Behind the Image; Chip off the old block  By Chelsea Stark Blind photography

Being a blind or visually impaired photographer I tend to use my camera so I can see the area around me. Not that many people think about using the life you function is an aid to see more of their surroundings before photographing. But I have found that has given me a better view and I get more of these interesting shots that most people would not think up or see. This image is a great example of what I was speaking about.
I was on a hike and was told there is a chipmunk on a rock. So I pulled out my camera and turned on the life you and looked around. Suddenly I saw a chipmunk sitting on a rock. I zoomed in and snapped this shot. Once I snapped the shot I went back and looked at the finished image and realize man this turned out really good. Plus I zoomed in and found out that it is super sharp. When I got this into my computer that evening I decided it would it’s best as a black and white.

Here is a snapshot of the settings and camera information for this image.

Being blind I do not fiddle with settings is much is most people would. I tend to work with the auto settings that are in my camera. I have found that I have gotten some great results just using the auto functions for certain times a day and certain subjects. The cameras I have used are a Canon power shot G10, Nikon D 90, pinhole camera, iPhone 4s, iPhone 6 and Sony a 6000.

Thank you to Robert Park and Daniel from Nevada Art Printers for making my mom’s Mother’s Day present such a hit. 


Interview with visually impaired By Chelsea Stark Blind photography

Photo Narrations

Tell us something about your self and why you are passionate about photography.

My name is Chelsea Stark and I am a 36-year-old visually impaired woman. I started taking photos when I was about 12. I found that it was a great way for me to see the world around me. And I really enjoyed it. Over the years I have had several kinds of cameras. The two cameras I really enjoyed using so far are my IPhone 6 and my Sony a 6000.


How did you and do you learn to take good photos?

I have not taken any formal classes or training. All I know comes from practice, practice, practice. I tend to take a picture when I see something that interests me, or something I want to see up close. And sometimes just that little act of wanting to know what’s around me helps me to get…
