black and white photographer
I am not sure what is important to know about me, but here goes. I am a self taught photographer, no degrees or formal training of any sort.
I was born and raised in Appalachia, southern West Virginia to be exact. Have been playing around with photography off and on since the late 1970s. Since retiring, it has become a more serious hobby or avocation of sorts. I now live in the middle of North Carolina.
My mind sees patterns, shapes, shadows and abstractions, which I try to frame up into a standalone image. I find that color distracts from what I am trying to capture. I like the images to speak for themselves, the photograph is poetry enough.
I blog here about my process and to also post a few images. I have an ello site with more samples of my work under @camerazenscura, https://ello.co/camerazenscura
I also have a mastodon site: https://artsio.com/@camerazenscura
