The Interview

I'm very excited to show you this little project I did with my niece & nephew, Alyssa & Brandon. Alyssa is such an expressive character.  I have been trying to figure out how to best capture that range of expressions. After watching the artist, I got this idea of a silent film style interview. It turned out better than I expected and having Brandon's part at the end was perfect.

I hope you like it !

Welding Glass ND Filter

I've read about people using the tinted class from welding helmets for a neutral density filter. So I had to try it. This was my first attempt and it turned out well. The welders glass gives an awful color cast but if you enjoy b&w like me, it's not such a problem. Certainly a cheap alternative, I just need to figure out something better for mounting rather than two elastic bands :)

Another Visit

A third visit to this place proved to be very productive. different light, different clouds & different angles = different images. I'm loving the results.

The Next Generation

We went to see some old friends this weekend and enjoyed music from the next generation. These two entertained the place for an opening set and were fantastic. A really nice evening, reminded me to look back at some images of them from this spring. Here's one of my favorites, and look its black and white!  ha  :)

Forgetaboutit

I did not stop the car in the middle of the road and take this shot from the drivers seat with the car still in drive. That never happened, so just forgetaboutit !

Apple House

An old farm house in Huron New York. This place is surrounded by apple fields and I think some of the farm workers might stay there during the season. I was waiting for a good morning sky for this place and last time we were there I got it!
Color or black & white, which do you prefer ?

50 Point Beach

Went down to a local beach that I never knew existed. Thanks to a friend I've been introduced to this great spot! It was a good night :) Still feeling the influence of great Canadian photographer Michael Levin. Thanks for the inspiration Michael.

McCormick Deering

Came across this tractor the other night just as the sun was going down, so it was almost dark and quite breezy. Nice soft light with some tree motion......perfect.

First two Images have a touch of nik glamour glow.
