So beautiful from the deck. Pikturs from Sept.
It was fun to photograph some fall family shots… but this year, I didn’t have the time like in the past. Plus the weather has played a part in the limited days I had. It was great to photograph Max’s family. She was such a sweet person at Fidelity and I missed her accent. It was also great to photography Nina also and her family.
I was happy to be a part of the 20th Annual Gus Brown Charity Golf Tourney. I was helping photograph the golfers and I was on the 11th hole with NHL Player Jay McClemment who is a super nice guy. So down to earth and this season he will playing in Carolina.
I also asked on FB for a volunteer to help me for the day and I was delighted to have Saroya Tinker with me who is going into Grade 11 and she is a hardworking hockey player herself. She is going into Grade 11 and she has already received some verbal offers from Division 1 schools in the States. She is hoping to be on the Sr. Woman’s Canadian Hockey Team.
I’m looking forward to supporting the tourney for years to come.
I got a selfie with the first woman golfer that came to my hole. I found out after it was the Mayor of Whitby who is a sweet lady. It was a nice Tourney and all the volunteers that make it all possible do a hell of a job. Thank-you to my friend Carrie for inviting me.
Love this image. I was driving to a reception venue and noticed a little farmer’s field with a little open gate. I was in front of the limo so I singled and pulled over into the shoulder and asked the couple if I could have 5 minutes with them for a little shoot in the field. One of the shots that I loved from the set was the one below.
In post-processing I wanted to add some layers to give it a different look.
I added some texture by to the image by adding some shots of swirling grass that you can see in between their heads and on the right of her head. I took out the grass that overlapped her head since what woman would want swirly lines on her face. I added some pictures of a sidewalk concrete on his shoulder and it’s tinted red. I added some blur to take away from him so your eyes concentrate on her more. I added a bit of a “vintage” feel through the image with the tones.
Here is what I was working with before the edits below:
For me… I’m always in love with this image for some reason. Such a happy couple. I do remember the grooms Mom didn’t like it since I cut him off on purpose. The shot was more with her than him.
