Well its Sunday morning and there is coffee in the pot and the Australian grand prix on the TV.I love racing,especially open wheel racing.As sit here and watch the camera angles and shots that the BBC uses as their coverage I see shots that would make great photos.I cant wait to get to the Edmonton Indy to get my chance to shoot.I hope that I can rent a decent large lens that i get some good shots.The problem with shooting motor sports you are quite far away and you need to have a fast lens.This will be the first year that I have had a good digital camera to shoot.This I hope will be a big difference in my shooting style.I can shoot and shoot and not have to worry about how much it will cost me to develop the film.
Yesterday I shot my favorite subject up here.A red hut that is beside my house.I am not sure why I love it so much but it calls to me.It is an old Hudson Bay company out building that a neighbor has bought and uses as storage.It white with a red door.There is lots of texture and the light and shadow plays well in the shots that I take.It also was a subject of one of my first photographic exercises.The course that I was taking asked us to look at an building over period of time.The excises was to observe the way that light hit the structure over an entire day and then over several days.I find my self drawn to this building .I have shot it in B&W,color in portrait and landscape.I have yet to take the perfect photo of it but have been pleased with many of the outcomes of my experiments.
I am still studying my camera.I have come to the conclusion that the more I play with it the better photographer I will become.
Toady's shot is ones of the red hut.
