27. Three

Three stone diamond engagement ring, illuminated with strobe bounced above with pin lighting from fiber optic strands. The white gold band is thrown out of focus by the shallow depth of field of the macro lens at f5.0.

19. Turbulence

20060119.jpg

I still don't know where I saw these originally. I like the colours that are in this one. Only a little work in post, mostly increase of saturation.

18. Complementary

20060118.jpg

I saw this idea on another site the other day (can't remember where right now, I'll try to post about it later) so I thought I'd giev it a try. I am happy with the results, though I think I will try a few different things next time.

17. More Snow

20060117.jpg

Yet more snow. I was going to take some other shots tonight to break things up a bit, but I was missing something I needed for the shoot. Maybe tomorrow.

16. Red Planet

20060116.jpg

When I was reviewing my shots from this past weekend, this one stood out and it made me think of images I have seen of Mars, probably Hollywood based.

14. Seen Better Days

20060114.jpg

Some links about copyright reform in Canada I had other, but neglected to save the file when asked...

Speaking out of Turn - Matthew Good
The Bulte Video - Michael Geist
Money in Politics, Conflicts for Copyright
Cory Doctorow's Boing Boing Post
...fundraiser for Liberal MP a 'worry'
Election Night In Canada - False Positives
Fading Ways Records Press Release
CopyrightWatch.ca

Michael Geist has also released his latest book, In The Public Interest: The Future of Canadian Copyright Law under a Canada Creative Commons License. It is a good read if you are interested in copyright reform.

11. Snow in Gold and Blue

20060111.jpg

I have done some work in post on this, trying to mimic a dual toning image, gold and blue. I am not happy with this now, though I will have to have another look again tomorrow.

10. John

20060110.jpg

This silhouette of John was shot this weekend. The snow was nice with a lot of texture, and the conditions were the best we have had this winter so far, but still not ideal. Hopefully the coming weeks things improve.

08. One Step

20060108.jpg

Finally, a little snow to shoot. It started falling Saturday night when I was out playing soccer and I commented to Leanne about the great texture in the snow. Fortunately, it hadn't melted by the next morning.

06. Going Up

20060106.jpg

Shot at the Atrium in the Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls. While cameras are not allowed in the gaming section of the casino, we were not bothered while walking around the public areas and corridors outside of the casino gaming area.

04. Self Portrait #6

20060104.jpg

I don't really want to complain about the weather, it's been fairly warm so my heating bills should be down, my time spent shovelling has been almost non-existant, but I have not been able to get any decent winter shots.

This is yours truly.
