January 23 2012 A Beautiful Day

Well, today was a beautiful day, here in Edmonton. I couldn’t believe that it was melting out there, after a week of minus –30C daytime high. I was out and about getting some produce for the fridge. Helped a friend with a lift to his new (for him) truck. That got me thinking of Spring. So I figured I would post an image that would remind us that Spring is not that far away. Well here it is, enjoy.

   Now I’m not sure if you would like this one so I think I will add another photo, that is similar to this one.

From the Archives

Found another photo from the Foggy Beaver Pond. The thing with this photo is the Reflections on the water. I put the painterly effect on this photo, just to see if it would look good or not, and I thought it looked very nice. The colors are very interesting in this image, almost pastel. I must say that this shoot that my old Boss and I did was a very successful one, although at the time, I really didn’t look at these images very much, just printed the one image for the APPA print show. Well enough chatter, here is the photo. Let me know if you like it or not.

More on Window Light Portraiture

Hello everyone, one or more people that have viewed my blog have expressed interest in the window light video's. I have viewed another video of a Master Photographer that I personally met when I was a Pro Photographer. He had an exhibit of his work at one of the Professional Photographers of Alberta Seminars, and I can tell you now that he had some most beautiful works I have ever seen at this seminar. Here is one of his video's of Window Light Portraiture.

Hope you like this video. Let me know what you think of the video.

More Archive Images 2012

Not to many things to take photos of this winter, so I figured that I would show you more of my archives. The photo I am showing you today is from the same shoot  as the  Foggy Beaver Pond. This time I thought I would show you a B&W  image rather than color. Black and White photography was what I first learned and had lots of fun with, working in the darkroom, to get it just right. In b&w digital photography we can only work with 255 shades of gray, where as in color we have a million or more shades. Here is the image I am talking about. Hope you like it.
