About LucKy Seven PhotogRaphy
I have been interested in photography for most of my early life, an interest that continued to grow throughout my teen and adult years. My first real break came when my parents bought me a digital camera for my high school graduation in May 2006. Even with this new technology, I was unable to really get out and use it until July of that year when my father and I went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. After spending two hours shooting the daylilies that were in bloom, I came home to discover that I had actually taken some wonderful shots, and thus, I was bitten by the photography bug.
I consider myself to be a macro nature photographer as I enjoy to shoot close-ups of the subtly beautiful side of nature. I've grown up surrounded by nature as I was (and still am) a Girl Scout. I've always loved being outdoors and I feel at peace when outdoors surrounded by the natural beauty that is our gift of Earth.
I continue to go to the Botanical Gardens regularly as well as other sites around St. Louis and the surrounding area. Now, I am trying to juggle my time between college, work, and normal everyday life, but I still manage to make it out to shoot at least once a week. Currently, I'm going to school to obtain a degree in photography and hopefully that will lead to a promising career in the future.
In Decemeber 2006, my work was featured on CNN as part of CNN's iReport project. The shot, which can be seen
About My Equipment
For the majority of my newer work, I use a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT with an 18-55mm lens. I shoot on automatic in portrait mode. When I'm feeling a little more daring, I do shoot in manual mode with the same lens and some macro filters attached.
For some of my other shots, I use a Canon Powershot A610. I'm currently using a Bower macro filter with 10x magnification for some of my newer macro shots.
When I'm feeling adventurous, I'll whip out my Nikon N2020 35mm SLR. When using that, I use TriX400 speed film with my 75mm lens.
