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.

I've been away from the blog for quite a while as I've spent a lot more time "mini-blogging" over on Google+ instead. I found myself with a bit of (rare) free time, so I wanted to dust this thing off and start posting some photography again.

So to get the ball rolling again, I wanted to share a few seascapes from beautiful British Columbia that I took last year and finally got to reviewing/editing recently.

Project52 – Sunset Colours

I've recently acquired a Canon 5D Mk1 (used, of course) and am trying to get the hang of it. It's a little tricky using it compared to the 7D, which has been my primary for the last couple of years or so. A lot of the controls feel like they're in the wrong place and its ergonomics just feels off.

Anyway, I took it out to shoot some landscapes earlier this week for the Project52 'Sunsets' theme. This one was taken in the deep SE of Calgary, not too far from the city limits.

Google Plus celebrated its first anniversary at the end of June and a lot of photographers around the world helped celebrate by going on a photo walk in their local areas on June 30th. The Calgary instance of the walk was organized by Jeff McDonald and Olivier Du Tré. We had a great time and over the next few posts, I'll be sharing some of the photos I took during the walk.

Of course, we have to kick this off with a shot of the downtown Calgary skyline taken from Sunnyside Bank Park.
