From dragons to photos to cartoons, you'll find it all here. ;) I love to favorite things not just because I like it, but also because I want to promote the artist! Some are sorely in need of recognition so wonderful are their talents!

Artworks I'd really like to buy someday. Unfortunately money doesn't grow on trees, wouldn't it be nice if it did? :XD:

Photography is a passion of mine and someday I hope to have all pro lenses. Right now, I do the best I can with what I have. I have learned a LOT over the years, and my skills have vastly improved. However, much improvement is still needed. Regardless, I hope you enjoy my gallery, and I give a lot of heartfelt thanks to everyone on deviantart who supports me with comments and/or favorites.

The deviantart community is awesome! :dalove:

About that girl in the photo:

Hi there! Call me Ami online.
I have Fibromyalgia, and sometimes life is VERY challenging.
I love God, believe in Him, and consider myself a Christian.

I love all of God's creatures. :heart:

Well OK...maybe not mosquitoes.

Current tools of the trade:

Camera: Canon EOS 70D
Lenses: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM , Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD, Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 Contemporary DC Macro OS HSM

About my photography: I only use natural light and rarely use flash. I do not use Photoshop and only do minor editing with either Windows Photo Gallery or Photofiltre (highly recommended). My style is extremely challenging because of this but I feel it is the best way to learn. My biggest tip to other photographers would be to get out there and photograph everything. Look above you and below you. The more you look around, the more wonders you will see.

Hello to all of my watchers...I FINALLY have some new photos for you, taken on all new gear!  That's right I have traded all of my Canon gear and switched to Pentax!  Why? I don't know, it seems to me I could never quite master the Canon so I decided to try something new entirely. I heard good things about Pentax and so I made the decision to try all new gear and see if that improved anything.

Well I guess you will have to be the judge of that!  I LOVE the 55-200mm lens I use now for the zoo shots, because it's so sharp!  Also this lens is spot on with the focus making my task so much more enjoyable and rewarding.

I still have a lot of learning to do and want to go to photography school or take self-taught lessons.  Another idea my brother had was to be an apprentice and learn as I also would enjoy learning to do weddings or pet portraits.  As for gear I'm slowly but surely trying to acquire a fixed lens.  I would like to have this for both zoo and bird photography.

Enjoy the new photos and please do let me know what you think! I love comments and favorites and appreciate every one of them!


-As always, no flash, no Photoshop  (just simple editing) and no lack of patience. I try very hard to get the best shots I can with what I've got to work with.  Please do check out my gallery and thanks to all deviantart watchers for so many entries in my 50+ folder!  I really do appreciate it.  :huggle:
