How the winning photo of the "Flowers" contest was made
By lynnslenses in Photo Contests on Jun 25, 2021
I am beyond excited and honoured that my photo was chosen for the May 2021 “Flowers” monthly contest. All the entered photographs were outstanding and I thank everyone so much for your nominations, votes and support.
My interest in photography started with my Grandfather’s box Brownie. When I got my first real job after University, I bought a Pentax ME Super SLR camera. It served me well in my “week-end” photography pursuits for 30 years, before I decided to enter the digital world of photography.
Choosing to stay with the Pentax brand was a no-brainer for me. I bought my K20D in 2008 because it felt great with all the controls easy to reach, I could use the lenses I currently had, plus it was the only camera (at the time) with weather-sealing.
I now shoot with a Pentax K-3 and photography has become more than a hobby for me. Living in the southern Foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada, there is so much beauty and wonder to inspire me. I don’t really have a genre: I love to shoot whatever nature presents: landscapes, wildlife, close-ups, macro, night skies and I have even done a little work with portraits and street photography. I also love travel photography and am hopeful that I can enjoy that again soon.
