Cathy @ Work

It has been quite a while since I updated this page, so let me tell you about myself and what I have been doing.

I have been taking pictures for over thirty years and it has been my primary occupation for the last ten or so. The majority of my early work consisted of nature scenes with some sports and editorial work and a little bit of portraiture. These days, I am doing more portraits and other people pictures while still trying to find time to get into the woods or wander in gardens with my cameras.

Please see my Portraits page for some samples and for more information.

My pictures have appeared in various regional and national magazines in both editorial and advertising uses, and I have been selling pictures as fine art prints for more than a dozen years. I have had solo shows here in Northern Virgina, and I also have started participating in the Falls Church Arts shows again.

Photography is a passion and an avocation. I have little formal training in photography or other graphic arts, but I have been lucky enough to shoot with some very good photographers and in some wonderful locations. New Hampshire's White Mountains are a favorite destination for fall colors, and my native Virginia Piedmont shows up across the seasons and styles I have looked to photographers like Adams, Rowell and Wolfe, and to painters like Cézanne, Monet and O’Keefe for inspiration.

My primary cameras are Nikon DSLRs. I am currently using the D800, D750 and D500, and I hope to replace the D800 with the D850 in the next week or so. I use Nikor lenses, with the 70-200 2.8 being a favorite for sports and portraits. I do also use a Fuji X-100 when I want to travel light, and of course, I use my iPhone from time to time for the photos you see here or on my Facebook page and other social media.

Over the last several years I have completed my transition to the digital darkroom. Back in the traditional wet darkroom days, I printed on Cibachrome, and I still have a few of those Cibachrome prints in my collection and available as framed prints. Most of the prints in my current stock have been printed on my Epson 3880 printer. With current inks and papers, the Epson printers produce beautiful prints that testing shows should last for a long, long time. See the discussion here for more details, or check out the Luminous Landscape web site for news and discussion about the papers and printers.
