on my blog and leaving your sweet, encouraging comments. Your photos are amazing…I love the pink sweet peas (have gotten up close and personal myself with this gorgeous wildflower) and especially love the one on the beach! I had the 35mm back in the day and took tons of photos with it for years then let my DIL borrow it for her photography classes and then the digital age was upon us. I still use my Sony Cyber Shot point & shoot until I find an affordable DSLR. I have recently discovered that my old Pentax lenses (I have three) will fit and can easily be used on the new digital cameras! I am so excited… so now I am looking for a Pentax K series body to put them on 🙂 I will still keep my trusty little p & s…it has done me well all these years! Again, thank you for stopping in to see me!

    Thank you for inviting me to the grand opening! Everything here looks fabulous! I wish you nothing but the best with your new adventure! I tried that route for a little while and decided that wasn’t for me and went back to just pure love for photo taking without having to answer to anyone! It is just one those things you need to try out for yourself and see where it takes you, right? Any way, I enjoyed my visit very much and of course we’ll be back! Take care and CONGRATULATIONS!

      Hi Kim,

      What a nice surprise! How did you find me on wordpress? I haven’t officially promoted my blog to the world yet because I’m still working on it. Trying to perfect it. But I will check out CreativeLive. Is this a website?
