Dr. Marciana


I have a longstanding interest in photography. I got my first 35mm camera in the mid 70s and took some classes and learned how to use the darkroom for black and white processing and printing.  During the next 20 years, most of my photography involved documenting family life.

I got my first digital camera in 1997 and never picked up a film camera again. I love digital photography and the creative options that are available for processing.

In  2009 I was introduced to High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and now use the process for most of my images. The HDR technique helps to make ordinary scenes look more interesting. My processing ranges from natural to surreal. Much of my work depicts urban and rural landscapes and railscapes, however, I am increasing my repertoire to include street and live music photography.

Personal and Professional

I had the good fortune to be transplanted to Kansas in 2000. I was born and raised in New York and New Jersey. After college, I spent 20 years in California before moving to the Midwest to pursue a doctorate in psychology. Photography provides a wonderful creative outlet and a means of escape for me. My professional work as psychologist includes practice, teaching, and research. It is often intense and demanding and my interest in photography provides a fun and adventurous distraction. What started as a hobby has become a passion. I live in Lawrence and spend a lot of time at Clinton Lake exploring and shooting sunrises, sunsets, and moonrises. Photography is a great reason to travel, discover new places, and meet interesting people.
