To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Day 176 - My music man

After updating my blog yesterday, I was suddenly overcome by extreme dizziness and nausea.  Not quite sure what it was, but it kept me in bed for the rest of the day and evening.  I even missed an invitation to dinner that I had cancelled my weekend trip to Quebec City for.  What a disappointment.  Maybe it was being out in the cold for over two hours that brought me down.

I was better today, so I went out this afternoon for an hour to get some fresh air, but mainly because I needed to pick something up from a friend.  And I took that opportunity to show him the forest I often go to, since he wanted some Fall photos to send home to his family.

I saw a few birds today, but I returned home and found my son practising his scales on the trumpet.  Incidentally, he also plays the recorder and the piano.  So, I do have a few subjects to study through the winter months.  Again, I tried flash, and got terrible results.  So, I stuck to the table lamp for illumination. Damn the flash!

I got a few different compositions and angles, but processed these to begin with.  I'd love to know which of the three you liked most.
