Kimberly's interview with Luke Edmonson

Kimberly J. Smith began her professional photography career in 2001 in Muskogee, Oklahoma.  With no formal training, she stepped out on faith, purchased her professional equipment and began taking classes.  Photography soon became a passion and she quickly learned that creating beautiful portraits and art was what she was meant to do.

As a member of her local, state, regional and national Professional Photographer associations, she soon earned her Master of Photography degree in 2008.  In 2013, she received her Photographic Craftsman degree and became a PPA Affiliated Juror, and in 2016, she received her Imaging Excellence and Master Artist degree.  Judging, competition and photography is her passion, and her family is her love.  With seven super loud but loving children, life can be a bit chaotic, but she wouldn't have it any other way.  She has a loving husband whose support and belief in her has allowed her to become the artist she is today.  She is blessed to have a job she truly loves.

There are always a hundred different ways to accomplish something in Photoshop and everyone does it differently.  I prefer easy.  I will be teaching several tips and tricks that will help you with everyday editing as well as competition work.  Whether you enter competition or not, knowing the 12 elements and using that as a guide for when you are shooting or editing your work is always a plus.  Come join us for the evening and learn how to easily change expressions, create  sleeves and buttons out of nothing, how to paint in photoshop to enhance the artistic look of an image and many other tips.  You don’t have to have an art background to be able to create beautiful works of art, just a little vision and knowing how to use the tools.  I look forward to sharing with you.
