About Janet M. Sheard



My photographs reflect my personal commitment of capturing the essence/energy of life by integrating and manipulating light in each image.  Just as a painter's paintbrush distributes paint on a canvas to bring life to the canvas, I want the viewer to see and feel the positive elements or beauty in the world as it emerges through the lens of the camera; I try to capture both the visual and emotional reality of the events I witness.  I deem my work a success when both the event and mood of the moment are mirrored in my photographs.
