Presenting: Deb and Art Rose
Deb and Art enjoy travelling and sharing their experiences and adventures through their photography. Over 28 days in September of 2021, they travelled 3,619 miles on Old Route 66 from Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles, California. This had always been a dream to travel the Mother Road. Art and Deb will share their planning, learning, and highlights of the road trip. You can also read their Route 66 travel blog on Shorewoods Photography- Boarding Group 2
Art and Deb’s interest in photography blossomed over 20 years ago during a family trip to Australia. Their passion for both travel and photography continued to grow. Once retired from their careers, they are living their dream to travel and capture their experiences through photography.
Their travels have taken them through North, Central and South America, Europe, and Asia. Domestic road trips include Utah & Arizona, Route 66, Louisiana, West Virginia, Maine (complete with puffins), the Oregon Coast and Covered Bridges from Maryland to the Finger Lakes of New York.
Their interests span many types of photography including landscape, street, night sky, and wildlife. Deb enjoys merging creativity with her photos. Using photoshop, she blends watercolor painting and brush effects to create photo artistic pieces; and in a process she calls “Photo Alchemy”, combines differing images to create new artistic compositions. Art likes to experiment with post-processing software and develop unique approaches and recipes that produce realistic composites and impart a range of dramatic looks to his photos.
Art and Deb are members of the Northern Virginia Photographic Society. Deb currently serves as Co-VP of Competitions and Art as Education and Training Coordinator.
“We see photography as a way to connect with others, capture the experiences of new places, and discover different perspectives of familiar places”.
