Roberta Kayne is an award winning photographer and has been taking photos for over 30 years as “a form of therapy and a way to heal the past and focus on the present.” When she is concentrating on taking pictures, the world fades away, and the only thing that exists is the subject of her photos. Roberta is a breast cancer survivor and now appreciates every day she is alive to share the beauty of the world, one photo at a time.
Because light and shadow are what make a great photograph, Roberta works with and seeks out the best light, like the beautiful blue hour before the sun comes up or after it goes down.. She tries to capture her love for not only the smallest details that surround us, such as the sparkle of dew on a leaf after a rain or the minute detail inside a flower, but also the bigger picture of grand landscapes.
Many of Roberta's photographs are from the 25 plus countries she has traveled to, and some are taken in and around her home base of Dublin, Ohio. Her main interests in photography are macro close ups of tiny life, like insects and flowers; impressionist and artistic interpretations of subjects; wide angle views of landscapes; and photos of the culture and people of the country she is visiting.
Roberta’s photos are reflections of how she sees the world and expressions of the feelings in her heart and soul.
This website is just a small sample of the thousands of photos that Roberta has taken.
