New Arrival for Olivia and Tim

20121027_JER4719.dng
The great thing about being a wedding photographer in Sudbury (or anywhere for that matter) is that you get a truly unique perspective of the biggest day in the life of a young couple.  And occasionally, if you’re fortunate enough to be asked by long time friends to photograph their daughter’s wedding, it makes the experience just that much better.

So today I was overjoyed to learn that the love I was witness to on the day of their wedding, has finally bore fruit.   For Olivia and Tim, today is now probably the most special of their lives, as they welcomed their first child into this world… Audrey, a beautiful baby girl.

Congratulations, Olivia and Tim on your new bundle of joy… I know she is in great hands!   All the best to you and your families, especially Vicki and Shawn!:)

Camelopardalids Meteor Shower Astrophotography

So this morning I was up bright and early to try my hand at some astrophotography for the very first time, hoping to capture glimpses of the Camelopardalids meteor shower.  I was up from 0215 to 0415, shooting the south-eastern night sky from the comfort of my back deck in here in Sudbury, Ontario.  My camera was a Nikon D3S DSLR perched atop a Manfrotto 190D tripod.  My lens of choice for this shoot was a Sigma 12-24 f4.5-5.6 wide-angle zoom.  I used the camera’s built-in interval timer shooting feature to take 30 second exposures, every 35 seconds or so.  Exposures were made in manual exposure and focus mode at f5, 30 secs, ISO 3200 zoomed to 15mm.

The photos shown here are the only ones out of the 140 or so that I took which actually contained light trails.  Most of these trails were NOT from meteors however… some were from aircraft, some satellites, but there are one or two that I believe are actually meteors… but who knows!  I’m definitely not an astronomer.  I may not have even been looking in the right part of the sky… but this was as far as I was going to go with this.  I hope you enjoy the photos.

 

And here’s a time-lapse video of all the photos taken during the this session.

Feathered Friends

Well now that spring has finally arrived here in Sudbury, the birds are returning to the north as well.  Here are some images I captured yesterday in my own backyard of the common grackle and the rose-breasted grosbeak.  Enjoy!

Ramsey Lake Skating Path Virtual Tour

For something a little different, this Family Day weekend I went down to the lake for a skate with my camera and tripod. The result of this adventure is a 360° Google Maps Views skate-thru virtual tour (comprised of 19 photospheres) of the Ramsey Lake Skating Path here in Sudbury, ON Canada. The tour begins on the shores at Science North and winds its way to the Ramsey Lake Waterdome.

To view the tour, click the photo to be taken to my blog post on Sudbury360.ca where the tour is embedded.
