Wife, nature lover, tea drinker, bookworm, and hobbyist photographer - that's me, Wendy May!
I'm a natural low-light photographer. I adore deep colours, tones and shadows and my shooting and post-processing style is very much geared towards such. My favourite genres are still life, nature and macro photography. Occasionally, I shoot with whimsical images in mind purely for a bit of fun and variety. I consider my whimsical images a reflection of my day-dreaming childhood, when I used to pour over beautifully animated fairy tale books and films and soak up all their gorgeous rich colours and whimsical details. Tee hee, Walt Disney and children's books have a lot to answer for, lol!
"Don't just shoot what it looks like;
shoot what it feels like."

Describing my photographic voice, I would say it is old-worldly, moody-atmospheric, and slightly ethereal.

Then when you know better, do better."

Why I blog
My blog is an online photography journal - somewhere I record what I'm currently learning along with many of my favourite images. I'm a sucker for quotations and these can be found sprinkled throughout my posts as well.
- A bookworm and usually have 2-3 books on the go at the same time. Not bad considering I strongly disliked reading growing up, preferring to look at the pictures in books rather than reading the stories and information! 😆
- Ambidextrous and can write backwards (left hand) and forward (right hand) at the same time and vice versa.
- Left-handed.... but I'm not alone! My husband, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law and sister-in-law are all left-handed, and so are my 3 step children!
- Introvert with extrovert tendencies, i.e. I enjoy the company of others, but equally enjoy time on my own (to recover, tee hee)! 😂
