Leya with her camera

As I mentioned in my last post, this purpose of this photo session was taking Leya’s portraits for her to use the photos for her photographic bissiness. She is stunning photographer, so why not asking her to pause with her camera.

In my last blog post, I shared an photo which I tried something creative in the camera at the location. This time, I tried digitally in my computer. The wall was a kind of bold and white part 0ccupied the frame to muach so I added some texture and color to the wall. Also the image was a little too sharp so I added soft-focus effect by the same technique applied to the wall.

Animal portrait – Horses, such a gentle animal

Last weekend, I had a chance to visit my friend’s farm just outside of Calgary, Alberta. My purpose of this visit was photographing their horses. My inner images were trying to capture horses running dynamically…with a little bit motion blur. However, due to the rain before the day, the soil was pretty muddy, they could not get out to the field. So I changed strategy and tried more close-up shorts and made it animal portrait. Hmmm…I don’t know since I stop caring ribbon collecting images or my photographic vocabulary is expanding?… now, I can get images making me feel good in any situations…most of times

Talking about and horses and western theme, my 6 photos are exhibited at Calgary Stampede Western photo gallery until July 15th.
