My name is Cynthia M. Thayer. I am a professional photographer. I am passionate about life and photography. When one is blessed with knowledge, I feel it is a responsibility to give back to others. Therefore, I strive to learn as much as I can, and share as much as I can.
I reside in San Jose, California. I love to shoot nature, wildlife and still life. For me, photography is ALL about capturing and manipulating light, so in my adventures with a camera, I strive to capture light in all it’s many shapes, temperatures and forms.
In today’s world of digital photography, knowing how to capture light is as important as knowing what to do with it after you capture it. Therefore, I use Photoshop and Lightroom to manipulate my images, as well as plug-ins from NIK Software and Topaz Labs. Producing the best quality art is my goal and my passion.
