My name is Cathy Catanese. I am the owner of Life in Focus. I fell in love with photography while in college. After growing up around my parents photography business and lab, I left for college with one Nikon F2 35 mm and one 50 mm lens. I shot everything that looked interesting to me and soon I was hooked. I had found my love for the process of creating interesting images. The darkroom to me was a magical place. However it is not just the post processing that I enjoy but the planning or seeing and then crafting the image that unfolds before me. Now of course my darkroom is my computer and the one film camera has been traded for multiple digital bodies through the years.
