Brenda Hartman, Renton Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement I have been doing photography for a little over 2 years now. I am self taught, via the many photography books I have read. I get inspiration and guidance from the manager of the store I buy my photography gear from as well as my family, and many friends at a site called fotki.com. My local Starbucks coffee shop allows me to display my work in the shop for sale. I love being out in Nature and around animals. I have a Nikon D300 with a Nikkor 18-200mm VR lens, and a Sigma 10-20mm lens,and a Sigma 105mm Macro Lens. My next lens on my wish list is either a 500mm prime lens or a Sigma 50-500mm lens.
