Photography is my Zen, my meditation, my passion. I love textures and shapes and often use the digital darkroom to pull those out to my liking. I like a bit of exaggeration especially in my animal images because to me they are all exotic and surreal. I strive to capture their eyes making an intimate connection, letting us into their world for a brief moment. I love to travel and try to capture the spirit of the land as I see and feel it.
Sonya Lang began exploring the world through the lens at an early age. Growing up between Woodland Park Zoo and Green Lake in Seattle, she was fascinated by the shapes and textures of both the natural world and the big city. With little formal education in photography, she found many mentors through photo clubs/groups and listened and learned, forming lifelong friendships with kindred spirits. Sonya enjoys the digital darkroom and uses it to complete her vision, pulling out textures and playing with different processing to realize her vision.
