Hi Everyone

I am a little late with our April Featured Member.  Computer issues and such - but I think it is all straightened up now :)

I have picked a wonderful member of our group for our feature this month though.  Gigi50 !   An awesome artist and an awesome person.  Here is what she had to say about her work -

"I was always passionate about photography in Nature from my 20's on
but never really got into it after my children were teens, as they also develop some interest it got me involved more and was always fun to do family walks in the forest
and spot special little treasures of nature, as my passion develop and my Children
introduced me to the wonderful world of Deviant Art ~ then it was full speed ahead
Moving away 3 years ago from family and friend and sort of gave up my career in hairstyling, I became more involved in taking nature walks and wanting to get
better in this field.
With the wonderful help of many friends here on DA I learned about taking my camera
to a new level from Automatic shooting into using other functions with Aperture and shutter speed instead,
Paying more attention to lighting and focus and a low ISO (100) made such a difference
Thank you you guys and Gals You know who you are :hug:
I was encouraged to take a photography course and again learned so much more
Last year along came the learnings of wonderful world of Photoshop for post editing and so much to learn in there, I think its impossible to learn everything there is available in this program, okay well unless you start at 16 :giggle: I am quite far from there :giggle:
Who inspires me ~ Mother Nature and the wonderful deviants on Deviant Art :blowkiss:
Always open to learn more!"
