My Bio

Laurie_color Welcome to Laurie Merritt Photography! So, where would you like to go today? Plenty to choose from! Photography is where I am most happy!! I enjoy the new and extraordinary within familiar and unfamiliar worlds, to find beauty and grace in the sometimes ugly and scary, to continually broaden and improve my skill sets, think creatively and stay tuned in to my once sleepy but reawakened right brain, and above all – learn! Observation, composition, lighting, capturing stunning, simple pleasures, stumbling upon unexpected treasures… Photo retouching and/or scanning and retouching film or slides have fast become another source of creativity and enjoyment; yet it remains difficult to part with my camera equipment. Put simply, I love this medium! Interests: this land of ours, enormous vistas and minute details, reading, music, hiking, nature, animals and creatures, travel, the great outdoors, photo restoration, scanning and retouching film/slides… and, as you’ll readily notice across my site, I avoid fitting into a particular niche in the world of photography! Images posted on this site or in my blog are created, produced and copyrighted by me and are available as prints or license for personal use or commercial use.
