Week 2 - 52 Week Project - Red Mustang!!

Well, the theme was suppose to be "RGB",  but I only found the red part of this little project. LoL  I had access to a Red Mustang this week and I took some photos of it.  The lighting wasnt the greatest but sometimes that is the way it goes.





It is definitely a Pretty Little Red Car!!!

Week 1 - 52 Week Project - Valentine's Day

I have decided to try a 52 Week Project ... One theme a week, to share with the world.  I plan on posting a photo each Saturday.  I will decide on what the theme will be early in the week and will set out to shooting later in the week.

This week, I was lucky enough to be able to photograph some very wonderful people at work.  I wish to Thank all 3 of them for all the hard work they did on Valentine's Day as well as for letting me photograph you.

Frost Filled Mornings

For 2 days this week, Calgary had fog which cause some great tree images.  The first morning I was out very early so I didn't get the greatest of images but what I did capture I was very impressed with.


This was taken around 7am on Wednesday morning.  You can see the street light through the tree while the  snow/ice crystals falling. So no that is not noise from shooting at such a high ISO, haha :) 

This next however, was a perfectly clear blue sky day which made for some great images as well.  It was cold and clear and I so wished I had more time to play that day.  All of the images were taken on the short walk to the bus stop before heading off to work. 





You can see all of the frost images at the following gallery:  Out and About Gallery

Mother~Daughter Shoot

I just had to share these 2 images.  I just love how they turned out.  It is actually the same image however, I added a background to one of them to add a little more to it.  I really like the idea of digital backgrounds, you can really add life to an image ... it is an easier said than done kind of thing!!!  But if it wasn't worth working at it wouldn't be satisfying in the end would.


I am still having a few problems getting my backgrounds as white I would like them but this one turned out not to bad.


This is a muslin digital background ... I think it really goes with these 2 girls.  Gives them a little more color and a little more life to the image.



Well, I have decided to start a new project ~ 52 Photo Project ~ I am hoping that maybe if its only one photo a week maybe I will have better luck.  So wish me luck on this one!!! 

I will be posting on Sundays the possibly theme for the coming week.  And will be posting the image on Saturdays with a little bit of a story to go with the image.

This week the possible image will be taken at work.  Monday is St. Valentines, and it is a big deal, fancy clothes and wrapping of flowers.  So I am hoping I will be able to post these images.



I have been playing in my studio as of late.  Just playing with my lights to see what I can create.  I will be posting those images later this week when I have had a little bit of time work them.  :)

Just testing

Just trying blogging from my iPad. I found a new app, in hopes that it will run better than the last one. And so far so good!! Still have a few of the functions to figure out but I am sure it won't take much to do so.

I had alot of fun creating these images, I love to play in my studio.  You never know what you might be able to create along the way.

Family of Man

Wednesday, I had a little running around to do but also wanted to do some shooting as well.  So I decided to take along my little G11 camera, which I just love to play with and see what I can capture with it. 

Well, this statues were along the way .... I have wanted to photograph them before but never in the right place at the right time.  The statues are of "Family of Man".  I took several shots of these statues and did a little experimenting to see what might look good.






"These sculptures were specifically commissioned for that part of Britain's Pavilion at Expo 67 which portrayed Britain responding to the challenge of the world problems and meeting international responsibilities. They were conceived and designed by Mario Armengol, who aimed to inspire two moods - an immediate reaction to man dominating and then a contradictory feeling of insignificance and dependence.
The sculptures, despite their height of 21 feet, are unmistakably human - naked, raceless, expressionless men and women. They are placed in groups, hands extended in gestures of fellowship and goodwill.
At the conclusion of Expo 67, Robert Cummings purchased the sculptures on behalf of Maxwell Cummings and Sons, who donated them to the City of Calgary."
