Last day of skiing today. Unless I want to tempt fate and go early tomorrow morning for one last run. 😳 Glad to say that there are no broken bones, no serious injuries. Only a slight bruise to my dignity and lower back from the snowboarder who took me out while recording on his Go Pro. I'm sure I'm going viral somewhere as I write. And up until today only managed to hug one tree. But I saved the best for last. Most stacks had were today. I could blame it on the ice but others may say it has more to do with my karaoke skills from last night. Regardless, my lack of balance and direction today meant that I made it down the mountain in probably a new (longest ever) record here. I was half expecting a candle light vigil. But feeling better already. A massage and an onsen helped. And the rest I've blocked out already 😂. S'pose I won't turn pro just yet. #upintheclouds#whiteout#nofilter
Day 15 of 365 "Tomato and Torch" In order to make up for yesterday's lackluster image, I thought I'd put in a little time and effort into today's image. I have to admit that I'm actually rather happy with the photograph, as it went from concept-to-capture in just a few minutes. While I was not sure what would be torched, I knew there would be a fork and fire. Anyway, I had a strobe on each side of the fork, and that resulted with the fork exposure. Naturally I could not acquire the correct exposure on the fork and the torch in one frame, so I had to composite the torch and tomato on to the fork. That is to say, I took two exposures for the final image. The first exposure was 1/125th of a second for the fork, then I exposed the torch and burning tomato for about 10 seconds. Placing the torch and tomato layer on top in Photoshop, I simply masked away the business end of the fork. I had no idea that the cooling of the flame would create a slightly Trump-like hairdo on the tomato. How timely! I digress. I am now imagining a whole burning series. Any suggestions? #foodphotography#photooftheday#fork#tomato#torch#whatsthatsmell#canon5markIII#canon80mm#canon580EXII#chefmaster#butane#trump#donaldtrump
The baby turned 5 over Christmas break! 😭 and she's such a little con-artist that she talked us into taking her friends #iceskating Four & five year olds on ice is not for the faint of heart! 😆 Thanks FC for keeping us on our toes these past 6 years! We can't imagine life without you! #happybirthday#5thbirthday#princewilliamicecenter
