Preston Photography Email Preston Photography  Preston Photography Website Roxanne says, “Through our 36+ years together, Roger and I have shared our love of photography and nature. I enjoy bringing the subject closer through long lens photography and love taking pictures of ‘lone’ and ‘dead’ trees, architectural vignettes, and shots that make people smile. Recently I have been experimenting with abstracts of rock, moss, and mud.” Roger says, “While I like to build the still life in front of the camera lens and light it, I also like finding subject matter that’s out there. I’ve always liked working with wide angle lenses, seeking a near-far relationship that tells a story. When I can’t play with lights in the studio, I look for nature’s play of light. What attract me are subjects of beauty, humor, incongruity, and intrigue.” read more
