365 photo challenge

I will be testing my photography skills and my intestinal fortitude in the next year with trying to take a picture that is interesting every single day, starting Jan 1, 2010. I hope you stop in and visit me to comment. :) Oh and wish me luck LOL.

A couple from today

These photo's remind me of something they would use in an ad. Had to share :) Leap Frog Fridge magnets and a Littlest Pet Shop. Both awesome toys!

Sometimes while just snapping away you get a picture that just makes you smile. This is one for me.

It's official I have been published. :)

Yes it's a small publication in English in Quebec but you always remember your first time.

Guess it's time

For another update from me. I have been trying to get time to take pictures but with a houseful of sickies it hasn't been easy. I did manage to take some great ones of my SIL's family and of my new niece. She is adorable :) Enjoy the pictures. Oh and if you know of anyone in the Quebec area who is looking for a great deal send them my way. I will exchange a session and an 8X10 for models. Once I open for business for real I will charge standard session fees. That is a ways off thouugh.

As an aspiring photographer I love following and reading the blogs of other peole who share my passion. One of my favorite ones is http://thesavvyphotographer.blogspot.com . She is having a fabulous giveaway this week for a workshop workbook and I would so love to win it. :) On a side note I finally saved enough money to get a used flash and no I am trying to figure out how to use it. This could be interesting. Dh's nefew's wedding is next week and I hope I can get some great pictures.

The runner ups...

What I did this weekend

We had a very fun and exciting Friday morning. On our trip to the grocery store we noticed jets overhead. Well all thoughts of shopping were abandoned and we headed into the river valley. This is what we came upon...

And my first attempt at a collage...
And take 2!

A photographer or just snap happy.

I would say 90% of my pictures are just snapshots. I find I don't enjoy the art of photography so much if every single shot I take I am trying to compose it properly and get everything just so. I also think some of my better shots have come just when I am having fun trying to capture the moment while still being a part of it. I think I need to ask more photogs what they feel.

Canon 55-250 IS Arrived

I got in a new lens yesterday and had to take it out for a test drive. Here are just a few sample pictures. Minimal adjustments done. I did have a fair bit of lens shake on the boat picture because of extremely high winds. The rest were handheld. I love the new lens. It may be one of the cheaper zooms but it has good reach and a good copy.

Canadian Coast Guard

fun and games!

Enough already
