Jim Campbell joined MySLArt in 2011 and has been involved with the organization almost from the beginning. His passion is nature, animals and landscapes and you can see this in every piece that he creates. Jim loves to talk about photography and is willing to share his knowledge and even acts as a mentor and teacher at times. Digital cameras give photographers the freedom to take a lot of pictures and delete the ones that they don’t want to use. Even with this option, Jim is very precise in the way he takes his photos so that every image is framed just right, and has the right lighting and focus. He challenges photographers to get the image technically correct in the camera. This month he took some time to tell us a little bit about himself.

I had no formal training and in a way glad I learned it that way. Most of my work is in camera, very little time spent on the computer. I truly believe that the more time you spend on the computer making an image; the more that image becomes graphic art and not a traditional…Continue
