Hi! My name is Lisa and I am interested in getting to know a great group of people who as passionate about nature photography as I am!

What would your "ideal" nature photography group include?

Ideally, I'd like to be in a group with individuals that share the same focus and dedication to nature photography as I. I'd like to be able to share tips & tricks with one another and inspire each other to always be improving our nature shots. I'm looking to have fun and go to some new nature places Ive never been to before. I typically have gone to the same places over and over becasue they are tried and true but want to expand the look and background of my photos!

What inspires you about Nature Photography?

I love the colors! I love shooting in the natural light. I hate flash! I am really an outdoor shooter and also like that you cant always set up a great shot when shotting little critters up close. You have to be patient and focused to get that one really great shot and I really enjoy the feeling of getting that great shot at the right time!

What kind of Camera and Lenses do you use?

I have a Nikon D5100.

What is your experience in Nature Photography or Photography of any type?

I enjoy shooting landscapes, and macro photography involving flowers, insects of all kinds especially butterflies. My focus lately has been on macro. Come spring I'd like to begin shooting waterfalls.

Please list some of your Favorite Nature Spots in Illinois?

I LOVE the Chicago Botanic Gardens, Morton Arboretum, Cantigny Park, Starved Rock State Park, Brookfield Zoo, & The Lincoln Park Conservatory.
