Those classes were taken at the Brooks Institute, golden Gate School of Photog- raphy, a photojournalism class in Nevada, and at other schools. In the early days, she worked with other local pho- tographers, such as Nan Brown and then Bob Kimble, before they went their separate ways. Again, people were the subject of the studio. When recession hit the area and it became less attractive to handle stereos and camera equipment, her photography continued to hold her interest, even when she decided to give photography up photography as a business.

Although the scaly head of a small grass snake as it slith- ered through the garden, a wa- ter setting, and an Americ0n Valley barn at sunrise have been included, people are her main focus. There, within the frames she has chosen to compliment her work, are photographs of her children: Angela, 17, Karen, 11, and her husband, Pat, all fa- vorite subjects. Their friends and a child of a friend, are among the other models Flynn has posed or captured at odd, natural moments. Indicating the photograph of a friend's little daughter, Fly- nn said she just happened to be in the right place at the right time. The photo of a blonde- haired, prettily dressed beauty could rival those captured of child models for magazines and advertisements, as she looks over her shoulder at her parents' friend. And, that friend was Flynn, camera in hand, knowing when to cap- ture a golden moment in time. Techniques Although Flynn has had oc- casion to work with some of the best camera equipment in the business, her steady com- panion is now a Canon AE1 and a Vivitar 283 flash. "Both are work horses," she said about their dependability. Setting the camera manually is how she prefers to work. "I set all my own settings. I just know my light so well." This is the equipment that is always to hand, except in the coldest of weather. This is the equipment that allows her to watch life, spring from her car and snap pic- tures, as the subjects she con- tinually searches for capture her attention. "That's how I get my pic- tures," Flynn said. "I just jump out of my car. That's when you get your best photographs." Referring to the subjects now mounted inher show, she wou!dn't have captured the t iled a OrtWe tgras -satake, camera hadn'tbeen at haftS. And, unless she had had it with her when she passed the American Valley barn one morning, returning from a vis- Photographer Martha Flynn Quincy. it to the gym, she would have missed the sun's golden rays as they struck the rough wood of the old building, and lit the tall grasses. While Flynn agrees that pho- tography has turned from a business to a hobby, she admit- ted that it's more than that. "It's a hobby and just my love. I love it. It's a way of express- ing myself I guess. It's an out- let. A creative outlet." Flynn's photography is on display at the Plumas County Museum on Jackson Street in Quincy, through January. hangs Joseph Kaedgen, DPM Sierra Podiatry Associates Medicine and Surgery of the Foot * Hammertoes * Senior Care * Heel Pain/Spurs * Ingrown Nails Diabetic Foot Care * Fungus Thick/Painful Nails * Bunions Hospital Privileges * Warts Three Year Residency Trained 252-1077 151 .Ash St., Ste.
