Week 4 – My favourite image of the week is the only portrait shot of the week. I’m also chronically my Project 366 on my website, so if you’d like to see the entire gallery please visit my site at



Day 27 - Tulips


Week 3 was a little more challenging. Temperatures in the -30Cs most of the week made for some cold weather photography.

My favourite image from the week was an experiment that worked! It was a technique that I read about a while back in a photo magazine about taking photos while being a passenger. You use a slow shutter speed/small aperture and create a blur of a scene as you pass. We were on the way home from running errands and I decided that I’d give it a shot. It worked great on a day that had such flat light. ISO 100, 55mm, f/36, 1/6 sec

Day 15 - Winter Abstract

It’s been cold here in Calgary the past couple of days. It’s currently -29C/-20F with a windchill of -38C/-36F and dropping. You’d think I would find some subjects inside but I’m compelled to shoot outside – there is was a delicate frost covering everything.

I had a lot of fun with week 2. Ending it by experimenting with my veri-ND filter at Elbow Falls was the highlight.

Day 14 - Elbow River

On January 1st I started Project 366. This is a year long project with the object of taking one photograph each and every day… not as easy as it sounds but I’m looking forward to the challenge. I’ll post the images each week so that you can share the journey.

As part of my new year’s goals, I’ve decided to bring my photography blog back to life. I hope that you enjoy reading about my photography experiences throughout the year.

For Christmas my son gave me a variable ND filter and when we headed out yesterday to Big Hill Springs Provincial Park I had a perfect opportunity to play with my new toy.
