  • Jay Scott Photography: Zoo 2014 - 6
    as one type of flower finishes blooming another begins As I write this we have had more than double our usual rainfall and it shows in the mosquitoes The swarm that flew into my van when I chose my first location for this week s Challenging Reality post was enough to make me squirm I closed the door as quickly as the electronics were close it and chose somewhere not as interesting but without lot more pavement and far fewer skeeters Before our unexpected monsoon season there is just a nice amount of water to create a reflection with the light and grass to play among in the meditation garden The light in this next photo is definitely not something I would want to be doing portraits in but if you are looking for sharp contrast with bright colors the light near noon is what you are asking for When else can you find ridiculous bright highlights with incredibly dark shadows It may not be the best or portraiture but it has a beauty and character all of its own Posted by Jay at 9 53 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 canada geese dew fauna flora forestry farm macro pollen reflection saskatoon snow geese spring stigma swan zoo 1 comment CallingForth July 9 2014 at 1 06 PM I think I need to pay the zoo a visit Thanks for the reminder that it is a fascinating beautiful place Reply Delete Add comment Load more Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Challenging Reality The Portfolio All Photos on 500px Photo Sets Bigger Things Eclectic Fauna Flora Food Little Things People Scenery Skies Sports Latest 500px Uploads Loading Tweets by jayscottphoto Blog Archive 2014 41 October 2

  • Jay Scott Photography: Ma & Pa
    had our maternity family photos done last week and from what we have seen of the preview are very happy with them It helps that we knew our photographer quite well are confident in her style and easy going nature and that all of us involved were pretty laid back about the process She has an immeasurably greater amount of experience working with people than I do so I was taking mental notes the whole time She also offered me the opportunity to shadow her on some of her shoots in the future which I intend to capitalize upon because observing a professional work like that is invaluable experience and education Here s one BTS shot from the session Love that tree from 2012 I have been continuing on with Angie s biweekly photos Below you ll see her at 34 weeks the photo we made just this past Monday She had to change outfits from the original series because those early maternity clothes just were no longer fitting the ever growing tummy We will be continuing the regular photos but probably switch to weekly as her growth will be that much faster in these last few weeks I will post a new series of photos in the next little while From here on down is just camera talk If you re interested in me and what I m interested in you will probably want to keep reading If you only came for the photos you won t miss much if you stop reading right here On a different note it was 3 1 2 years ago that I bought my D700 The model was a few years old at that time and has been a fine camera It was replaced two years ago by its big brother the D800 which was actually in a higher category than the D700 was a hugely popular camera with image quality rivaling cameras 10 20 times its cost The announcement was made last week to replace it with some significant and some less significant improvements and upgrades I ve been saving my pennies balancing the budget and have decided to move forward with this new body the D810 Normally I m not an early adopter of technology I like the things to come out the problems be found and fixed then I m ready to buy in if it s the right technology for me Because this is not a complete overhaul but some additions and improvements I feel confident that it is not going to be something that needs the bugs worked out Some of the newer technology that had me pull back I learned has been implemented by other companies with smaller systems Nikon has simply scaled it up for this body It s not that there isn t room for problems but I feel that Nikon will look after their customers especially after some widespread problems with a previous body It took a bit of yelling by the customers but

  • Jay Scott Photography: Spring at Innovation Place
    nice fragrance in the air The fountain provides the steady soothing sound of flowing water and there is plenty of sun or shade whichever you prefer This time the group in the photo was enjoying the shade under the vibrant pink blossoms To the right out of frame is a nice patio with raised planters that are always full of some of the nicest flowers that bloom all summer long You can find the photos I made over there in past years right here here and here Innovation Place Saskatchewan Research Council HDR by Jay Scott on 500px I really wished I had more time to stay longer and keep shooting but I had another appointment to get to for the promotion of Challenging Reality It was interesting to see newly injured individuals remember some of the things I went through and to see firsthand which technologies I ve shared were of most interest to them It was very good to see their interest and to be affirmed that my work there is appreciative and helpful The writing splint that I use was available to them but they were incorrectly instructed on how to fit it on their hands by their occupational therapists I just don t see how it can be used any other way than it is supposed to be That s why when I made a photo that I did not include my hand The description I gave probably isn t even necessary But I helped accelerate the ability of two men to resume handwriting Combine that with the photos you ve seen here and it was a good day Posted by Jay at 10 18 AM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 bloom fruit gold hdr innovation place

    sunlight is coming from a much lower in the sky orb It s a new season though and the return to routine has its goodness as well Still the snow could hold off until November January for my tastes and ease of getting around The primary sump pump we just replaced is still running every five minutes I wonder how many years of drought we would need before it stops At any rate break out the indoor to do and project list as they will be needed soon enough Posted by Jay at 7 00 AM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2012 flora innovation place macro succulent transparent No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Challenging Reality The Portfolio All Photos on 500px Photo Sets Bigger Things Eclectic Fauna Flora Food Little Things People Scenery Skies Sports Latest 500px Uploads Loading Tweets by jayscottphoto Blog Archive 2014 41 October 2 September 7 August 10 July 7 June 8 May 2 April 1 March 1 February 2 January 1 2013 43 December 2 November 5 October 1 September 5 August 3 July 6 June 4

    flowers but I couldn t get close enough to these to get a good shot and it s the end of the season so in the interest of art I picked one to shoot The softness of these little red caterpillar like blooms was just like fur Reminded me of cotton candy I m pretty certain that these are perennials so I will make sure to get back to this spot next year Posted by Jay at 7 00 AM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2012 bloom flora innovation place lady bug macro perennial soft No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Challenging Reality The Portfolio All Photos on 500px Photo Sets Bigger Things Eclectic Fauna Flora Food Little Things People Scenery Skies Sports Latest 500px Uploads Loading Tweets by jayscottphoto Blog Archive 2014 41 October 2 September 7 August 10 July 7 June 8 May 2 April 1 March 1 February 2 January 1 2013 43 December 2 November 5 October 1 September 5 August 3 July 6 June 4 May 5 April 2 March 3 February 2 January 5 2012 93 December

    or maybe light under water I will post some photos from that session in a week or so and will point out those that were taken with the gold windows as a background I suppose the family photo session day was completely overcast so as much as those two girls sitting on the rocks pictured below would have been nice without the direct sunlight the effect would not have existed One of the first crunchy leaves of the upcoming autumn season Posted by Jay at 7 00 AM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels black and white foliage gold leaf scenery warm water No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Challenging Reality The Portfolio All Photos on 500px Photo Sets Bigger Things Eclectic Fauna Flora Food Little Things People Scenery Skies Sports Latest 500px Uploads Loading Tweets by jayscottphoto Blog Archive 2014 41 October 2 September 7 August 10 July 7 June 8 May 2 April 1 March 1 February 2 January 1 2013 43 December 2 November 5 October 1 September 5 August 3 July 6 June 4 May 5 April 2 March 3

    their brief lives and time in the shine only to be done for another year but thankfully replaced by other types that come into their prime shortly after Still I d love to see all of them all spring summer and early fall You might recognize this next photo It s one tree over and one hour earlier in the morning than the one I made a few years ago Amazing what three flashes and the little postprocessing can do to make quite a different photo This one was just a snapshot As I said before I love flowers but the blooms of trees are just so much more conveniently positioned for me to photograph from my wheelchair I seldom have the right angle to get what I m looking for from my chair and the hope of getting the focus exactly where I wanted simply by resting the camera on my feet is slim As you will see in my next post from a visit to Innovation Place the day before this visit the trees were quite cooperative for me In fact I was able to make my third highest rated photo on 500px It s already over there if you want to go take a look but I will be posting in a few days Apparently it was time to move on as I had an angry crow hovering over my head Where s that 12 gauge when you need it Posted by Jay at 10 21 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 bloom crab apple crow flora forestry farm saskatoon spring thunderchild tulips No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Challenging Reality The Portfolio All Photos on 500px Photo Sets

  • Jay Scott Photography: My Gratitude
    possible for us to serve as many people as we did that day To create portraits of that many people independently would have taken me numerous sessions and weeks of processing the resulting photos All that we did in one day was thanks to the team effort I made certain to mention this in my acceptance remarks And I m saying it now Thank you Help Portrait Saskatoon team Your work experience equipment and time are appreciated and essential to successful events If I had to guess I would say that my dear wife Angie has assisted me in some way with two thirds of my Challenging Reality photos It may be helping me to stylize something carry something to where I can more easily make a photo of it or extensively helping me to set up and take down whatever the subject might be Many of those photos I could make independently given adequate time Some of those would not be possible without her help I needed to acknowledge that as well as express my appreciation for the numerous times she has been my model and test subject I was also pleased to acknowledge the contributions of my friends Paul has been the largest contributor in helping me to name it being my model for multiple photos providing fair feedback which includes critique when needed and suggestions for material Heather has given me feedback and ideas and I have multiple ideas from Delynne All of those are on my list of subjects to shoot and as time permits they will be photographed and archived The brief description of Challenging Reality and the work it consists of was also included in the annual report that is distributed to every member of the CPA That coverage will help to sustain the project with new contributions new readers and new ideas for subject material However that was not the only publication I saw my face in yesterday After discussing my work with my contacts at the Shriners Hospital for Children in Chicago they had me write an article for them to be in their newsletter It was difficult to reduce what I wanted to say down to three paragraphs because whose story can be summed up that briefly However I felt like their revisions to squeeze it into the allotted space was beautifully worded and I am very appreciative of the coverage and the support from them I do not know how many hundreds of thousands of people receive their newsletter but I have noticed a significant increase of traffic on Challenging Reality I don t deny the pressure I feel to make certain my posts are both well photographed and as well written as ever Again what good is that work without people to benefit from it Perhaps the pressure is most added because my face is now visible and I am by far most accustomed to being the one making the photos not being in them One final thought In
