Pictures From my Soul
Flo Budny’s Artist Statement:
“I am the woman behind these photographs. Truly, it never occurred to me that photography just might be my bliss. Since I had no hobbies, a friend of mine ( you know who you are) encouraged me to start taking pictures.
At that time, I didn’t even own a camera. So, I finally broke down and bought a point and shoot 8 years ago.
The first thing I noticed is what I saw through the view finder wasn’t what the finished product was!
My soul saw something different than I did.
It was amazing!.
I used that little old point and shoot for about 3 years and then, ever since, I’ve used a digital DSLR.
Seems my soul enjoys nature shoots.
That is what I do the most of, but not exclusively. It was very very surprising (and uplifting) when I started posting my photographs on Facebook.
The response I received was overwhelming. Most said that my work brought them joy. If they had a bad day and looked at my photos, it made their moods change and put a smile on their face. I felt truly honored and as well as touched very deeply.
Now, I don’t limit myself to just Facebook.
I donate portraits for charities. A few are the local library fundraisers, Soldiers of Valor, Not One More, and a few others. I also had a gallery exhibition in 2013 at the
Rochester Public Library in Rochester, PA
that got a great response.
It seems, when you listen to your soul you can never go wrong.”
once confirmed you’re set.
