"A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY" by Connie Mier
Connie Mier specializes in photography the Florida Everglades and Biscayne Bay from a canoe. This former KCC member, will provide a "Different Perspective for your Photography".
"My art is inspired by my canoe explorations of the wilderness areas of south Florida. I often spend several days at a time in the Everglades exploring remote places seldom photographed. It is with a camera that I attempt to re-create the peaceful solitude that I experience in these places and believe so many people desire to feel. With an artistic vision framed by the camera, my goal is not to simply illustrate a picture of a bird or a mangrove tree; rather, I seek to provide the viewer a perspective he or she has never seen before. I want them to imagine the peace of being in that place or the joy of watching a beautiful bird. To that end, a successful image is one that best represents my wilderness experience and invites the viewer to observe more closely with a deeper appreciation for nature's art."
