The Nevada Camera Club honors Joan Goddard for her outstanding achievement as 2017 Photographer of the Year for the Nevada Camera Club. Joan has enjoyed photography for over 50 years, beginning with a high school photo club. Her first SLRs were Konica Auto-Reflexes, then switched to a Canon EOS in the 90s. In May of 2009, she acquired her first digital SLR, the Canon Rebel T1i, soon graduating to the 7D, then the 5D MK III and a variety of Canon L lenses.
Her photo subject interests range from landscapes, nature and wildlife to creative abstracts. She uses Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC, and the Topaz bundle for most of her editing.
