Mixed Light

One Challenge photographers face is mixed light source. Although most do not register that lights cast different colour hues- mixed light can wreck images. On the theme of Mixed-light, this image features parklights and the full moon, as the two light sources. I chose to correct for the parklights (removing the harsh yellow glow) and left…

Juxtaposition

Juxtaposition- an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast. I simply could not get a bird to land on the birdbath after I was all set up with camera and “beany duck” in position.  I was ready to drive to Elk Island and take pictures of buffalo instead when…

Aaron Pedersen

Sometimes you find images online and you are just captivated. You can’t always place just what it is about the image but I find Aaron’s portraits captivating. I cold called Aaron when looking to interview photographers. I was pleased to find that he was very helpful and open to answering questions about being a photographer….

Digital Rev

DigitalRev TV (2014) The Digital Rev .com  Is an entertaining offbeat review site. Actually it is a comprehensive photography site, reviews to sales.

Some Fun

Given a topic of Painting with light thought I’d have some fun- weather outside was bit cold so set up an improvised camping diorama in the office. With the lights off I played with some coloured flashlights to expose the following scenes. “What is it boy?”Bennett, D. (2014). “What is it boy?”. [image]. Complementing this…

Rural

Topic of the week RURAL – Challenge is to capture an image that reflects the topic. I had multiple ideas but could not capture what I was after. When the crops start to come in the timeline to capture the farmers in the field is short. My initial shoot was a gloomy wet Saturday, it…
