“Featuring Ruth Douillette. . .”

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a camera, but it wasn’t until 2007 when I got a digital camera that I was freed from the idea of “wasting film.” I began shooting all the time—never left home without my camera. Such fun!

I began by shooting anything that caught my fancy, but found I was particularly drawn to light, lines, and shadows, and the often “overlooked” parts within the bigger picture. Often I let the sun point out the shot.

The freedom to learn the best camera settings and experiment with photography on my own worked for me. Eventually I found the Plymouth Digital Photography Meet-Up group and the Hockomock Digital Photography club. I enjoyed the social component of like-minded people and learning from them.

Shooting with groups broadened my perspective and opened my eyes to the unique ways other people shoot a scene and increased my awareness of my own specific vision.
