Since I was a child, I remember developing a sense of peace while being outdoors and in natural settings. In 2013, I began to respect that sense and capture beautiful nature scenes and animals through the lens of photography. It is the ensuing joy, excitement, and passion which motivates me to capture a moment to keep forever. Numerous people have expressed how certain photos are a blessing and encouragement in their own lives. This, alone, confirms the reward for my efforts of sharing captures through the lens.
Being in nature while taking photos reminds me of these two verses: "Be still and know that I am God" - Psalm 46:10 and "I can do all things through him who gives me strength" - Philippians 4:13. God is my reason for being and I praise and thank Him for every opportunity in this adventure.
Shutterfest 2018 - This is a photography conference and the first I have attended. It is founded by Sal Cincotta, one of the world's leading Wedding Photographers. Through this experience, I was honored to have many opportunities to explore a new avenue of photography, photographing human models. While it is not an area I ever imagined that I would partake, it was inspirational beyond my imagination. Galleries of Dina Lea Photography now include memories of these new captures.
