Featured Photographer - May 2014

Stephanie Billings I'm Stephanie Billings, one of RCC's newer members. My interest in photography started in 2005. I had been on my second mission to South Africa (SA) and volunteered for the photo legacy project we had. We would go into homes and photograph families. Many of these families had at least one member who was suffering from AIDS, and these pictures were the only visual memory that would be left behind. In 2006 while I was in SA my father died, and my young grandchildren struggled with "when is grandpa coming home". My mother gave each of the two younger children a picture of my dad, and we would find them having conversations with these pictures. That's when I realized how important pictures are!! In 2006 I bought my first digital camera, a Canon Rebel, and that's when my love of photography really started. Since 2007 I've had the opportunity to tell many people's stories through photographs. And that's what I love most, telling a story with a picture. I love taking pictures but I know that there is something lacking in them; they don't pop! I joined RCC because I feel that I have so much to learn, and the best teachers and mentors are the ones who want to share their own experiences and talents. I now own a Canon 5D Mark II, Photoshop CS 5 and a few pieces of additional equipment. So I'm already to go, I just need direction!!!!
