“Early in the morning as the sun begins to rise, I can usually be found out in the woods behind our house stalking dew drops. My eyes are saturated with the way the light reflects off the water drops. The colors that are enhanced by the dew and early sunshine draw me in and I cannot help but capture what I see. I can spend hours outside crawling around in the high grass seeking out the tiny unseen plants, weeds as some would say; beauty is what I call them. I enjoy capturing something so small and hidden that most people have never seen it before. My camera becomes an extension of myself. I am capturing the colors, textures and light that I see. The bright greens, reds and purples of miniscule flowers and grasses fill my eyes. Macro photography is a true expression of how I see things. I see the tiny miniscule details and want to show the world. Usually those drops are only a couple of millimeters in size. The natural world is constantly shifting and changing with the seasons, and as such my work is the same. In the spring my images are bright and colorful. In the winter they are black and white and sepia. I would love for everyone to see what I see. It is a very peaceful and joy filled way of looking at the world. I love to show my work to as many people as possible so that they might see as I do.” *** Michelle Wermuth always knew she wanted to be an artist, falling into watercolor painting quite naturally until a photography segment in her commercial art program. She enjoyed spending time in the darkroom available to her in high school, watching images develop and learning about the traditional film process first hand. She shoots with Nikon digital equipment but still uses the old manual lens and bellows system for her macro work. Michelle grew up in the city of Cleveland Ohio so it seemed natural to attend college in a city environment. Having attended a very large high school she sought out a small art school to attend. She found that in Cincinnati Ohio at Antonelli Institute of Art and Photography. She met her husband Robert, who has the same love for photography. They married and moved to Northern Kentucky where they opened Masterworks Photography, a studio specializing in weddings and portraits, which they have owned for over 20 years. When the family moved to a home with woods and a field, Michelle was in her element. Her photography takes place after their three sons go to school in the morning, when the light is just right.
