Anticipating Spring – Photo of the Week

Photo of the Week is back. I’ve been fighting the flu for the past two weeks and haven’t had much energy to do except get myself through my work days. But I’m starting to feel a bit better and so finally, back to photography. Phew! I was going through withdrawal. 🙂

This week’s Photo of the Week is a portrait of a tulip, taken last year during Ottawa’s world-famous Tulip Festival. The beds of tulips provide a sea of colour and are a photographer’s mecca. Most of us here in Ontario have had enough of winter and are eagerly awaiting spring. So I thought I’d post something to help keep our spirits high, knowing that the lush greens and colourful blooms of spring are not far away.

This year I’ll be teaching my fine art flower photography workshop on May 11th, during the tulip festival. We’ll take advantage of the colourful blooms to learn different creative techniques for producing beautiful fine art flower images.

Photo of the Week – It Came!

I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday so far. I’m finally back to my Photo of the Week. This week’s photo is focused on something I love and something we now have a lot of – SNOW! In my last Photo of the Week, I was lamenting our 1 measly cm of snow and how a white Christmas was all I was wishing for. Well, my wish came true! And now we  60 cm of beautiful, gorgeous, snow to photograph.

So tune in to see the Photo of the Week by clicking on the thumbnail below.

Photo of the Week – Muted Colours of Autumn

Saturday was a grey, dreary day of torrential rain. After our summer drought we needed it to make up for the little we’d had in the past 3 months, but it didn’t have to come all in one day! As you can imagine, it was a tad ‘damp’ outside and neither me nor my camera gear would have been happy out there. So instead, we brought a little bit of nature inside to photograph.

This week’s Photo of the Week is of some dead ferns in our backyard. Each fall these once vibrant green ferns take on the muted browns and greys of fall. To me, the absence of colour focuses the eye more on texture and lines and so these images have a certain beauty of their own.

Photo of the Week – Fine Art Flower Photography

Happy Belated Labour Day to those around the world who celebrate this holiday. It’s back to school time and fall is in the air. But this week’s Photo of the Week is about spring. Yes, I’m in withdrawal. 🙂 Actually, I’m in the process of writing my first ebook, about Fine Art Flower Photography. And looking at my library of flower images has me itching for spring again. Guess I’ll have to wait a few months…. 😉
