About Me Chelsea Stark
                         
How I see    
What I can see through the camera
My name Is Chelsea Stark I am legally blind and was born with optic nerve damage I have tunnel vision and can only see to about two feet in front of me. I use a Nikon to take my pictures.I use the live view to compose the pictures since I cannot see through the viewfinder.  Since my field of vision is so narrow and I don’t relate to wide vistas, I photograph close up intimate subjects The things I like to photograph are animals, flowers and some times scenery.I use an Apple Mac, which comes with some great tools such as speech, enlarged screen and oversize mouse pointer.My inspiration comes from my loving fiance’ Robert Park. The more pictures I see of his the more inspired I get. He is also my teacher. I hope one day my pictures are as good as his.
