Been a Crazy Long Time!

It has been a while so I thought I would just throw up a few photos, just cause…Enjoy.

Recent Processing

Here is a few more shots. Some are from a little while ago when I had borrowed a fisheye and played around with that. I found that it was such a great lens for some stuff and that not everything really does look cool through a fisheye lens. Sometimes you just got to go back to the good ol 24-60 Sigma 2.8 which seems to do the trick or just good ol 10-20 wideangle.

Tractor and Hay Bails

Rolls of Hay in the Sun

Poles, Trains, and Powerlines

Last 3 shots were all taken with a Nikon 10.5mm 2.8 fisheye. These next shots were taken on a tour of a building being reclaimed through the use of art (Check out: http://www.ruinandreclamation.blogspot.com/ for more info). Anyway, these two shots are from the basement. I am going to put something in the show, but the piece I started for the show will definitely not be ready for it and I am trying to finish off another piece I have been working on for a while now. No matter what I have said I will put something in and I can sense myself backing off for fear of what others may think of my weirdo “wannabe” paintings. I guess we will see…

The Good Ol Days

What is that doing in the Basement?

More Cemetary Shots

Uneven Ground

Elevated Walkway

Thought that I would post a few shots from another cemetary shoot last week, or the week prior – I cant get my weeks straight. I love the marble in the one area I shot, so many reflections. Many more to come…maybe not just in the Cemetary though, right?

Tunnel Vision

Be a Lamp unto Yourself

This last one is an HDR. I have become addicted to HDR and the colors or effect that you can get with the software. I find that my shooting is maybe suffering a little though cause I just want to do everything with HDR. So I vow to slow down, although I already have…Hope you enjoy…

Last Nights Shots

Been a while since I have posted, or feels like it. Have quite a few shots in the mix these days. Here is the first set of a few night shots. I thought I better post these before I post some more cemetary night shots again (I know, I know, I vowed to not go back for a little while…a little while).

I know that a lot of people do not like the “streetlight orange/city light glow” but that is really what these shots are. I find that it brings an interesting look, or at least can. All in all I think that is what I enjoy about night photography, just letting the sensor saturate the light in different ways to get various effects.

I have found the propect of a B&W HDR very appealing these days, so here is another one…I like the effect, especially with night shots, the grain and all looks like a pencil drawing. Would love to hear some comments…

More HDR Remakes

It seems as if it has been a really long time since I have done this…anyway, I (as is seemingly looking like the case) am still going through old shots that I have not looked at in a while, and am finding that they are pretty decent (or at least some of them) and since I would shoot alot to try and get the various meanings of; apeture, shutter speed, metering, white balance, and all the other interesting jargon that goes along with digital photography and photography in general. I found I can turn some of the shots into HDR. Hdr rather.

Just a quick note, I tend to see the compositions, not the technicallity of it all. I am still learning how much I can actually do with a good lens and a camera that is for sure. And in all that I complain about processing shots, there is definitely an art to this as well, that I dont really know well. But we are all students in life arent we? Okay, so maybe not everyone.

Back to the original story here…So as I am looking through these shots I am noticing, again, that I tend not to look at shots on the computer after I go out t shoot, cause I dont like processing photos at all. It takes alot of time, and I dont have any luck with computers, at all, so I am stuck with a working space that takes anywhere from 2-10 mins to load a picture into photoshop or capture nx (which are the two programs I use the most, although photomatrix has been a fave for a while too). All that said it does not make for a “good time” processing, so I usually end up painting or going out to take more shots instead. Im into a more embodied style of creativity, I suppose (whatever that means??).  But here are a few that I have been chipping away on…

The first two are from a late night industrial adventure in Calgary with my brother-in-law, upon which, we witnessed a truck pull up and a transaction (a more embodied one) took place between two individuals a little ways away from where we were shooting. Although my brother-in-law disputes the type of transaction that took place, never-the-less, a transaction of sorts took place….

Industrial HDR 1

Industrial HDR 2

Here are another couple shots from that night as well…

Conventional Pespective

Perspective I like a Whole lot More

So I may as well share the last HDR (although Im sure that I will post many more in the near future). It is from Park Lake (which is more of a scummy pond than anything else when it comes to swimming) which is a favorite spot of mine, not only to shoot, but just to collect myself and have some introspective time, or to write. Enjoy…

Walking the Dog

Thought I would take the dog for a little walk on the ridge yesterday and brought my camera along to see what I could see. Was a nice walk although the wind really picked up and you can tell in some of the shots. But all in all, a nice little outing. Enjoy…
