Valerie Cooper, Jacksonville,FL Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement My love for photography started almost 30 years ago, when I purchased my first 35mm camera for my eighteenth birthday. Since then, I have expanded my interests to the world of digital photography and digital art.
Now, that love has turned into a passion. It allows for so much more creativity to flow. I hope you enjoy viewing my “Photo Art” as much as I enjoy creating it.
Photo Art - Where photography meets technology.
In these galleries you will see a menagerie of different art work, some touched with a unique flare of creativity. I have photgraphed various scenes including
beach, flowers, zoo animals, birds, marine life, night sky, and sunrises to name a few, and then applied several different artistic techniques to a few of those images to create what I like to call "Photo Art" "Flower Art" "Beach Art" etc...A few of the photos where originally shot using a 35mm Cannon Rebel and others using a Cannon digital Rebel XTi. The computer programs I have used include Paint Shop Pro X, CompPuPic Pro, Picassa, and even PowerPoint. I find that variety is the spice of life when it comes to creativity.
