I am Kay McBeath, a 58-year-old speech/language pathologist and non-professional photographer. Macro photography is my favorite genre, or you could say my obsessive hobby.
As a youth, I enjoyed taking art classes and painting in acrylics and oil. About ten years ago, I enrolled in photography courses in the journalism department of Arizona State University. Later, critiques from professionals at gurushots.com helped hone my macro photography skills.
My current macro shots focus upon flora, fauna, and man-made objects. Many of my nature photos depict subjects past their prime because I see beauty throughout life. My abstracts usually capture colors, textures, and forms created by weathering. Lately, I have found a treasure trove in dumpster exteriors.
