Photography has become such a big part of me, but you may not know it if you’ve been following my (lack of) progress here on the blog lately. Though my blogging has been minimal of late, and though my street photography has been non-existent, I have still been shooting.
In an effort to challenge myself and grow as a photographer, I have made a conscious effort to shoot what matters to me rather than scour the streets looking for an image to jump out at me. I still enjoy snapping those random moments in time, but I’m at a stage where I want to dive deeper and grow. So, I recently set up a job to shoot photos at a conference, and donate the proceeds.
Above are the final results of a day’s work, and I’m happy with the way things went… especially considering I had five minutes or less with each of my subjects.
In an upcoming post, I’ll share some images of a recent photo shoot I did with a top Ottawa chef. The shoot was the first in an ongoing series I am working on with a group of the region’s best chefs, and I am really excited to share the journey.
Cool. I’m looking forward to see your work with the Ottawa chef (good idea, perhaps I’ll talk to one of my chef friends..)
Thanks Cardinal, you should definitely talk to one of your chef friends.
Well done, Shane! Portrait photography is something I’m not at all comfortable with, so hats off to you. And like Max, I’m looking forward to your chef series!
Thanks Stacy! I’m excited to see where this chef project leads. I’m fascinated with cooking and there a really great food movement evolving here.
Great shots, Shane. You’ve got the lighting just right! We all need something to shake up the process every once in a while, and you seem to have hit the nail on the head! Nice work! 🙂
Thanks so much! I really enjoy doing this kind of thing and love working with speedlights. The possibilities are endless.
These are great! You got real smiles out of your subjects.
