I cannot believe how busy I’ve been lately that I haven’t been around to post anything on my blog. I have also not been able to respond back to all your comments, and I sincerely apologize. I’ll do my best to catch up with you all very soon.
The season is in full bloom, brilliant colors everywhere and I barely noticed. That’s what happens when you’re stuck inside everyday. I did a photo shoot for a lovely couple a week ago, which gave me a chance to take some images of the changing leaves before they are completely gone.
I really did enjoy the shoot, the Autumn colors provided a beautiful backdrop for one laid-back session. The images came out real nice and the couple loved them.
If you’ve been a follower of my blog, you may realize that I have posted quite a few photos taken at the Montreal Botanical Garden. This place is rich with photo opportunity, both in the greenhouses as well as outdoors (during summer time that is). They host several events year-round as well. It’s been a while since my last visit to the Garden, but I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see the Mosaiculture. It was on all summer, but since I have been really busy with work, I’ve only got the chance to take a peek last Saturday. So glad I did, because it was absolutely amazing! I have posted these same photos on my Facebook page, but I thought I’d post it here as well, since many of you haven’t “liked” my page yet (hint! hint!). Anyways, enjoy the photos. I hope you like them. By the way, all these photos were taken with the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens. Yep, I finally bought it, and I just love it!
Linking with the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is Saturated.
My niece is someone who hates being in front of the camera (hmmm, I wonder where she got that from?) So during those rare moments when I can catch her off-guard, I usually have a field day. I was playing with her on Sunday and she just looked absolutely relaxed and carefree. Grabbed the camera and started clicking away.
I managed to get a few, until she decided she’s had enough…this was the look she gave us just before she stormed out of the room with that “diva” attitude that we’ve all come to love.
I am sorry I’ve been missing every one, and haven’t been responding or commenting on your wonderful blogs, but work has gotten in the way recently.
I also still have over a thousand photos from the wedding to sort through, which I suspect will take me a few more days, so I must briefly walk away from my “editing duties” to catch some air before I resume again.
Anyhow, I am contemplating on purchasing the Sigma 35 f/1.4 lens for my 6D. I’ve read several reviews and actually held the lens in my hand. I haven’t tested it yet though, which is the next thing to do on my list. Has anyone bought/used/rented this lens? I am 70% convinced that I will get it, but I also wanted to hear from someone who’s actually used it. Your thoughts would really be greatly appreciated.
* Note: Sorry, I know the photo has nothing to do with the post, but I thought it’d be fun to include it
Some say when you find the “one”, you’ll know. They were high school sweethearts, who fell deeply in love. Ten years of being together, their love will only grow stronger. Theirs is a love story like no other.
