My name is Ann and I am originally from a small village in Belgium (Niel-bij-As) which is in the province of Limburg near to the town of Genk. Since April 2000 I have been living near Vancouver in the province of British Columbia which is located at the West Coast of Canada. I moved to this beautiful area to be with my Canadian boyfriend (who is my husband now for several years). In these years that I have been living here I really got to enjoy the beautiful west coast. This got me going with photography, especially after buying my first digital camera in 2001, a Sony Mavica FD85 (1.3 megapixels). In the beginning I only took the usual vacation or snap shots and never really thought about composition, lighting, etc. After getting quite some wonderful comments on my photos I became more interested in photography and tried to "make" a better photo. I would think a bit more about the composition, how were the light conditions and such, but at the time the equipment wasnít really there to create stunning shots as my camera was a "point & shoot" with no manual options. But I did my best with what I had and I must say that some photos turned out quite good.
In the late summer of 2006 I bought a better camera which allowed me to use more manual settings and I have been able to take better photos. Of course itís not just due to the new camera that my photos are better, but also due to the amazing tips and critiques I have received from co-photograhers over time! I am no professional whatsoever, but I do enjoy taking photos very much. I love to take photographs of any kind of scenery, especially mountains, lakes and sunsets, but also city scenes!
I am happy to announce that I am now the proud owner of a Sony Alpha A200 DSLR since the summer 2008.
Thank you for dropping by and taking the time to look at my photos! Itīs very much appreciated!
