Welcome to Donna Miller Photos

NEW PHOTO JOURNAL

After Its Kind is a 26 page Hard­cov­er book — a col­lec­tion of pho­tographs Steve and Don­na Miller have cap­tured on sev­er­al out­ings across Texas — from north Texas to the Texas coast. In shar­ing these pho­tographs, the Miller’s hope to “focus” the view­er on the beau­ty, design and mys­tery of God’s awe­some cre­ation, A cre­ation that points us back to the Cre­ator Him­self.

Most of the pho­tos in this book were shot by Don­na Miller; A few were tak­en by Donna’s hus­band, Steve, who some­times uses her pho­tos as ref­er­ence for his paint­ings. (http://www.SteveMillerStudios.com)

Don­na Miller has always loved pho­tog­ra­phy, and in recent years, she has spent more time purs­ing her craft. Don­na has won sev­er­al awards in local art & pho­tog­ra­phy shows and has been juried into some nation­al pho­tog­ra­phy shows.
When ask about her pho­tos, Don­na says:

One might say that I stum­bled into pho­tog­ra­phy, although I have always loved tak­ing pic­tures. To be hon­est, I was very dis­ap­pointed when my faith­ful 35 mm stopped work­ing and I was forced to go dig­i­tal. Now I can’t imag­ine hav­ing to wait to see what I just cap­tured. I love the way the cam­era cap­tures moments that some­times go unno­ticed.

Work­ing full time makes it very dif­fi­cult to spend the time I would like study­ing pho­tog­ra­phy and the many excit­ing things that can be done with the soft­ware that is avail­able today. My jour­ney in this pho­tog­ra­phy adven­ture has just begun. I plan to pur­sue stud­ies in all avenues of pho­tog­ra­phy, and to con­tinue to seek that unique moment in time, that once in a life­time pho­to.”

Donna’s favorite pho­to relat­ed quote is by pho­tog­ra­ph­er Marc Riboud — “Tak­ing pic­tures is savor­ing life intense­ly, every hun­dredth of a sec­ond.”
