Dena Creamer: Arkansas Impressions

Inherent to me as a nature photographer is the desire to articulate my joy and awe in the moment, in the experience of beholder to the grandeur of vast landscapes, tiny vistas and all that exist within them. Some of my most cherished photos are made in everyday spaces many walk or drive by without notice of their splendor. Scenes take on a new character, and the ordinary can become extraordinary through unique composition, point of view and special light. Impressionistic ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) is one of my favorite photographic techniques to capture ethereal visions before me, along with diverse focal lengths, exposure times and depths of field.” – Dena Creamer

Dena Creamer was born in Missouri and has spent much of her life enjoying nature, camping, and hiking in the Ozarks. Many years a proud Arkansan, she took up photography seriously in 2012, studying on her own and with Arkansas’ legendary nature photographer and teacher, Tim Ernst, in his workshops. She lives in Johnson county, in the foothills of the beautiful Ozark Mountains, with her retired parents and her Rottweiler, Gabe.
