The ImpressionZ Gallery's artist of the month is photographer Rae-Ada Ann Simmons.
Since 2003, she has been involved with photography and photo editing. Presently she uses four different software programs to edit her photos. She says that she never adds a color to her photo enhancements that is not in the original photo.
"I will lighten, darken, saturate, de-saturate, or change exposure. But if it is in my picture, it really was in the scene."
Rae-Ada's work is featured at the ImpressionZ Gallery all this month and there is a larger than usual display of her photography on hand for viewing and purchase.
