So, we didn’t actually get to see the huge flock my uncle was lucky enough to experience, but it’s not everyday a city slicker like myself gets to see at least 10 eagles just hanging out on the river!
Last week, an uncle informed my mom that there were over 30 eagles hanging out by a lake just off the Portage diversion. He complained that his point-and-shoot camera was useless in it’s ability to capture this monumental moment. Naturally, mom suggested I put my telephoto lens to work early Friday morning – so that’s what we did:
We got to the bridge my uncle has witnessed the flock, but only saw a lone eagle sunning in the middle of the river…
I was recently given the opportunity to take advantage of photography classes and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the challenging and extremely fun homework assignments.
The latest task involved employing the motion blur technique and natural framing composition. I immediately thought to ask my girlfraaan and fellow blogger, Gazel, if she would be kind enough to model for me.
Thanks again for being SO PATIENT while I learned to navigate shutter speed and aperture, Gazel! I had a great time taking these <3
I’ve developed an addiction to tights over the past few years and finally got fed up with the mess I’d make riffling through the bunched up nylons I had carefully scrunched up into my sock dresser. After scouring the internet for a more organized way to store them in such a way that would appease my Type-A personality, I came across this really simple idea. The original suggested gluing the wooden pins to the wall or a dresser, but I prefer a less permanent and much more versatile option:
I’m still deciding on a colour to paint it, but that probably won’t happen until Spring Cleaning 2k15!
Late last month/year a few friends invited me to take part in a maternity photo shoot. I’m really, really happy with how the photos turned out – but of course it wasn’t hard with such a gorgeous and photogenic model! Congrats Jenny and Jay-R on the birth of their first son Brody!
Here are a few of my favorite shots:
