Marla Wilkes, Oracle Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement I'm a professional photographers. I'm disabled but it doesn't control how I live. I've seen the world around me in a different light & I want to capture every thing in photos. I enjoy everywhere I travel to on my motorcycle.
I'm traveling the state of Arizona & photographing all of the National Parks and Historical Sites. I hope to publish the Photography Documentary books on the National Parks.
Besides taking photos for the books. I'm also traveling to different areas of interest & beauty and photographing those areas. And capturing those special shots for individual prints.
My camera is a: DSLR Sony A350
I am a native of Tucson, Arizona
I give each of our photos special attention so that the details are sharp & clear. As well as making sure everyone can see the colors in our photos as we see the scenes before taking the photo.
I love to create art with our photos & using Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 with various plug-ins I have, I also use PhotoPlus X2 & Photomatix (HDR tonemapping).I can create beautiful artworks with our photos: HDR photos, Photo within a Photo, Black & Whites, just to name a few.
