  • Jay Scott Photography: Help-Portrait Saskatoon 2013
    of fun Look at those cute little faces It took a few tries to get good expressions and of course her little boy would have nothing to do with sitting still But each time they plopped him down in the chair with some excitement we got about two frames before he was off and running again It was a lot of fun and we were glad that we could squeeze her in at the very last minute to get her some family photos made in time for Christmas Unfortunately for Laura I was getting pretty tired by the end of the day I hadn t slept much the night before and my people skills were slipping away as quickly as my alertness We also came into her session not knowing what she wanted so we started experimenting the slides and seeing what she liked After the first round I stepped aside and let others work with her Eric is an amazing guy when it comes to working with people and I know there is plenty I could learn from observing him making photos and interacting I had to save the best for last You probably recognize the first photo Lawrence I did post it a few days ago but wanted to share it again so that all photos were in the same place Lawrence came in knowing what he was wanting with the guitar and some killer sunglasses faux hawk at the ready after being touched up by our stylists I had been planning his photo in my mind for weeks because ever since I met him I knew one day I wanted to make a portrait of him I certainly hope these are not the last ones We toned down the lighting and attempted to fill the background with fog from a handheld fog machine of mine Unfortunately it just does not have the output needed for that so we made it useful to add a little bit of character to the intensity of this playing He was pretty pumped about the results but then so were we There is no question that without the team pictured below the day could not have been anywhere near the success it was Many hands make a lot of things possible very quickly A slight tweak to the light a small adjustment there or a major change in the overall set up would ve taken me hours to complete It was great to have multiple sets of hands to help me make a day I had been excited about for so long possible Without the effective work of our stylists people would not have looked at their very best the way only a skilled aesthetician can make a person look We greatly appreciate their efforts and how they helped our clients to feel their very best before getting in front of the camera Thanks to everyone who made our first Help Portrait event in Saskatoon a success I think we will need

  • Jay Scott Photography: Dock Walk
    by the birds I find it so interesting that it wasn t until a few years ago that I realized thanks to our tomato plants that the ugly dried up parts of the bottom of the berry were what once was the blossom which grew into the berry We probably learned that in elementary school but the things a person does not think about on a daily basis are sometimes the simplest One more shot from the top One of the things that frustrates me the most on the days like this when my intention is to get some exercise is that the pain I feel is not in my muscles Most the time it is the seams in my gloves where the thumb is sewn to the main body that digs in to my toneless webbing between my thumb and index finger After a number of hard pushes up a steep hill it feels like someone is jamming a hot fork in there The dust and grime on my gloves and push rims prevent me from moving forward using a different group of muscles because there is a greater risk of my hands slipping off losing my forward momentum and even hurting myself Not the strength training I was hoping for on a nice day like this However I did take the time to stop in at Museo before I left Enjoy a top notch coffee have a look at the photos on my camera read a few articles and then head home The rainy forecast has eased from what they were originally calling for so maybe it will miss us all together Posted by Jay at 10 30 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 flora macro panoramic saskatoon scenery

    experience and meticulous tweaking to get it looking exactly as I wanted Forestry Farm Thunderchild Crab Apple 1 by Jay Scott on 500px The photo below this was made no more than 10 meters away from the first photo just chosen because of the delicate spring shade of green nearby and the hint of pink that entered the frame near the end from a similar deeper coloured tree Abstract Long Exposure 1 by Jay Scott on 500px I know that the comment section is pretty quiet in this space but I know you are out there reading I d love to know what you think of this abstract style It s just my first attempt but it wasn t unenjoyable We will see where my experimentation goes Posted by Jay at 8 51 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 abstract crab apple eclectic flora forestry farm garden long exposure oof painterly rose saskatoon spring thunderchild zoo 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

  • Jay Scott Photography: Zoo 2014 - 4
    interested in the farm animals I suppose it s no different than when I encountered a rabbit in my last visit I looked over and saw an animal not in a cage and wasn t sure what I was seeing Then they proceeded to hop no more than 4 feet away from me I suppose the cages take away the fascination even more than a young child watching their mother feed a simple chicken I m always cautious when photographing people and their children There are a lot of people who are opposed to having their photo taken and I understand and respect that However these people were really friendly and more concerned that they were blocking my way than anything I whispered back but they were not and asked if I could take a picture Of course they said yes The caged animals will be there for a long time It s the unique moments like this that I love to sit and enjoy especially with our own little one on their way Maybe I ll be feeding the chickens to the enjoyment of our child in a year or less It was getting pretty hot and just as I was leaving the zoo I spotted a peacock hiding under the bushes getting some shade It was a very nice and peaceful way to end that visit to the zoo Both arriving and leaving I was just a few feet away from a nice peacock Posted by Jay at 7 00 AM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 baby bear duck eagle forestry farm fox grizzly peacock pond saskatoon take off zoo No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Challenging Reality The Portfolio

    are startling though This little guy was born less than a week ago and was just the cutest little thing galloping across the field to get to its mother Of course I missed that shot because I think I may have spooked him and caused him to run across as I approached That s why I didn t have my camera up and ready There will be more to come in a few days from this trip and as of the writing of this I ve had two more excellent photo walks with results to post They will be coming in the next little while as time to work on them and write posts comes Posted by Jay at 10 15 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 fauna forestry farm fox horse lynx peacock zoo 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

  • Jay Scott Photography: Red Curry with Blue Rice
    for fear of burning my mouth I tire of nice photos so despite an overhead soft box to believably imitate to candle I added a blue touch to the rice for an element of surrealism It was also nice to have a good time to incorporate the candle holder made by my grandfather s skilled hands It deserves a detail shot of its own His choices of wood glued together in such a way to make the pattern it does has always impressed me It in itself is art Posted by Jay at 10 41 AM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels bamboo bell pepper blue broccoli candle curry cylinder food grandfather onion red rice spicy 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 Red Curry with Blue Rice Calgary Beet Borscht and Baguette April 1 March 1 February 2 January

  • Jay Scott Photography: Calgary, Beet Borscht and Baguette
    phone shots that precede the star photo of this post at the end That afternoon Sunday we went downtown to check things out In past visits to Calgary we avoided downtown because we were assuming that the parking would be too expensive and the driving more intimidating than the benefit of going downtown After Vancouver and Seattle last year downtown Calgary was completely unintimidating to drive in We spent the afternoon at the Core shopping center which cost us a whole two dollars for parking as Calgary has a very affordable and liberal parking policy on weekends At the top of The Core shopping center are the Devonian Gardens It was a very nice place to spend some time enjoying plants and scenery since spring has been so late in coming to this part of the world The only problem was getting up there with only one elevator for the entire shopping center which was always packed like a can of sardines The multiple escalators seem to elude most people who could ve used them I was hoping to have the opportunity to make a few photos of the gardens while we were there so I looked up their photography policies before we left It sounded like they were reasonably casual but that anybody wanting to do anything serious need to reserve and pay for the time there As such there was a very large men s choir having a photo session after which they graced us with their talents before dispersing It certainly added to the lovely atmosphere of the gardens However I did not bring my camera because the weather looked lousy and we were not planning to go to the zoo so I was not going to haul it with me just to photograph a few flowers which would ve only end up being snapshots as seen above The light was really nice in the gardens and the shiny metal tables made for beautiful fill light reflectors which meant Angie had to pose for me more than a few times After we had seen enough of the gardens and the shopping center we went downstairs and out onto 8th Avenue also known as Stephen Avenue This street is pedestrian only between certain hours of the day It was nice to be able to stroll down the middle of the street see the unique architecture and far more interesting businesses than your typical chain stores that every single mall in North America seems to have It was almost eerily quiet to see so few people downtown in a city of over 1 million but it certainly was nice to have all the space to ourselves We made our way down to the Olympic Plaza then back to the shopping center and off to supper at a French Indian fusion restaurant It was called Saffron Mantra had only been open a few months and was run by some really nice people I hope they do well and that the
