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.

It's been a little while since we've posted much on the blog, so I wanted to play catch up a little bit. For this installment of the photo walk summary, we take a look at some of Calgary's downtown architecture.

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.
