This week we are excited to feature Lyn Watanabe as this week’s Port PHOTO Alumni feature! Lyn’s love for photography started with an old film camera, black and white film and many hours in the darkroom. The camera became her visual journal, documenting her travels, special moments and the people she loves. Before long, she also started capturing other special times and moments of others. Photographs are magical. They can stop time, capture a moment and teleport you back in time.

When opportunity presents itself, Lyn loves teaching others the techniques of photography in hopes that they also fall in love with the art and magic.
