My name is Petra Brown, I'm a children's book illustrator. I take pictures for fun. I'm not passionate about photography, but I am passionate about my enviroment and I want to try to capture in my photographs the magical feelings that I get when I'm out exploring with my partner, Iain. I focus on the hills and valleys, the woodlands and the abandoned places. I dislike people pics, and urban shots, being a bit of a misanthropist and nature girl. Although I'm vegan, I can't resist photographing the gentle sheep and beautiful cows that share the countryside along with the wild goats and ponies. I own a lowly Nikon D3100 which suits me, it's light and very easy to use on manual. I edit mainly in Lightroom with the odd bit of Photoshop cloning thrown in.
I tend to favour the portrait aspect, closing in on a more intimate landscape shot rather than the grand panorama.
