My favorite photos
When you do something you love, it's not really work. We all have heard that saying. And for me it is really true. For those of you who have meet me in person, you how much I love what I do and deep my passion for photography runs.
Most people when they get home from work, kick of their shoes, put their feet up and forget about the day they had at work for those few hours before they head back to the office. They turn on the T.V, read a book, spend some time with the family. Any thing to take their mind off work. NOT ME.
Photography started as a hobby and I transitioned it into a business years ago. So for me, during my down, one of my favorite things to do is take off with my camera and work on a personal photography project. I have done lots of these in the past and am always finding something neat to work on. I believe it keeps me on my toes and gives me new and fresh ideas to introduce into the studio for my clients,
One of my favorite projects was a few years back. I as at Rock Point Provincial Park in Dunnvile and spent hours photographing large pieces of drift wood that washed up on the beach. The waves where nice and steady, creating some neat action shots. During my post production editing, I turned the images black and white and amped up the contrast and grain, giving the images a nice, strong dramatic look. I have printed many of these and have them hanging in my home and have created printed canvases as gifts for the holidays. I often find myself revisiting these images.
NOTE: it is best to shoot in colour and then convert the images to black and white. Colour images hold more information. You able to adjust the level of gray for each colour. It is always a great idea so you can have your choice of both options down the road.
Here are some of my favorite images from that project
