Allow us to introduce you to our October Customer Spotlight:
Diane is one of our great customers from the Crestwood location.
I have been taking pictures off and on since high school. It is priceless to have many pictures with such precious memories especially with loved ones that are no longer with us. It is often fun to find a new or old picture for family and friends.
My passion is taking Hummingbird pictures and getting to know the subject each year as they return in the spring. Some of the Hummers are comfortable with allowing the camera and I to get pretty close to them. Others are skeptical which is a bit of a challenge but very rewarding once I am able to get closer to them. It is an awesome experience, and each summer gets better! I can’t wait to see what next summer brings with this new camera.
I also love photographing the ocean with a beautiful sunrise, stunning sunset, or a good moon shot. Another favorite, is taking group pictures at functions. It truly captures the era and is always fun to look back at.
I recently traded in a Sony a6300 mirrorless camera and purchased an Olympus E-M1 MarkII at Creve Coeur Camera. This Olympus camera is one of the fastest for shooting sequential so it is perfect for capturing Hummingbirds which are the fastest birds in the world! The Olympus has opened my eyes to seeing things I have not seen with other cameras.
I am looking forward to taking classes this winter to understand the camera better. I enjoy spending time in the winter reviewing summer pictures and enlarging them to display in our home. It is a wonderful way to rekindle those happy moments.
A special thanks to Phil at Creve Coeur Camera who helped me find the right camera for my specific situation. He encouraged me to take classes, practice with the camera, bring in pictures that did not turn out as I expected for them to analyze which was a tremendous help, and do not rely on autofocus to get the most out of the camera.
