Only the Lonely by Jane Ruprecht. All Rights Reserved. My interest in photography goes back to my middle school years when I belonged to the photography club. There I learned about composition, working the camera, and dark room skills. Of course those were the days of black & white film. While teaching I also worked part-time for 4 years at a Wildlife Art Gallery where I learned all the facets of art, framing, color, and matting. As an educator of 34 years, I enjoy traveling and my pictures reflect many of the unique places I have visited.
When looking for pictures, I explore nature and natural items in our surroundings and work at taking the ordinary and show it as significantly extraordinary. Always trying to see things from different and unusual points of view, I will lie on the ground or go places others might not go to to get the picture I visualize. As I take my photos, I work to crop and frame as I shoot, thus reducing the need for any adjustments later.
