Known elsewhere on the Web as TheBlueRose, I am always working to learn new things and improve my photography skills. Also by blogging it, helping other DLSR newbies out there (if by nothing else, learning from my mistakes).
Living in scenic New Zealand, specifically in the South Island. Work in IT, and enjoy reading SF and Fantasy books, and am a somewhat lapsed member of the local SCA group where my persona is a 14th C merchants daughter. A big fan of food and cooking, and the eating thereof. When time allows I enjoy embroidery and crafts – check out my Handcrafts page for info and of course photos 🙂
Having had my camera for some time now, its become clear that the more I learn, the more I have yet to learn. Its a consuming passion but a rewarding one, and I continue to enjoy my journey down its path.
In Jan 2015 I started a new adventure by signing up for a Photo Artistry course, teaching me how to use Photoshop in creative ways. Have since signed up for the Awake Advanced course, learning much more and enjoying using my photography to create art in new ways. Having too much fun doing it!
I have two mottos in life:
Why Be Normal?
No Day Is A Complete Waste If You Learn Something.
Hopefully you can take advantage of all the learning I have done and written down here, love to have you join the madness 🙂
I am available for Photo Art commission work and can be contacted on lensaddiction @ gmail dot com
