WWE #29: It’s as much about the clouds

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #29 Photo Challenge.

Some interesting clouds over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at sunrise. The line of small clouds makes me think of birds.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Cropping the Shot

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Cropping the Shot although I must admit that I ignored the instructions in the prompt and went my own way.

That’s because I very rarely crop. I was taught in art school to get it right in camera and it’s still something I practice today. Having spent decades shooting colour transparency film for clients and editors there was no option to crop, what ever was in the shot stayed in the shot.

However, modern digital equipment does have one huge advantage for me. Zoom lenses are finally good enough to use. I never found a zoom good enough to use alongside my prime lenses in the film era which resulted in me carrying between six and eight primes.

Using zoom lenses allows me to crop precisely in camera and shoot multiple versions of a scene. So here’s some in camera crops of Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at sunrise one morning.

I will start off with a wide view before cropping sections of the view using my zoom lenses.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: My Summer Space

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: My Summer Space.

As it’s now been weeks since Ontario closed parks and public places I am missing my early morning visits to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline.

So I decided to go with a small selection of photos taken at the closest shoreline location to home. I also decided to go back six or seven years as there was lots of photos from that time frame that I had never used in a blog post. All the photos feature a sailboat that used to be moored on that section of Colpoy’s Bay at the time.
