Spring is Coming

Caught this juvenile swan on the Toronto lakeshore last spring. Since winter is now upon us, I thought a reminder of spring to come would be nice. A larger version can be seen on Flickr.

    Almost didn't notice it, but I really like this.

  • Thanks. I hope to do stuff like this in the future that's less subtle. Alas, that'll take some more engineering work that I haven't done yet. :)

  • Cool! How did you do this? Is there some technique I should read about?

  • Probably. Or perhaps even it's some technique I should write about. ;) Short version: I used a photo-stencil as my sole illumination source. See lots more of those e.g. here: flickr.com/groups/594829@N24 -- my change is just to use it as illumination for a face. It's a technique I plan to work a lot more on... I'll surely write about it, eventually.

Deer Jokes

Deer Jokes

Caught this one on Christmas Eve, as I was driving to my parents house. A young buck that I was trying to photograph meandered up to an older buck, and it looked like he was telling a joke...at least, one would naturally figure, by the creased eyes and smile expression on the elders face. ;) Thought it was worthy of Photo.SE's weekly featured image.

    It seems to have a white line on the right edge that doesn't look too good. Apart from that, nice photo!
