Finding the Warmth

B and W Tree

Finally got out an did some shooting with a friend of mine today. It was snowing here in Ottawa and we decided to just walk the nearby trails and see what inspired us.

Alas due to the snow and clouds there wasn’t much warm light so everything felt black and white. Finding some warmth in our coloured shots was hard. Some nice B&W shot came out nice and were well fitted to the atmosphere.

Arched Bridge

Then we came across this bridge that the city put in this summer and the rust colour just stood out against the white and black ambience. plus the added symmetry made this a good shot. The snow falling added to the depth. All in all I liked this shot. Hope you can enjoy the winter.

Till next time keep shooting.

Winter is here!

Christmas OrnementWell XMas is in less that a week and I thought I would try my hand at photographing some sparkle. I took a bunch of shots with different ornaments and played around in Lightroom to get this result.

Now hopefully Santa heard my wishes for some new gear. nothing spectacular like a new lens r body, but maybe some light modifiers. Either way I am sure it will lead to some more shots and posts.

Winter is completely here in Ottawa and that means it is very white outside and very dark inside. Tomorrow is the winter solstice and the sun will set at 4:21PM. Basically it will be dark when I leave in the morning and it will be dark before I get home. This makes shooting a challenge plus the cold makes it hard to have your hands exposed to the elements for changing up settings. So all this is to say it brings on more challenges. Can’t wait!!

Till next time keep shooting. Oh ya and Merry Christmas!
