ME AND MY CAMERA
by Kirsten Woodforth APP M.Photog.
Introduce nature inspired artwork into your home or any space with enriching single captures of nature...create calm or time to reflect in a personal space...get in touch and let’s create that space with inspirational Feathery Fine Art with Buzz!
This ‘4thwood’ photographic style is influenced by the early botanical flora & fauna illustrations of the 17th & 18th Century. There is an art to depicting the behaviour of Australia’s flighty birdlife & native bees. The technique takes patience and the perfect conditions, I aspire to introduce nature to the uninitiated through fine art photographic artwork. Photographing the elusive flighty and feathered in their natural habitat creates awareness of the importance of Australia’s native birds & pollinators. Explore my site and you’ll find that I focus intently on nature, all single capture images with a '4thwood' style to help you see the raw simplicity of nature's buzz.
