Robin Gross: Photographing Passion


“My late husband and I combined our passions in photography and nature to produce creative photographs together. In our search for the perfect picture, we traveled widely, from Europe to Australia and to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. But our favorite photos were taken right in our own backyard. We enjoyed butterfly gardening and encouraging all kinds of wildlife in our gardens. I recently moved to a smaller residence where I have tried to recreate some of the highlights of our garden in my beautiful new courtyard.
 

“I use a Sony A55 DSLR camera. My favorite lens is a 16 to 300 Tamron that I use in the courtyard. I have a  Minolta 500 fixed lens for birding. I use Lightroom for photo storage and basic post processing. I’m experimenting more with creative ways to enhance images using the camera rather than post-processing (such as rotating the zoom in the photo with leaves). I also enjoy experimenting with techniques and software that give photos an impressionistic look and feel.

“Since retiring as a social worker, I intend to spend more time photographing. We built a website and I am writing a nature/photography blog on the site. See www.backyardadventurephotos.com. Discovering and photographing nature’s beauty brings me great joy.”

    Robin,
    Your pictures are stunning. Observing Birds caring for their young has always moved me. Your close up shots of all these beautiful creatures along with the creative photo of fall leaves are very special. Thank you for sharing.

    Robin, these are all so very beautiful. I confess to partiality to the mating skippers and the birds feeding their babies. The cardinal father seems to be keeping a watchful eye on you. Thank you for loving and sharing this precious and badly needed biodiversity.

    Photography is a true art form. LOVE is all here is. From one backyard photographer to another, it’s LOVE fuses the lens to the heart!
    Robin’s photography truly captures, The Music.
