Lissywitch Photography & Digital Art on Facebook

It's taken me a while to have the courage to display any of my work publicly. My passion for any form of art, especially photography has grown over the years.
I admire greatly what others can do with a camera, and will do my best to show my appreciation of others work on here.
I'm completely self taught, but I'm a perfectionist so I work hard at my hobby, and I'm learning something new everyday! Please feel free to leave a comment and I welcome any constructive critisism to help me learn :)
Please bear with me if I go quiet for a while, as I spend the rest of my precious free time tracing my family history, and sometimes it takes over everything else I do!

    "Lissywitch was one of my first contacts when I joined Flickr and my first group - the Panasonic Lumix Fz28 group and in this time has become a firm friend. Those days of the point 'n' shoot are behind her she's a Nikonite Girl now!

    I have been lucky enough to witness her evolve into a fabulous photographer, who constantly steps 'out of her comfort zone' in her persuit for perfection. Sarah has the ability to capture some magnicent candid images that capture moments and scenes which evoke wonderful feelings and her portrait work is really something to behold.

    She is patient and very encouraging with her thoughts and comments and is always more than willing to offer her help, advice and opinions. Not a day goes by when Lissywitch fails to bring a smile to my face in one way or another.

    She is a true artist in every way!"
