William Buse, Milwaukie, OR Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement How it started:
I first started in photography as a child, using the Kodak Instamatic camera. I later moved up to the film 35mm SLR camera and learned how to take advantage of the SLR world and how to use the various camera settings to improve my photographs and to be creative through the use of camera settings. A few years ago I made the move to the digital SLR camera world and the ability to experiment and to be creative without concern for film and photo processing costs.
How I do it:
I combine my love of the outdoors and of nature with photography, always looking for photo opportunities when I am out. I also look for photo opportunities that are unique to the time of year, such as the spring flowers or the fall colors.
