I have always done portraits and rarely ventured into the world of landscape photography. That has recently changed. It all started with a Lanterman’s Mill Christmas Card for my mom. Now that I am back in the Youngstown area, I have a lot more opportunities to photograph the areas around town. My dad loves hiking in the park and I have joined him with my camera. Not only is it a great chance to location scout for portrait sessions, but also to capture the beauty of the Youngstown area.
It has been a lot of trial and error learning landscape photography. It is a completely different animal compared to portraits. And it has been a good excuse to pick up some new gear, as well as dust off photography gear that I typically do not use. It has also been a great opportunity for me to do something completely different from portrait photography.
Below are just a few of the images I have recently created. All images are from Mill Creek Park. I especially love the area around Lanterman’s Mill and it has become a mission of mine to capture the old gristmill from various angles and times of year.
I have never been a fan of Winter … the snow, the cold and the shorter days. But this year, I am actually excited for a few good snowfalls after the first of the year to create some Winter photographs of Mill Creek Park and other areas around Youngstown. I have recently joined Fine Art America and have my landscape photography for sale on their site. You can view more images, as well as purchase canvas, art, acrylic and metal prints, along with greeting cards from my landscape collection at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/danielle-neil.html.
