Hi, I'm Linda. [Netgarden/soulswithin]
Nice to meet fellow lovers of photography. I made this forum for anyone who loves photography, and also so local people in Orange County can schedule local shoots, meet others and share photos of our area. We'd love to see shoots from your day!
I am a member of Photo Deviants Club of Orange County, California. Also a lover of the nature here in Orange County. My two favorite hang outs are the
SJPonds in Irvine and Back Bay. Bolsa Chica is also a great place nearby for shorebirds and raptors.
I use two main cameras, a Canon 20D, 40D and numerous lenses, [too many, lol] and also a smaller sony V1 for infrared photos. I use mainly Paint Shop Pro for photo editing, and do this for a hobby, mostly. Have spent 5 years in digital art, off and on.
My favorite things to do are photographing nature, night scenes, infrareds and still life. I love birding and the beach/surf.
Here's my smugmug albums: http://netgarden.smugmug.com/
You can purchase my surf photos here, just click on sessions to see the photos. :
My most loved lenses are the canon 24-104L IS and the 300mm f4 IS. Using numerous lenses for macro. I really enjoy B&W's and Infrared.
