Lucy Beck, Photographer, creates pictures that are detailed, yet light as air, often looking like watercolors. She “paints” with light, to show the remarkable beauty in the small flowers we may have in our gardens, or buy at grocery stores or florists.
Her portraits of individual flowers, or arrangements, show both the inherent beauty and detailed structure of the flowers and also the unique beauty of her design, determined by how the flowers relate to each other. and also her way of revealing through light.
Largely self-taught, she has taken many courses, starting with 3 day weekend courses with Harold Davis and through her local camera club, the Contra Costa Camera Club, where she is an active member and officer and the larger organization, N4C, representing 18 camera clubs.
Lucy has presented her technique and artistry at many events. Below are a selected sample of competitions and presentations and shows. You can see more of her work at: lucybeckphotography.com.
