Julie never gets tired of photographing nature, whether in still life studies using large film cameras in the studio, or adventuring outside with her digital camera. As a Fine Art photographer, her primary studies are in black and white and created into Platinum Prints, a printing process from the 19th Century. She creates contemporary compositions with a vintage flair. Using this beautiful printing technique makes an image look more alive and 3 dimensional because of the abundance of tones and fine detail, unlike any other printing process. Her color photographs reveal a sensitivity to our surroundings, focusing on subjects that many times go unnoticed or unappreciated. Her unique perspective can create an emotional connection to natures intriguing beauty.
