Helen is a self-taught photographer whose pleasure is to focus on the rural and natural environment in which she lives, and showcase it to its best advantage. She uses natural light and shadows to capture and highlight particular features to create a mood in her images. Helen takes advantage of the varying light during different times of the day, particularly as she lives in an area where there are many farm dams and naturally interesting focal points. Helen revels in the study of the visual variations of the seasons in rural areas, and she uses this to her advantage to produce some amazing effects. She uses little or no editing of images, preferring to leave them as raw as she observes them with the naked eye. Helen has made a concentrated effort towards refining her practice for an extended period, she has adapted a keen observational approach to celebrating and capturing the rural story through imagery.
