Please tell me about your interests in photography....

I'm passionate about Macro and find Mr. Davis' work incredible - big fan. Own several of Mr. Davis' books, including Creative Close-ups, Photographing Water Droplets, and Photographing Flowers. My favorite subject to shoot are droplets; dew, rain, etc. I'm working on my own droplet book and hope to self-publish soon. I would be thrilled to take a Macro class with Mr. Davis. His work is brilliant!

What is your level of experience as a photographer?

I have my own business, Kerry Joy McGehee Fine Art Nature Photograhy. Also, my Facebook page; www.facebook.com/KerryJoyMcGeheePhotography. I have very limited knowledge of PS, but am learning more each day. I process all of my RAW images in Lightroom - love that program! The last year has been a big leap for me and my work. I've been awarded with several honors including First Place in the LAA Spring Art Show (April, 2014), been selected for a couple of juried exhibits ("Fresh Works" in Pleasanton at the Harrington Gallery, and "Best of Botanicals" at PHOTO), and sold many of my photos. I am enjoying working with the software side of things, but still prefer playing with different lenses to achieve certain looks. I have much to learn and look forward to doing so with Harold Davis and his workshops.

Are there any specific topics or subjects in digital photography that you would like to see me present?

Yes, lots! Mostly on Macro work and nature. Would love to learn more about which lenses are best, and why. Also accessories, such as extension tubes and macro ring flash, and best tripods for those super low to ground shots. And, finally, Photoshop! I have a love/hate relationship with it and would really love to get rid of the 'hate' part :)

Introduction

I'm a self-taught, life-long photographer. Fell in love with cameras at age 8 or 9. I mainly shoot nature - that is my passion. I live in Livermore, CA (moved here in 2001) but am originally from Chicago.
