Tina began shooting with her first camera, a Nikon FM1, some 40 years ago. She put her cameras aside when her career in technology became all-consuming. After retiring to beautiful Kiawah Island (South Carolina, USA) in 2000, she revisited her love for the lens and fully-embraced the world of digital cameras and creative post-processing. She has been published in a number of magazines, including The New York Times, The Post and Courier (Charleston’s major newspaper), and Camera in the Wild – the magazine of the Carolina Nature Photographers Association. She is co-editor of Naturally Kiawah magazine and serves on the board of the Kiawah Photography Club.
Her blog Travels and Trifles, focuses on her love of travel, nature and all things beautiful.
Tina is a published author/photographer. Books by Tina R Schell
“Nature has a way of showing us the importance of detail, whether it be in the curve of an oak’s limbs, the color of a lily pad, or the heart of a flower. The photographer’s challenge is first and foremost to be aware and become a part of his or her surroundings, and only then to capture and share the experience.” – Tina Schell
Note from Exploring Colour: When ‘Water Lilies’ was published a couple of months ago I loved it! If you visit the original post you can view the complementary photo ‘Lily Pads’ as well … these two photos together are magnificent!
