Lynette Gram divides her time between Burtchville, MI, where her studio is, and Bonita Springs, FL. Photographing antiques, collectables and interesting old things has become her focus in life. Since her grade school field trips with the family ‘Brownie’ camera, Lynette has loved photography. She progressed to digital photography in 2015, and began a self taught learning journey. In 2000 she came down with a permanent Vertigo issue which affected her movement greatly. Still Life was the answer! Captivated with the beauty in antiques, she also loves the stories behind each. Their signs of age and wear enhance their uniqueness and draw you into their history and purpose. ‘Light Painting’ or ‘Light Sculpting’ has become her favorite technique. This is done in a dark studio using a long exposure setting and a modified flashlight or wand to light precise areas in order to bring out all the texture and details of each subject.
