Betty Hum has always been fascinated with the impact of light and movement. In between practicing law, Betty took photography classes and workshops around the world to enable her to capture the feelings and motions of dance, birds, as well as other wildlife. She has spent considerable time observing birds to understand their movements and to let them lose their fear of the sound of the camera shutter. Spending hours waiting and watching lets her focus on special moments of her subject.
Her extensive travels to Asia and Europe led her to become more serious about making photography a creative endeavor, not dependent on practicing law. In 2016, she took the step towards making photography a reality. She has been photographing educational and community events for the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, including artist residencies and master classes, arts enrichment events for educators, students, and seniors, hands on workshops, museum and other special events. In addition, she has provided photography for other non-profits.
