My mother introduced me to photography as a child with a Brownie black and white film camera and continued her joy of picture taking until her passing. In addition, my uncles Cody and Hugh Grider were avid camera and photography enthusiasts. It was fun watching them trade "glass" and always try to one up the other on new lenses and cameras. They are truly missed!
I prefer using nature's available light whenever possible and especially attracted to beautiful objects and landscapes in and around my home. I use a number of digital software"darkroom" programs to enhance my vision of how each capture should be revealed to the beholder.
Please visit my cards and gifts shop CAFEPRESS.COM/GRIDERIMAGES for unique gifts created from my favorite photographs. If there is a special home accessory that I have not yet included from one of my prints, please feel free to contact me via e-mail.
