behind the lens…

Tracey Capone is a self-taught photographer, originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, now living in Chicago, Illinois.

She spent the majority of her adult life in a corporate job looking for a creative outlet and, ultimately, and happily, landed on photography. While introduced to the medium at an early age by her father, a photography hobbyist, it wasn’t until the purchase of her first digital point and shoot six years ago, for a trip to Germany, that she found a love and talent for photography.

After upgrading to the realm of digital SLR photography a year later, she combined her strong desire to travel with her new found love of photography and produced several series of work from France, Italy, Ireland and other destinations.  She also incorporates nature and abstract photography in to her repertoire, pulling from the fabulous mix of urban and lakeside surroundings that she encounters daily.

    Tracey, I don’t know why but I love the “Dogwood” pic! I think it’s the colors – and that one giant looking bloom looming over everything. I just visited your website – awesome work! 🙂

      Thank you very much. I use a Nikon D700. No, I don’t use PS on everything or in some cases I only use it to crop and resize properly.
