Photographs Reflecting the Beauty and Love of God
By Veronica DiSarro Lufbery
I enjoy taking beautiful photographs of flowers, birds, butterflies, landscapes, and a wide variety of subject matter. This year, I added abstracts because they are different and I find them inspirational.
At 8 years old, I received my first camera. My grandfather taught me about composition, and sometimes I still feel his presence helping me. I also learned about the history of photography in school and fell in love with it. I was assigned an extra credit report in a science class, researching the entire history of photography in detail, as well as the color spectrum. After that I wanted a 35mm camera, which was my high school graduation present. Learning how to use the darkroom was fun, especially manipulation of the photos. Seeing the photos come to life before my eyes in the darkroom and now in digital software is the greatest.
I am an active member of Wallingford Camera Club, East Hartford Art League, Glastonbury Audubon, and Glastonbury Art Guild.
As a participant of the Spring Art Fest (East Hartford Art) every year, I have won various awards for my photography and excellent use of color. I have also won other awards, like a 3rd place ribbon from Glastonbury Audubon in 2014 and then was asked to help with judging in 2015.
My photographs hang in the Wallingford (CT) Mayor’s office as well as a local doctor’s office. I plan on exhibiting my photographs at other libraries and places of business soon.
