Happy New Year!

It's been quite a while since I've properly blogged here as I ended up spending most of the past year "mini-blogging" my photography work over on Google Plus instead. I'm hoping to do a little better this year and wanted to start off with my favourite photos I took in 2013. This was a year I really grew in doing post-processing work, having acquired a couple suites of great tools (OnOne's and Nik's to be specific). I also surprised myself by starting to do a lot more work with black and white conversions, which I wasn't really interested in before.

It was pretty tough to narrow this down to only twelve, but here's what I came up with. Hope you enjoy and here's to a great 2014! Cheers!

Black and White Experiments

I hadn't been particularly interested in black and white photography, but since I got the newest version of the OnOne Perfect Suite, I've been experimenting with black and white conversions a lot more. Thanks to the new B&W tool in Perfect Suite, it makes these conversions a lot easier to play around with. Here are a few of my early results.

2013 Weekly Photo Project

Despite not being able to successfully finish last year's Project 52, I wanted to challenge myself again this year. To that end, I've joined the folks over at the G+ Weekly Photo Project for 2013.

Last week's theme was Winter (or Summer, depending on your hemisphere) and here is the photo I submitted for it:

This was taken shortly after the heavy snowfall we got here in Calgary the week before. In addition, I've been on a bit of a black-and-white experimentation kick after treating myself to a copy of the latest version of the OnOne Suite 7 set of post-processing tools.

Looking forward to taking on the challenge again!

For this installment of reviewing the G+ photo walk I went on earlier this year, I thought I would experiment a bit with some post-processing. Here's some of the results of some colour adjustments as well as some black and white conversions using a combination of Aperture and OnOne's Perfect Photo Suite.

Project52 – Mostly White Flowers

Here's another catch-up photo for Project52's week 21. In looking back through the stream from that week, it looks like I wasn't the only one confused between the 'Mostly White' and 'Flowers' themes. I went with these flowers I saw on an impromptu photowalk through downtown Victoria, BC. They were pink, so I applied a simple desaturation to get it to 'mostly white'.
