Northern Black Hills Winter
Jan 27, 2014
Karen Mahoney, Spearfish, shared these snowy Black Hills nature photos. "I've always enjoyed photography, but never really had the money for it until the digital age arrived. My start in 'real' photography came with a Christmas gift of a digital SLR from my husband about four years ago," Mahoney says. "I remember him saying his biggest fear was that I wouldn't use it enough to justify the cost. Within a year I had started selling my photography." She calls herself a "self-taught" artist. "Community classes, internet research, reading and a background of retail management have allowed me to take a hobby and turn it into a part-time business. Definitely the best job I've ever had!"
