Karen Messick is an award-winning photographer. She has been capturing images for 19 years. Her sense for design, color, composition and placement of subject elements is striking. The patterns in her nature close-ups are refreshing and energizing. In addition to traditional photography she has embraced imaging with High Dynamic Range software, and artistic adaptations of her images with plug-in software.
She has led photo workshops in Baltimore, Delaware, New Mexico, Virginia, Washington DC and Ireland. She has lectured on composition and design during Photo Week in Washington, DC and for Nature Vision’s Photo Expo in Virginia.
Karen has written instructional articles and had portfolio pieces published in iPhoneLife Magazine and Nature Photographer Magazine.
