As Did Monet, Artists Paint the Landscape

Some favorite places are Mill Creek MetroParks, Beaver Creek State Park, Poland forest, sunflower fields, farms, old villages, apple orchards, ponds, creeks and more.

Through the Lens by Bill Aubuchon
Experience Bill Aubushon’s collection of people, places and wildlife photographs were taken various locations around the world. The wildlife images were shot mostly in Florida. In most cases, the digital images receive little or no post processing. Bill tries to present actual images as they appeared at the moment of exposure. When he comes upon a scene that interest him, he visualizes the final image and then transfers that information to the camera via shutters speed, lens opening, ISO and composition to arrive at the images presented in this exhibit.
