This one produced using the same technique as the last one I posted. Creating texture through double exposure.
Lately I’ve been playing around a lot with creating textures that normally would be applied in photo shop in camera using double exposures. For this one I shot the first exposure using a single floodlight with a regular incandescent bulb against a slightly grainy beige wall. I then stepped in for the second exposure. I like the way this one turned out. Stay tuned for more like this. It’s a great deal of fun to play with because you can literally try just about anything texture wise. I really like how softly this one turned out.

Sun dog over downtown Calgary caused by the sun refracting off the ice crystals in the air. Even though I’ve lived in Alberta most of my life it stills astounds me that we have a weather condition known as “ice fog.” For the record it is -30 without the windchill this morning. I’m almost too afraid to look to see how cold it is with the windchill.

This fall I had the opportunity to work for a charity that means a great deal to me. I have worked at a fertility clinic for the last 6 years and over this time have seen the struggle, the heartbreak and often times the joy that comes with the experience of infertility. I applied to work as one of the photographers for Generations of Hope, a charity that raises money for infertile couples that cannot afford the extreme expense of reproductive technology and was delighted to find out that I had been selected as one of the 6 portrait artists for their annual gallery showing and fundraiser event.
The fund helps couples who would otherwise have no chance of affording the treatment they require in order to have a child; couples who very much deserve to have a child to love.
This is the wonderful family I was paired up with. The little boy loves to play, to talk, to giggle and to be silly with his parents. He’s so smart and wonderful and it’s easy to tell how much his parents love him.
It is hard to imagine that these joyful photographs would not exist if it weren’t for advanced reproductive medicine and the Generations of Hope Fund. Needless to say, I’m honoured to be a part of the gala event this year. I’m excited to see these blown up to 20x24.

There are ghosts here
You must come to them sideways / In rooms webbed in shadow, / Sneak a view of their emptiness / Without them catching.
