Through Their Lens: Tera Elwell

Words and Photos by: Tera Elwell 

Over the years I had dabbled in photography, but it wasn’t until I became a photojournalist for my college newspaper that I started taking it seriously. Around the same time I met my wife who is also a photographer. We both expressed interest in expanding our portfolio and have worked on almost every photo-shoot together for the last five years. 

I love trying out new styles and I’m constantly watching tutorials online to become a better editor. We don’t have a lot of equipment, but the lack of gear forces us to be more creative. Sometimes it feels like everyone is taking the same picture but if you get up and walk around for awhile, it’s easy to find some unique and beautiful new sceneries.
