Oakley

A blogger and foodie with pension for photography, Oakley brandishes her Samsung Omnia and Nikon D40 at anything and everything in sight.  However, she is a bit of a purist when it comes to photography.

Partly because she started off her interest for photography with her dad’s 1976 Pentax ME into which films need to be hand-cranked.  Partly because of her USC film school training back in the days where you shoot everything pure and true.  Partly because Oakley believes that what you capture *is* the moment; editing that image would be like altering reality.   There’s as much poetry in those lost moments as the ones captured.

So, 98% of the time, her photos are free of digital manipulation.

That’s how she rolls.

  3. Beautiful photos! I am the bad girl in the group…I love to manipulate the photos…it’s creative play for me. I love that everyone has their own style here…this is going to be awesome!

  4. Yep everyone has his/her own style. That’s why we’re going to get along famously. 🙂 Thanks, ladies!
