Hello! My name is René Comer. I am a photographer, artist, wife, mom, and owner of Sensing Majesty, here on Oahu, Hawaii. During the summer of 2013, my husband and I relocated from Texas to Hawaii!

I opened Sensing Majesty because I really want to share my admiration of God’s handiwork. The best way I can do this is by making fine art nature photography and digital paintings.

My inspiration
We did not have a television for many of my younger years, so we did a lot of gallivanting around our home town and took road trips to see family. My parents loved taking photos recording those trips. My siblings and I would all sit on the living room floor and watch their slide shows on Friday nights. I guess having an affinity for road trips and taking photos is inevitable!

My Workspace
My husband and our adult children back in Texas as well as my very supportive siblings and their spouses constantly keep me inspired with the photos that they show me. I also draw creativity from my happy place – that is my tiny studio. Quirky-looking seed pods and unusual beach finds are scattered on my shelves. Amidst my Georgia O’ Keefe and Ansel Adam prints are pieces of art made by my friends and family and, of course photos of my children.

My Tools
For photos, I usually use a Nikon DSLR. For editing and painting, I use Corel Painter and Photoshop. Although I miss getting messy with paints, there are two big reasons that I chose to create digitally:
1) It does not take up very much space.
2) I’m saving my funds for printing rather than buying paint supplies.

Hope to see you soon at my gallery on Etsy. Leave me a comment—I would love to know that any of my work brings you joy!

I hope you have a blessed day!

  1. Thank you for your input. Although I am not a perfectionist the soft focus has been bothering me for some time. I have been holding off publishing any new work because of that and my job keeping me away from my camera. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!


  2. I know that out of focus parts on pictures are just a fact of a lot of photography. My advice is keep those out of focus shots to a minimum and use Photoshop to get rid of them if possible before you publish a print. You may not be a perfectionist when it comes to taking in focus pictures only but realistically only the all focus pictures really merit awards and accolades from humans in the know.
