What I did On My Summer Vacation, Part 1-Paris

Back to reality. Last Friday my husband and I returned from our fantastic trip to Paris, Normandy and Scotland. What a marvellous holiday! Over the course of 22 days, we visited with family, experienced the history of D-Day, and went on some incredible walks and...
Light and Shadow in Street Photography

Light and Shadow in Street Photography

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you cannot shoot in harsh light! I love the deep shadows and bright light that hide and reveal subjects in a frame. Learning to see opportunities where light and shadow play together takes a bit of practice. However, once you...

Social Media is Not the Boss of Me

These days it seems that more and more photographers are spending endless amounts of time on social media. And recently I felt like I had fallen into that trap! There is too much emphasis put on likes and followers these days? And I think there is an underlying...

Silhouettes in Street Photography

Silhouettes in Street Photography

I see a little silhouetto of a man. I can’t help humming the verse from Queen’s 1975 hit, “Bohemian Rhapsody” when I’m shooting silhouettes! Photographing silhouettes is about more than capturing an underexposed figure against a bright...

Postcards from NYC – 9/11 & Ellis Island

For the last installment of my Postcards from NYC series, I have some images from the 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island to share with you. Now I live almost 4000 km away from the World Trade Centre site. And I do not know anyone directly affected by the terror attacks....
Have I Taken My Best Shot Already?

Have I Taken My Best Shot Already?
