Lighting The Way

At first, you may think these photos aren't related, but one of the most valuable talents for a photographer, is to make stuff up. If I were to be asked, I could easily tell you that the common denominator in these two photos is the affecting of light, and the idea of a single 'way'. The first photo, "We Are Not Alone", is of the Christmas eve service at my church, and the candles everyone is holding. The 'way' portion of the photo is implied and only really evident if you know that it is within a church. The second is of my father, and his glasses, driving. It's an interesting view because it shows the road, how he sees it, blurry without the glasses, and clear within. It's called simply "The Way".

Fire and Ice

Winter is the season of Ice. As the coldest time of the year is upon us, we can see its awe-inspiring effects. The snow and ice lend themselves to be photographed. These icicles, at a home in Huron Woods, Grand Bend, show great detail when photographed with the house lights (a bright orange) and a simple camera flash (a bright blue). The other photograph shows a little study I did with a Tim Hortons cup in a fireplace. It's sort of a foil for the study of icicles I made. the entire two studies are shown here at Flickr.
