Photographer ~ Donna from Photo Art




Her Shop ~ Photo Art, Her Blog ~ Photo Art

"I just love photography. In 1993, I took my first and only photography class while in college. It taught black and white photography and how to develop in a darkroom. This process was amazing and I actually became a little obsessed with it. Although everything in my darkroom is now digital, the process of art creation continues to provide me with exhilaration and peace at the same time.

I love shapes, composition and simple soothing color. These are definitely the things I look for when photographing a subject."
