Here are photos that were used in our gallery show by the pro photo program at North Island College. They were put in the Courtenay museum for 2 weeks, one extra week then planned!
All photos are of the Lower Mainland, Vancouver area.
Pennsylvania Station. New York, 1943.
By Alfred Eisenstaedt
One of my many favourites from Eisenstaedt.
You’re head and eyes are the ones forming the picture, you’re camera is just the machine capturing it.
Pictures from our second to last Landscape & Nature course at Tomato Creek.
We woke up at 3 or 4 AM to get here, suppose to be 4:30 or 5, for 6. By the time we were finished it was almost lunch time! It was fun to be up to sort of see the sunrise, it was cold, windy and tiring. But I got a few nice pictures.
Although, I still have no clue why where we were was called “Tomato Creek.”
Now I am graduated from my photography course. I’m back to taking photos for my pleasure until I start my own business or get a photography job. (More photos from my courses to come!)
Anyways today is Canada Day, so I went to the Cloverdale Amphitheatre to check out the festivities.
It was quite hot, we (as in my family and I) walked around a bit, ate some carnival foods, but mostly tried to stay out of the heat. By the end, when we were sitting eating food, I heard some wonderful music playing!
The musicians on stage were, Good for Grapes! A native Vancouverite band, which I have now fallen in love with. So, I began taking pictures and I got some great ones I’m pretty proud of. I couldn’t get pictures of everyone unfortunately. Maybe the next time I see them! (Not featured Sean MacKeigan who plays Accordion and Jesse Brook who plays Trombone, Trumpet and Flute!)
What do you think?
Photos from our second field trip in Landscape/Nature class to Butterfly World in Coombs, B.C. and some water shots. It was very hot in Butterfly world, cool creatures, and pretty butterflies!
Then, I had to get creative to take photos of water, low shutter speeds and not the best lighting. I think I got pretty creative though.
