It is so much easier to wake up for a sunrise trip out of the city this time of year. The only problem is, there is not always a good weather for photography. In Alberta, we are blessed quite often with cloudless sky and very cold weather, which, as any of you, who practice landscape photography know, does not make good conditions for interesting shots. There is also the issue of road conditions, which can be problematic at the least and the cold itself.
After a brief moment of spring, winter has returned to our corner of the world. Snow is back on the ground that temperatures are back to normal. With fond memories I was looking through my back catalog of images taken in 2015. All those little trips we have taken, getting lost in the back roads of Alberta.
On the onset of this little write up, just want to warn that the images attached to this post are not really safe for work :)
Had a great opportunity to shoot with Kate again. She's an amazing model to work with. Her understanding of poses, and light is second to none. We planned an outside setting for the shoot, but it being autumn in Alberta, the weather did not cooperate. That's one thing that went wrong.
I have been slacking. Mostly because .... I guess I'm lazy. I do have a backlog of images that are asking politely to be posted somewhere... maybe someone will like them? What if no one really cares? Will that have an impact? Should it have an impact? Should our creativity be influenced by someone liking or disliking or simply not caring about the images we create
It is a dangerous territory I wade in. As my wonderful wife, Kasia, blogs here, and reads my posts. She's also a photographer. This arrangement has a lot of pluses, like being able to bounce ideas off each other, or being able to just go shoot northern lights, at the spur of the moment at 2 am in the morning.
Photographing the Aurora, is relatively easy. Tripod, wide angle lens, possibly a remote shutter cord, and patience.
