I spent some time at the beach on the way home the other night. I was down by the waterworks getting ready to set up a shot and then I noticed some crazy lightning on the water. I thought for a brief moment that I may want to try to capture that, and then I thought about the metal tripod and my stature as the most exposed object in an very wide open space. I got back to the car. Quickly.
Here’s a fun image that I did get.
I guess it’s not very beachy. But it is the message that the lightning seemed to be giving me.
It occured to me as I took this first shot, that if there are going to be hefty tickets for using a cell phone while driving, I probably shouldn’t be snapping off pictures while I am on the highway. Oh well, i liked the outcome.
The second shot is an ongoing quest, I love the look of these Condo development near McCowan and Ellesemere, and I am searching for the perfect night shot of it, as I was exploring the area last night, a bus went by at just the right time.
There’s a whole lot happening in the life of jmphotography. This week has seen my first engagement shoot (Shots to appear here shortly) My first hanging of work, and the launch of the new site and this blog. I had the opportunity to shoot the engagement of my good friend Trevor and his beautiful fiancé Zuska, and as I said some of those shots will be up soon. They were the perfect couple for a first time engagement shoot! Starbucks at Yonge and Avondale (Sheppard) has given me space to hang my work. I’ve also talked to a couple of other locations and have secured space for futer showings. And fianally, the new site is up! I’m still in the stage where I would prefer not to pay for hosting, Showitfast.com is the perfect solution for that. you can check out my new site here
