I have decided to share photos of Autumn for this post. These photos were taken between September 1st and October 31st. They were taken throughout the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, including Blomidon Beach, Halls Harbour and just around the area . Photography is still one of those activities, for me at least, that is very therapeutic. I see pretty much everything I look at as a photograph and hope that the special light I’m seeing or the beautiful colours I’m seeing translate into my photos. I have chosen several photos that do just that. I hope you see what I saw in the pictures I am posting today. Enjoy!

Photography is Therapy

First I’d just like to say I’ve reached another milestone in visitors reaching over 30,000. Yeah!!

Now for this post I thought I’d show some of my photographs again. As I mentioned before, I am not a professional photographer but I love taking pictures. It’s so easy to just get lost in so many little moments while searching for the right angle or the perfect light. It truly is therapy for the soul.

I have this real love/hate thing going on with bugs. The creepier or more colourful they are the more I want to photograph them, then all I want to do is step on them (not that I always do). The first set of photos is mainly creepy crawlies with a couple of other close-ups.

This second set are just photos that I really like. I always look for strange or weird things to take pictures of as well, like a rotten banana with maggots or a deformed tree trunk. In any case I do hope you enjoy viewing my photographs. I know I loved taking them.

Canadian Photographer of the Month – Robin Hindle

OK, so I’m not a professional photographer but I have had many jobs taking photos for pay over the past 30 years. I mainly took photos of show suites and building sites for real estate developments and product photography for an electrical wholesaler to use in the catalogues that I designed. I also did a few weddings in my younger days of photography.

My passion though has always been close-up or macro photography. I had a 35mm camera with a few lenses including a nice macro lens, but it broke. I now have a new digital back for my old lenses and have started taking  photos again. So I thought I’d share with you some of the close-up/macro photos that I have taken lately. It’s been quite a while since using these lenses and I’m still learning  about the new body but I think these are some of my best photos.I hope you enjoy them.

Canadian Photographer of the Month

This month I am featuring Sophie Photo, a talented photographer in Victoria, BC. Well actually two people, Sophie and Rob. But for this post I will be talking about Sophie Lecavalier.
Sophie contacted me to do a remake on her logo. When I went to her site I really liked what I saw so I said yes to the logo remake and I enjoyed Sophie’s work so much that I decided I’d like to feature her on my blog this month.
Here is a small portion of her bio. You can see the rest on her site at http://sophiephoto.com/ .
Sophie has been passionate about photography for 20 years now and with the advent of the digital age this passion only increases each day.
Over the past 20 years she has taken courses, self-study and continually updated her skills. She has perfected her practical and technical abilities so her camera is an extension of herself. She can concentrate on the emotions and connections that make the difference between a good picture and a great one. She now offers that experience to your family or business.
One of Sophie’s latest passions in her photography is doing Glamour photo shoots. Although there are not very many in her portfolio yet, I can see already that she’s already doing a fantastic job.
Here are a few samples of Sophie’s photography. To see more please visit her website http://sophiephoto.com/ .
