About

Leilani

Hello! how are you today? Smile

My name is Loren and have been exploring my creative side in photography over the last few years and developing my own style. My photos may not be technically correct, but I love the mysteries and beauty of life, thus using photography (with either minimal digital manipulation or blatantly obvious manipulation) as an art medium to translate what I see. Hope you like them too, comments are always welcome Wink

About

I am an established freelance web designer within the Holistic World with over 10 years of experience and 7 years running my own business. I have many facets - logical as I like to understand how humans and non humans tick - to creative which covers many areas from traditional crafts such as soap making (yes you did read that right), to writing which is another of my great passions like photography.

Photography is the visual form of writing for me so many words and emotions can be relayed in an image and when I am not on my best form which is often due to having M.E. and Fibromyalgia (causes extreme tiredness and lots of pain); it takes me out of that world, giving me a sense of normality. Smile

Being a positive spirit at heart, I hope my images will inspire people like myself showing them that life does not have to be all doom and gloom if you suffer a debilitating illness or disability; extending beyond those realms, to all who view, given them an insight what I see and hopefully invoke within them meaning to this often senseless world. Smile

Thank You Brian for your kind comments! I know exactly what you mean and if I voted it's because it caught my eye and earned the click! Smile
Hi Loren, always noticed your name cropping up on my pictures. ( well some of them.) i don't usually check out peoples portfolios because they vote for me, don't wish to be part of a click, and hope I merit the vote on the photograph alone. Anyway waffle aside I love your portfolio. Technically its excellent but also the range of subjects makes it just about brilliant. Well done, keep it up. Brian.

Thank you Stu very kind of you to say so! Smile

Just keep going with your feelings - which I can see your already doing! Smile
Your portfolio is incredible Loren, you have so much to look at that interests me such as the vivid colours and the way you seem to make each photo so interesting, your close up work especially as it is something that can hold you for a long time taking in all the detail from the shot,as a beginner I have loads of ideas and know the kind of shot I want to take but lack the experience (at the moment) to get em,keep up the fantastic work. Smile

Thank You Spikey (Andy) I learn by others and put my own twist on it, see what works and what doesn't. You will often find that there are those who only judge your photo on photographic levels, then there's people like me who see more than just that. Just don't get discouraged by anyone's comment or suggestions, they are only trying to help as long as it's not blatantly rude. You are your own artist at the end of the day, and aspiring to others is good, but you want people to like your style not a carbon copy of others formula Wink That's how I look it anyway...heehee Smile

Hi Loren
Thankyou for your comment on my photo. I have only recently taken up photography and I find it a very addictive hobby. You have some outstanding pictures one day I will hopefully be as talented as you.

Best regards
