Hi, I'm Tracy and welcome to my site Be Calm Photography.
I've had an interest in photography since I was a child but my camera use has been a bit sporadic over the years. It wasn't until about 10 years ago that I really threw myself back into my love of photography and the bug took hold and has never let go since.
Over the years I've experimented with different genres as I wasn't sure what I really wanted to focus on. It wasn't until I started developing my macro and close up skills that I realised that I had found my passion.
I love being outdoors in nature and I really enjoy being around flowers and in gardens, so it all started to fall into place. The other aspect to my photography that I identified over time was the meditative benefits that it brings. The calm and quiet that surrounds me when I'm using my camera is really beneficial to slowing my mind and stoping the noise.
Our mental wellbeing is so important and that is why I wanted to start my blog and share my work.
