Carol Cotton, Folsom Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement Hello! I am Carol Cotton. I am a Photographer/Videographer/Scuba Instructor. In addition to underwater images, I also do a lot of product photography and testing of photographic equipment. Macro, landscape, phases of the sun, nature, and animal photography are also of great interest to me.
I have been interested in photography since childhood. I studied Fine Arts at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and received a BFA degree, concentrating in Graphic Design. I began my photographic hobby/career with a Canon AE1 with assorted lenses, then quickly adapted to the world of digital images.
I have shot award winning photographs with point and shoot cameras from the Casio Exilim S500 and EX-V7, to the Olympus Stylus series 770SW and 1030SW, to digital SLRs such as an Olympus Evolt E330 and a Pentax K10D. The majority of my underwater images are from the Olympus E330 and the Olympus Stylus 1030SW. I have added a few other dSLRs to my collection ... an Olympus E630 and a Canon T2i. I have also been using an Olympus E-PL1 and hope to have an E-PL2 to test shortly.
Thank you for visiting my site. I hope you find lots of images here that interest you. Please check back often as I have lots of images to upload and even more to capture!
