Welcome to my little space in the blog world.
There are a few relationships in my life that hold a place of importance high above all else ~ my dear husband, my lovely family and my camera. From my early Canon A1 to the Canon 7D I hold today, my camera has been an extension of me … and the voice of how I see the world.
This is the blog where this great love affair can play out.
My passion with photography stems from the opportunity to create, to think outside the box, and present an image of the world not as it stands … but, as I have visualized. ~ Robin Deutschmann
Follow your heart …
If I could leave my children with just one piece of advice, it would be … Follow your heart and love where it will lead you.
I have practiced this myself and it has led me along some very interesting pathways. One such path brought me into the life of a wonderfully creative man, who is now both my husband and business partner, Rod Deutschmann. It has also launched me into a career in photography and writing that only in my wildest dreams I could have imagined possible.
In 2006, Rod and I co-founded the San Diego In Focus Learning Center (IFLC San Diego Photography Courses) and dedicated our lives to teaching people how to do more with their camera than just take a pretty snapshot ~ we teach them the art of going manual and the freedom it allows for true expressionism. That’s a big statement, I know, and I stand behind it completely.
