|#1 Green Points: a lens baby shot of the tip of a branch of an unidentified cactus tree. Taken on the Sunshine Coast while on our BC Vacation this summer|
|#2 Close Up: Rebecca wanted to do a vintage pin up shoot, but she wasn't going to model. She was going to do make up and provide the outfits, then her friend couldn't make it so she filled in. Flickr likes her.|
|#3 Lion's Gate Bridge: We spent Easter in Vancouver as it lined up with Sarah being done at UBC. This is from a drive Kim and I did through Stanley Park.|
|#4 Mountain Glory: A shot from Sulfur Mountain in Banff, I went up with my niece and brother and law in March.|
|#5 Splash: An idea that worked. Smantha Greenwood stepped up to do this shoot when she heard that another model had backed out. I'm glad she did and flickr seems to agree :)|
|#6 Lounging: another shot of Rebecca.|
|#7 Light Stage Left: this was the first shoot I did with Cactus V radio triggers. Made it very easy to change the flash location, title reflects what I was thinking.|
|#8 White Cherry Tree: Another Easter in Vancouver shot. A combo of my Sigma 8-16 MM Utlra Wide and my improving skills with PhotoShop. I removed two people talking right beside the tree and a number of parked cars from the left hand side.|
|#9 Calgary by Sunrise: My first shot of 2011. I may try to recreate it now the bow is almost done.|
|#10 Hair: a shot of Samantha Greenwood. I had to create some of that hair in PhotoShop. Not much just enough to fill in a gap in the arrangement that I didn't notice when shooting.|
|#11 Legs by the Water. Fun with the Ultra Wide and Samantha Greenwood. Here I used PhotoShop to fill in the grass so it didn't distract from the shot.|
|#12 Light Stage Right: Another lighting experiment with Rebecca|
I track all the shots that make my all time top 10%. For 2011 125 shots have made it so far. I still have some 2011 pictures to post and late 2011 shots could still break into the the top 10% in 2012.
It's been a good year for my photography. Thanks to Kim for putting up with me wandering off to shoot stuff and all the people who agreed to pose for me in 2011.
