Embracing life, freezing time and staying focused, while immersing myself in the beauty of each moment as it unfolds through my lens, keeps my spirit in a state of flow; a feeling of being one with the 'Universe'....Mary Lou Chmura
Hello and WelcomeÂ to, 'Mlcfineartphotography'.Â My name is Mary Lou Chmura aka. 'Lou' for short.Â Â
My passion for photography has been a lifelong passion; is immeasurable and resonates from a place deep within.Â
Although, my passion for photography is immeasurable it is not my only passion by any means.Â
Having struggled for a good part of my life with communication and effective ways to express my inner world.Â I have developed Â a repertoire, so to speak of creative and artisticÂ modalities which I am extremely passionate about. My creative portal consists of photography, writing, drumming, drawing and most recently the art of public speaking.Â
IÂ also am inspired with collage, mixed media, the art of zentangles, and calligraphy.Â In other words there is no shortage of creative interests as I find these are all ways to artistically express our innermost thoughts and feelings.
That being said, I find that using photography as my media gives me a vantage point; by simply directing my lens to the point of view I would like to express and focus on.Â Â
Being mindfully aware of whatever draws me in; whether I am chasing the light, capturing a feeling or experiencing an emotional reaction, allows me to create a vision for my composition.Â Â
As like many of my passions, I see photography as an art form of spiritual meditation; allowing my spirit to connect with the universe; the difference being the beauty of life unfolds through my lens.
It's the simplest acts of nature that we all take for granted that seem to draw me in; observing a small ray of light, or watching a flower as it gracefully unfolds to the morning sun, has a way of speaking to me on a soul level.'
Thanks for stopping by....Happy Creating and Hugs to all,
