Photography for me is a way to release my creativity. For years I used paint, pen, and paper. Several years ago, I discovered the art of photography. Being who I am, I had to learned everything I possibly could about the camera and photography. I signed up with New York Institute of Photography and after about 18 months become a graduate of NYIP. I am really glad I need. They taught me about the camera, inside and out. I learned about exposure, shutter speed, aperture, and most importantly lighting. I learned how to make an ordinary object look extraordinary by using different lighting techniques. I am still learning new things today. I study other photographers and their techniques. With the growing technology, photography will keep growing and expanding also. I am grateful to be a photographer today. Although, many people say there’s not a lot of money in photography, I beg to differ, this art form has many avenues and many ways of being extremely profitable. One just has to be willing to keep learning and exploring the many changes in the art.

Greeting that flapper is a neighborhood in transition. Revitalized in 2009 by the opening of the High Line, the Meatpacking District is now home to upscale boutiques and eateries (prices might actually be similar to those on the Upper East Side, though the hipness factor is higher). Needless to say, the few remaining meatpacking warehouses lining Little West 12th Street look a wee bit forlorn, like bums crashing the…

Hello world!

This is my first attempt at Blogging. So welcome to Debs Art Designs blog.

I hope to use this as a avenue for photographers and artist to share ideas and talk about their latest projects. I’m super excited about a couple of upcoming photo shoots I have planned. The first is June 28 and I’m calling it splash. I plan to post a few photographs afterword and welcome any critique.

It's the little thing in life that make me happy.
