Casually wondering outside with camera...
Growing up in a small town has created a sense of being homegrown and humble as they come.
While there's a lot to create, the lead designer wonders casually outside with camera in hand ready to seek new photo opportunities. Zelia's brown eyes looking through the camera lens, seeking the proper rules of thirds for the perfect shot. This feels and looks good and she takes her photos, but there's always more than one perspective and angle to not be missed.
Acquiring an impressive collection of photos, she continues on her quest for more images, so she can create more digital art. Zelia Correia is a devoted photographer, artist, and designer in her profession. She proudly straddles all three roles with an enthusiasm, with excitement that truly is inspiring and that's contagious.
Zelia isn't immune to the beauty of what "Nature" display's and certainly has those days like the rest of us.
The tradition of working women brings up the question on whether of "Have I managed it well?" to her mind.
But, with the realization to do her best she can only say that she does,
even though time has a way of getting away from her when she's out during her photo shoots.
Now that her children are grown, she decided to group all her skills into her passions.
She say's that "Nature" is her greatest escape, her home, peace and grace.
For she feels this way when she's trying to bring her "Perfectionist" personality into her design.
But, as we all know "Nature" isn't perfect, so as hard as she tries it's obvious that a
lifetime experience helps her understand the "Hardships of life".
Since the community is where Zelia Correia gets her inspirations, she relies on her surroundings, that includes plants, buildings, people, cities flower's. Zelia say's that "She will never forget the first camera given to her at the age of 12 by her parents". She felt that the camera was a part of her, the connections to her inner being. This was the start of her journey that has carried her through her high school photography courses, all the way to her adult life to this day.
Navigating a new passion that embodies expectations are very high and she say's "She has overcome to do something that completes her". This is her way of accepting herself as she is, and where she's able to want what she does. The love of "Nature" brings her favorite quote to mind...
" Those who find beauty in all of nature will find
themselves as one with the secrets of life itself"
- L. W. Gilbert.
This attraction is so strong that "Mother Nature" calms and brings peace to our minds.
