CATHY BELL PHOTOGRAPHY
I joined a photographic club, as there were some awesome macro specialists in the group, and his was the first step in a very steep learning curve. Most of the photographers were professionals or very advanced amateurs and had cemented their genres. The generosity and sharing of knowledge in the group was such a gift to a budding photographer. Through these very special people I was able to take their wisdom and gentle criticisms to heart. Each aspect of my photography was looked at with great interest allowing me to grow with an ease of mind and joy of heart. The willingness to share their time and great knowledge helped me step into other genres. Landscape was still the genre in which I had the most difficulty. I just couldn’t see the patterns in the shape of the rocks, trees and the movement of the waves.
