Kelly of Double Vision Photography specializes in landscape and nature photography.
* Why you love photography?
“I love photography because it is the only way we can stop time. It captures and saves the essence of the moment, light, line, shadow and form, for that split second, is mine.”
* Your favorite type of photography?
“My favorite type of photography is Black & White, the subject matter can be anything as long as the image has the full scale of tones as well as a true white and black. I probably lean a little bit towards landscape due to the fact that to me it is the biggest challenge to get a full spectrum high quality B&W print from.”
A funny or interesting photography story?
“I attended Brooks Institute of Photography in 1975 my professor for one class was Herb Boggie. Herb gave us our weekly shooting assignment and when it came time for review & critique he stared and stared at my photo; a photo of an old windmill taken about 50 miles from the campus just outside of Solvang, California. He marked the grade on the photo and then looked up from it, looked at me and asked if this was my photo, (anonymity of the student during the critique and grade session insured no bias from the professor) I said yes, fearing the dreaded words “reshoot and reprint”… he then held it up for all to see and said, ” 15 years ago one of my students shot this same windmill, same angle, same time of day, same composition… that student was your Father.” Oh and the grade? B+.”
* Photography tips or tricks?
“When shooting landscapes, look for the “natural path” that the scene provides and find the angle or attitude to enhance that. The natural path being (without conscious thought) the way your eye travels from object to object in the scene.”
* Comments about your web site design?
“SmugMug provides an excellent platform with all the tools to showcase our work. jR and crew are unique, they have a great attitude, they listen to you, they are not upset when you make suggestions or reject an idea, they stay focused on the task at hand which is getting your website up and running while maintaining the individual integrity of your ideas for the site. Price is very fair.”
