The photo that got me going again.

I’m really a firm believer in “The camera doesn’t matter”. Sure, I’m always taking a look at new and upcoming equipment. I love technology. I just don’t think having the latest and greatest makes you a better photographer. My blog is going to focus on the images I produce and what I was thinking when I shot them. I will tell you how I imagined  they would turn out and how I processed them. Take a look at the shot below. I shot this one at the Goodrich – Loomis Conservation Area in Northumberland County, Ontario Canada. It was shot hand held with a pretty low shutter speed (1/40 of a sec. at f3.5). This shot made it into a National Geographic book called “Life in Color” and get this, it was shot with a Canon S3 IS 6MP camera. You just never know where a photo might end up. The thing I really like about this shot, along with the amazing colours, is the many animal shapes that show up in the water. I can see an eagle in the gold flow at the top and a diving penguin on the bottom left corner. The big one is the dolphin shape right in the middle. What can you see?

This shot really got me back into photography after a much too long hiatus. My old Nikon FE is now simply a cherished possession. Most of the shots you will see on my portfolio web site were taken with the Canon S3 IS but most of them are with a Fuji X10.

More images to come. In the mean time stop by my portfolio site and take a look around.
