I can't believe a whole month has flown by since my last post. September just seemed to be one busy blur with me back to teaching and lecturing and Cool and Luke back to school and their after school activities. No excuses here, I need to find focus to keep my blog up to date daily. I will endeavor to do so in the future. Here are my Instagram 366 photo's up to yesterday.
October 5, 2012 Went to a special mass for the Malayalam community in Calgary at Our Lady Grace Church. Earlier in the day I had downloaded the new multi-exposure tool for Hipstamatic and I had a particular image in my mind all day. When I arrived at the church the elements I wanted for the photo where there and I used the Hipstamatic app on multi-exposure and the BlacKeys film style. After photographing the statues face inside the church I went out and photographed the bell. It Only took two attempts to get the image to line up the way I wanted and I titled the photo "For whom does the bell toll?" ALthough I liked the effect I brought the image into snapseed where I added a filter from the vintage file which gave me the colouring I wanted. The final image below was also cleaned up afterwards in photoshop in order to eliminate some power lines from the background. I feel the image achieved what I had envisioned earlier in the day.
September 26, 2012 Fall is fleeting here in Calgary as the colours change rapidly and the leaves fall off shortly after. Walking the boys to school after an evening of heavy rain I saw this wonderful reflection of the tree and colours. Getting down very close to the water with my iPhone I was able to get the perspective I wanted.
