This is a photo of the very beautiful Sophia, taken at our October 7, 2010 photo shoot at Eau Claire (here) and Prince's Island.
So, what if you woke up, and found yourself outside, surrounded by ruins?
This was from my photo shoot at Prairie Winds Park, with Diane, who was great fun to work with, and obviously very beautiful.
This was one of the few spots that afforded some shade. I liked the colour of the ceiling for background.
We took this in the playground area. I made the top blue, just because I preferred that over some purple that was in it. I made the rest black and white, especially because I didn't like the chipped yellow paint in the foreground.
The bra is actually a bright orange. So, black and white seemed to make it blend a bit better.
This is from my photo shoot with Daniella (MM# 1771851) in Fish Creek Park. Daniella was great to work with. My only regret is we couldn't stay longer (though it was a long shoot).
This is from my photoshoot in Bowness Park with Shayna Ding (MM# 1521750).
This is from my photo shoot with the very beautiful Melanie (MM#1653223) at Bowness Park in Calgary, Alberta on Sunday, June 6, 2010.
A photo taken in May 2010 with a camera I don't use much anymore. I just noticed in on the memory card when I used it again.
This is Jasleen at one of the campsight shelters. I liked how her coat looked like it was blowing in the wind (even though I don't think it was).
This is Sandeep at a park camp site.
This is Mandeep under the Macleod Trail bridge that passes over Fish Creek. She and Sandeep played with splashing water, which was a great idea, but I was signficantly limited by the lack off wireless camera flash (I had a flash on a cord). So, all the splash shots have shadows. But, I still liked them.
This is Jasleen pretending to take a sip from Fish Creek, under the MacLeod Trail bridge.
This is Sandeep under the Macleod Trail bridge that crosses Fish Creek. The blurry background is the stones by the water (blur was intentional). This spot seemed to give the best light I thought.
In another pic of Sandeep, it was suggested that the eyes should be brighter. In this one, I got a sharper brighter picture of the eye closest to the camera. With a shallow DoF, and shadow, the other eye is less clear. I like this effect, but not sure if others agree.
This is Mandeep in a small burnt out area in the park. I made it black and white so she and her outfit (which had lots of colour), would match the tree, which lacked colour.
Calgary had it's annual Zombie Walk on Saturday, October 17, 2009. The undead arose at Olympic Plaza, staggered down Stephen Avenue Walk, then limped to Tomkins Park for a rest, and finally undied at Shaw Millennium Park. This year the event was used to collect food and funds for the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank. For the first time, I used a Canon EF 50mm f/1.88 II lens, which for it's price, is quite good for what I wanted, which was to create a small depth of field effect, and to have a fast shutter speed.
Apparently, the undead can take pictures too.
Zombies can be beautiful too.
