Maureen Ravnik was born in Minnesota. After attending college in Colorado, she stayed and never looked back. Working and traveling opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to creatively document her discoveries. She began making images of the American west in hopes of preserving the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west. Today, Maureen’s time is spent outdoors capturing the scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way.
Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national and international juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, Colorado, and many images selected as editor picks on National Geographic and for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers. She has co-authored 2 books that document the history, beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country. Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.
When I develop my water studies, the very first thing I get asked is “how do you do that”? I love water studies because I have such reverence for water….no water, no life. I become enamored with observing and appreciating the amazing characteristics that water displays yet not many people see. It takes hours of scouting locations, finding the right flow and environment, and most importantly perfect light. All these things play a part in how I might convey water’s malleability, adaptability, reflective ability, color, texture, etc. It is a labor of love.
All my water images are born in-camera. In this series, most are straight out of the camera. Some are two exposures simply blended as if a double exposure. In several, I have used one image 4 times to create the final pattern. None are developed through digital apps or programs.
May we all treat water as if it was our child.
