Playing with some editing and lighting effects with my backdrops. A fun experience that I’d like to perfect a bit more. You can see the BEFORE and AFTER in the one set of photos.


Lunar Eclipse

Rule # 1 – Bring your equipment….

Rule #2 – Make sure you have all PARTS of the equipment…. ** cough cough.** Tripod attachment.

I did manage a few nice shots regardless of the lack of tripod but would have been an amazing night with proper stability.

In all the photos were better than the actual eclipse from my location. A bit of cloud cover seemed to blur out the moon for most of the night until after the eclipse was over. In the past I have found eclipses better in the early hours of the morning and not at sunset. In all, it made for a great night to have a picnic and enjoy good company.

Do it like James Bond – Part I

I got to spend a lovely sunny afternoon with this handsome gentleman. He asked me a few weeks ago who would be able to take some photos of him, as he wished to portray himself in a more positive and composed light. I took this upon myself to convey a series of photos that would show the experience and savoire vivre of his new lifestyle. But every time I thought of ideas, I kept thinking back to James Bond. He agreed that James Bond was the man to be, so with the help of a few props and a sexy man in a suit, I found myself with an album of photographs portraying a mysteriously handsome man with a mission.

A BEEutiful Debate

I had this lovely hummingbird feeder outside my house, and I really enjoyed watching the birds flutter back and forth, battling who would get a chance to drink out of the feeder during the day. However, some new neighbours moved into the area. As much as they are fascinating and unique looking, they were not so pleasant to the local hummingbirds. In fact, I even was wounded by one of them. Needless to say, they had to be removed from the premise and we are all much happier for it.

Take a look at these white-faced hornets…
