Tiny feet cradled by mom and dad. Baby feet that are small for only a very short time. One of the lovely little details from a studio newborn photography session.

Winter Portrait and a Return To Black and White

winter portrait

As spring is just around the corner, I thought I would show one of my favorite winter portraits while the snow is still on the ground. Reflecting my current preference for shooting, the image is in timeless black and white.

I find myself returning more and more to black and white, returning to the style of photography that made me fall in love with the medium. Perhaps this is how it often goes. We start out in photography for love, then twist what we do to meet our clients needs in order to make a living, but in the end we find we need to return to the style of shooting we love. It seems I am slowly completing that circle, black and white is coming to the forefront plus an interesting (non-commercial) project in its infancy. Stripping away all the fakeness of photoshopped images in their over-processed ways, and going back to the basics, photography is becoming interesting again.

The historic park area of Heritage Square always has an added sense of nostalgia once the snow arrives. Black and white enhances the historic feel and also helps to define the architectural qualities of the buildings housed in the square.

New Watercolour Painting of Red Deer

I have been trying for weeks to get out to paint the fall leaves, however life has a way of getting very busy and painting is the last thing on the “to do” list.

Yesterday I finally squeezed in a quick 20  minute paint down at McKenzie Trails in Red Deer, Alberta (Canada). I haven’t done watercolours in forever, but it seemed like the right choice for a quick paint. There is something to be said for working fast, the work is freer and less contrived, plus it allows one to be just a little more abstract.
