Light Hunters & Photography

 I've been busy the last few days viewing the world through the lense of my Rebel. Light Hunters began on Canada Day, which was great because I was out and about the entire day with no shortage of things to shoot.

The image above was one of the first I shared with our class. It's simple, but I like the way the light plays off the clouds.

I shot this one on Canada Day as well, but couldn't resist playing with it.

I'm still enjoying shooting self-portraits ala Wading In. This is from yesterday, after I had my hair cut. I keep shooting photos of myself because I find it engaging to keep exploring what I am capable of and to see what else I can learn about who I am. It seems like an odd paradox that in focusing on what's on the outside, I am afforded glimpses of what's on the inside.

I'm printing the self-portraits I have created as I go along with the idea that by the end of the year, I will have a really wonderful documentation not only of a year in my life, but also of the journey that I've taken in exploring a new medium. I'm pretty excited about the prospect of creating a body of work that is uniquely me.
