Daphne Sampson Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement I am a mother, wife, golfer and dog lover! I have been taking photographs since I was a teenager. Having been dyslexic, reading and learning were a challenge for me. Photography, on the other hand, was something that I could do by myself with no help. It gave me independence. I love looking into the lens and creating beautiful and unusual images that I want to remember forever. There is beauty in everything and all I want to do it capture it!
I enjoy photographing my two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Maximus and Isabella, the Blenheim. They give our family unconditional love. I cherish knowing that they are my steadfast, loyal, devoted companions.
With my camera in my hand, I walk around looking and feeling the beauty around me. When it comes into focus, I snap the shot. Photography is very important to me and my family. It is fun, relaxing, and gives all of us great joy to share these wonderful visual experiences.
Now, I am exploring the world of digital art in Photoshop CS5. I have been know to have a dramatic flare in my thinking and I am a profuse day dreamer. Now, with Photoshop CS5, I can use my vivid, electrifying imagination for creating pictures that I hope will fascinate you as much as they do me.
