This weeks photo challenge is nature straight out of the camera.

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 11: Long Exposure – Fireworks

For this weeks photo challenge I chose fireworks because of having more than one opportunity to take some photos with the Calgary Stampede having them every night.

The first night it was a bit cloudy, so the pictures had clouds in the background, but when I went another time it was a clear sky and the pictures turned out better.

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 10: Bridge

This weeks photo challenge is from The Daily Post Photo Challenges. This past weeks Challenge was Bridge. I went to Moraine Lake the other day and while on the way back I stopped into a spot in Lake Louise that I found in May. Just before getting to this spot I had seen the photo challenge and I got an idea while I was walking on a path and I knew I’d have the idea photographed before I left Lake Louise.

For this weeks photo challenge I chose the challenge after taking some photos. On Saturday I went out to the Canada Day fireworks and while I was waiting for the show to start I was taking photos throughout the wait and I really liked this one showing the cityscape with the sunset. The sunset was amazing to photograph because of the thunderstorm we had earlier in the day. Read more [...]

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 8: Landscape – B&W

For this weeks photo challenge I chose B&W Landscape

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 7: Bokeh

For this weeks challenge I chose Bokeh as the challenge. I've been seen different pictures online that gave me this inspiration for this challenge. For the picture with the hearts behind the mug I would do a few things differently next time. I would make the piece of paper in front of the lens bigger and would cut out a bigger heart, so there won't be a shadow cast over the majority of the picture. I would also have even lighting on both sides to try and avoid the shadow cause by the mug. Read more [...]
