“The work of the eyes is done. Go now and do the heart-work on
the images imprisoned within you.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
I will show some of my work and then show selected photos to
hopefully discuss and engage everyone with my though process of how
I create my photos. All my work is unapologecally Photoshopped.

Bio:
Hi, I’m Rebecca Gillum and I love photography as much as you do. I dabbled in the film days with a Canon AE-1. I took some really great photos of my dog and cat back then! I went to college and graduated with a BS in Horticulture.

Ten years down the road, I decided that I didn’t want to be digging holes when I was 40 so back to college I went for my second degree. I graduated with a degree in graphic design, but I also took a few photography classes. And that changed my way of looking at the world. I learned the art and science of B&W film photography and I still have a 4×5 camera and full B&W darkroom to this day.

Life intervened in the ensuing years – kids, job, mortgage, etc. But finally, after years of no photography I decided to get one of those new-fangled digital cameras four years ago (maybe it’s 5 now but who’s counting?).

Getting that digital camera was one of the best decisions of my life! I’ve gotten to see and experience things most never will. Yeah, my photos have won some contests, and been on a magazine cover or two, and been in some prestigious shows, and some people have even bought my photos. For that, I am truly grateful.

What photography ultimately means to me is the chance to see and experience the world on my own terms. And that usually means that I’m alone in the middle of nowhere with my camera. And there is no other place that I would rather be.
