the evening wound down the intensity of the performers pieces seemed to increase Not louder or faster but deeper Another fine guitar solo As in the past shows it concluded with a band who sounded great and really got the crowd wound up before the pizza party to follow I got some other reasonable photos but my lighting was set up for smaller groups of performers and the many microphone stand and music stands were obstructing great shots from my limited positioning It was a great evening and I look forward to the next one Posted by Jay at 9 00 AM 0 comments Email This BlogThis Share to

shoot another of the youth talent shows at Ebenezer Baptist Church Once again their talent and willingness to share that talent was great The evening started with a small acapella group who once they got over their initial giggles sounded great These two young women performed a few duets beautifully This young man performed a solo piece written by Jimmy Page lead guitarist from Led Zeppelin and sounded amazing I shot for awhile during the song but once I was sure I got what I wanted just sat and listened It was then that I heard the complete silence of the audience They had been cheering in support of the past performers but sat fully captivated during his playing until erupting a the end Yes it was a talent show and some were dressed a bit more formally but overall the casual nature of the participants and audience made the evening that much more inviting More in a few days Posted by Jay at 9 00 AM 0 comments Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest

they got devoured before I could get at them with my camera However when she got home one of our nephews toys a racebike with a magnetic rear wheel was stuck to one of the pie pans Trying to break out the imagination kids might have while playing I made a photo of the bike for fun Hopefully our nephews will like it Mag Bike by Jay Scott My recent arrival of neoprene to use as DIY Lens Coats was the

presented I decided to give watching The Grid another try I resumed watching on episode 55 link will open a new window and start playing the episode In this episode they discuss the current state of street photography and how people feel about being photographed on the street specifically women The conversation started when Scott Kelby and Jay Maisel had a confrontation while making a class in Paris Kelby a professional photographer married middle aged non threatening man and Maisel an 82 year old experienced street photographer both accompanied by a full production crew While crossing the street Scott snapped a photo of a woman crossing in the opposite direction who did not approve and proceeded to chew him out in French not accepting his upheld hands and apology following him across the street into traffic while continuing to express her disapproval For the record the camera crew were recording the portion for the class from across the street a distance away She likely did not see them So what are your views on being photographed in public Is it different as a man or woman being photographed or man or woman being the photographer The photographer s appearance clothing and demeanour seemed to have some weight to respondents answers How do you feel about the importance of those characteristics I ve been told that I might make a good street photographer as I m less threatening and less able to follow someone I don t agree with those who have said that Firstly I d either be aiming up their nose or at waist level or shooting creepily from a distance Just makes me uncomfortable thinking about it All responses were extremely guarded if it were people s children being photographed I must admit that I was a bit surprised by this I completely understand parents wanting to protect their children but their responses seem so incredibly guarded it almost sounded fearful of the world I know that I grew up in a small city in Saskatchewan and there were very few bad streets or neighborhoods that I was advised to avoid I never once thought about being careful about where I went or staying out too late because whether they were there or not I felt very few threats growing up where I did Even hearing the stories Angie has told me about growing up in her neighborhood and the cautions her parents gave to her out of loving concern surprised me We all know that every cell phone made within the last five years can take a decent photo Not just that they can take a decent photo but that they can take a decent quality photo that could fill a computer

    Scott This year was exceptional We made sure to get out and shoot them before three days of wind and rain claimed the nicest ones I say we because without Angie s help and breaking the wind with a reflector there would be no in focus shots as the gusts brought in the moisture of the next few days Thunderchild 2 by Jay Scott It is a shame how briefly beautiful spring blooms such as these last But I suppose that without them and their getting out of the way the fruit will not have time to grow ripen and be ready for the next season of photos Thunderchild 3 by Jay Scott We both hope that the yard continues to grow in beauty and fullness I m anticipating a new variety of vine and some lilies this year Always happy with Angie s choice of annuals and the opportunity to continue using this excellent new macro lens that is carrying its weight very well Thunderchild 1 by Jay Scott Posted by Jay at 10 23 AM 0 comments Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels dirt flora little things macro planter thunderchild tonka tree truck May 20 2012 Oh Right A solar eclipse Better do something with that Still want my portrait with a bolt of lightning behind me But this was much easier to time if rarer Posted by Jay at 10 30 PM 2 comments Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2012 clouds fedora jay portrait solar eclipse May 17 2012 It s All in the Details A short while back I completed the website for friends of ours who own and run Baraka Care Homes Ltd here in Saskatoon Nothing fancy about the site just the necessary information The last wrinkle was to get Google the host of the site to detect it and put it in their own directory Ironic we know Hopefully by linking to the site here in this post it will boost it to the top position when searched for It began around sixth or seventh and within a few days was second Only a care home aggregator is higher The frustrating part of the build was that they wanted their addresses kept off the site to minimize the number of drop in visitors but every other site they were listed on had their address Far beyond our control Just to clarify people are welcome to learn about the homes if they are considering it for themselves or their parents But Dwayne and Karen are not always at either of the two homes and dropping in when the staff may be busy is not ideal Not to mention those residences are people s homes and they don t necessarily want strangers dropping in and disrupting their very important routine A little notice ahead of time goes a long way Above is a test photo from the purchase made with

    tend to like things pretty spicy I was going for a dish that tastes very similar to a curry that I have had at Royal Thai in Saskatoon I have been craving it for some time and I think I got it as close as I could ever hope to get it on the first try and am to be perfectly honest quite proud of it My craving for that dish has been thoroughly satisfied with what I cooked this evening Posted by Jay at 10 30 PM 0 comments Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels chicken curry cutting board food knife lime mango recipe reflection table Apr 12 2012 Some Minor Changes Farewell Orchid by Jay Scott Okay here goes nothing I say that because I have installed a newer version of dictation software and we have no idea how accurate it will be until I get it trained to my voice over the next few months So if something I say makes no sense at all pretend it is a game of Mad Gab and slur their words together to try and figure out what I have said So far it has not made a single error in this paragraph so I am feeling confident about it On to the topic of this post When I decided to trust my photo hosting to 500px I felt like I had made a good choice Certain features that Flickr has it did not The community base was much smaller but Flickr is years old and 500px com was brand new Very recently 500px com instituted the one feature that I was missing most from Flickr and that was the ability to group photos into sets As for the community this website has exploded with people has an amazing rating system has excellent support and the commenters and contributors are top notch Previously I was able to group photos into different portfolio collections You ll still be able to see those by accessing The Portfolio but it will be thinned out to contain only the best images The problem with what I consider to be the best images is that a lot of people like the photos I feel indifferent about I do not want to limit the photos that are available for sale because of a portfolio collection that has been minimized to show what I consider only the best Now with the option of creating sets that is remedied because I can include in that set all of the photos of a specific category that I would be willing to sell as a product Because of this change there has been a slight adjustment to the navigation on the right hand bar of this site It is pretty self explanatory and should take little to no time for you to determine where to find the photos you are looking for As always if you find any dead links or errors I have
