To Filter or Not to Filter

I have recently added trendy filtering to my portrait toolkit.  I have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed by the over 18,000 options that I was given when I began my research.  My intent is to not have these presets take away from the authenticity of the images, but to significantly enhance the depth of the portrait.   If used correctly, the layers can change the story of the portrait.




Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo

A Walkabout at the Zoo

Omaha’s Henry Doorly zoo was proclaimed by TripAdvisor in 2014, “world’s best zoo”.

I am so humbled to call Omaha home and have access within minutes to our zoo and aquarium to enjoy year round.  On this walkabout with my photography coach, Mark Fountain, we were able to walk “Kingdoms of the Night’, “The Lied Jungle”, and “The Butterfly Exhibit” all in winter month of January!

If you haven’t been yet, be sure to check out the zoo.  It’s more than worth the trip.
