Hi, I'm Maria Overlay

Hello,

I’m Maria, I am a nature and wildlife photographer! I travel around Northwest Indiana and surrounding areas capturing anything nature related! I also take a lot of my photos in my own backyard and nearby golf course. I love to take photos at a well-known place for myself because I know what to expect and know what photo to capture/have in mind. But I am also always up for a challenge and I would love to travel more of the U.S. and capture all the beautiful scenes I have in mind!

My favorite subjects have to be birds. They are definitely the most challenging for me so far. So, when I get a great bird photo it’s that much more rewarding!
I learned the true way to photograph through my online course through The School of Photography. It has helped me so much in this creative journey. I went from always using the Auto setting to never touch it again! I have also learned how to edit in Lightroom and Photoshop!

Right now, I am a freelance photographer and art photographer, I create my own photos and sell them on a few different platforms including Etsy, Picfair, and Photo Art Pavilion.

I love creating natural photos of birds and other wildlife as well as landscape, but I also love to create photos with textures and overlays!

I hope to one day further my experience and learn portrait photography as well as architecture photography! I also wouldn’t mind getting into astrophotography!

Thanks for reading, I hope you love what you see!
