  • Jay Scott Photography: The Beautiful Brief Lilies
    she still isn t aware of how far it sticks out or so she tells me and we realize that the time is coming very soon Today we both agreed that the length of time a woman is pregnant is just about right Too much shorter and it wouldn t be enough time to let it sink in and prepare too much longer and the discomfort and growing anxiousness would be difficult Orange Backyard Lilies by Jay Scott on 500px At this moment my biggest concern revolves around a factor I cannot control but believe that with the proper assertiveness I should be able to exercise some degree of influence That concern is with my care Being on a regular schedule like I am is best for my health and pushing the limits has significant negative consequences Add to that a Home Care office that I have a rapidly diminishing faith in and you can see the source of my concern I do have faith in God and hope that he will have his hands on the perfect timing of everything including my routine so that I have the pleasure of witnessing our child s birth without pushing my well being beyond what is healthy It would not be the first time that I counted on him to influence those at the Home Care who have the ability to make my life easier I will trust Angie s judgment far more than my own as I m just a casual observer but I wonder if today s photo at 39 weeks isn t the last of this series I suppose we will see soon enough Posted by Jay at 10 10 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 39 weeks baby back

  • Jay Scott Photography: She's Sure Growing
    in full speed and lick furiously She s not the most in tune with how we are feeling but she only ever means well Thankfully even when she s excited she seems to err on the side of caution with Fiona I have no doubt that as Fiona grows especially as food begins hitting the floor that Kiwi will be sticking right by her side Kiwi and Fiona by Jay Scott on 500px Finally are a few photos from a series that we did in her new bouncy chair a gift from three of my wonderful caregivers from Home Care The chair has been a lifesaver when we ve been eating and it gives her an opportunity to be near us active with her ever kicking legs and give her the opportunity to sit up a bit straighter independently and soothe herself by her own movements More than that it felt good to pull out almost all of my flashes to really construct an elaborate photo from seven light sources Candid snapshots are great but I was itching to get back to a thoroughly constructed photo with much complexity for the practice to make sure I could still do it but also for the unique look that you can only get from such a mixture Just for clarity in the chronology of the photos the second photo with both Kiwi and Fiona is the most recent as of this post The three below here were from approximately one week earlier Day 16 Explorative by Jay Scott on 500px Day 16 Thoughtful by Jay Scott on 500px Day 16 Bubbly by Jay Scott on 500px Posted by Jay at 9 18 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels baby bouncy chair fauna fiona kiwi

  • Jay Scott Photography: The Prequel is Complete
    quickly it has come and gone Granted there have been a lot of days with scheduled appointments and things to do and when you are timing an outing around a baby s schedule it may not take longer to complete but it may need to be hurried up to leave sooner or postponed to leave a bit later Thankfully few things trump just trying to live life with the occasional event or outing but I must admit that it felt really good to make a photo for my project the other day just feel a little bit like the routine we knew as normal a few weeks ago The prequel I spoke of in the title of this post is the series of photos we did throughout Angie s pregnancy You ve seen most of them but this is the complete version including a final shot of mother and child Each individual photo can be clicked on to see in a much higher resolution so that you can enjoy the time effort and quality I attempted to put into each image I think I will take the opportunity to go to bed early tonight to get as much good sleep as possible I will have some more interesting unique photos for you in a few days Posted by Jay at 9 31 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2014 angie baby fiona portrait pregnancy series 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 Two Lil Punkins Oh Autumn

  • Jay Scott Photography: Kiwi's Haircut, Summer Disappearing and Our New Addition Getting Closer
    be my turn along with a trip for physiotherapy The thing is this baby could take up to a month to arrive which would actually be quite a bit of time in the scheme of things Wow Every time I say those words it seems a bit surreal I have moments of complete acceptance of all of the good things about come our way along with the uncertainty of the changes Then I have moments like right now when I can t quite believe it yet Angie s friend was commenting on thinking about taking their new son for swimming lessons in the fall but said that maybe she would wait until spring and they could do it together That was a big reality check for Angie when she thought we re going to have a baby It s not just about the pregnancy It s about the rest of our lives Today in fact as I was making my way down the street to make a photo for Challenging Reality I was thinking how helpful it would ve been to have had a little helper for either a push or to carry a piece of gear I know that won t be for at least a few years but I look forward to the opportunity to teach what I know and have been taught as well as reap the benefits of a little helper I m sure that our current little helper pictured above might have a few jealousy issues But there s almost no reason she can t be involved in all of our activities There will be plenty of attention for her and plenty of delicious droppings of food from little hands learning their dexterity That won t be for a little while but it will probably

  • Jay Scott Photography: One New Baby is Here
    CD RW containing a copy of Return to Wolfenstein How ironic that I m watching Nazi Mega Weapons on Netflix while I work on this For the record the dynamic range on this body is superb However I was going for dramatic to make the colours pop so I blackened the blacks in post Love that ISO 64 when working close for macro photos with speedlights AF is blazing fast everything just feels so good in hand Yes a lot of money but I ve shot 19 photos with it and feel this good about the decision Posted by Jay at 12 09 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels black cd colourful d810 elastic loom macro rainbow reflection 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 Kiwi s Haircut Summer Disappearing and Our New Ad Strawberry Rhubarb Bars One New Baby is Here On

  • Jay Scott Photography: On Failures and MB-D10 Clone Troubleshooting
    play but this does not affect one s ability to navigate or adjust your AF point The markings such as the on off indicator switch show signs of rubbing off already after about three months or 3500 handheld frames Some inexplicable power issues such as the battery draining over a short amount of time even with the camera switched off seem to be better which I will elaborate on in a moment The power issues I encountered may or may not have been related to the grip itself Initially I found that the grip was draining both the battery in the grip and in the body of the camera over a period of approximately 3 to 4 days Even with diligently turning off the switch on the battery grip this switch should only control the ability of the controls on the grip to function it should have nothing to do with the power usage of the camera it did not seem to make a difference What did seem to help was making certain the grip was attached to the camera body as snugly as possible I m not talking about stripping the threads of the tripod mount but a secure fit ensuring full contact of all pins and connectors between the grip and the body seemed to help This may or may not have been the cause of the battery drain As with most lithium ion batteries there is a breaking in time Now that I have run the two new DSTE batteries that I ordered through a number of full drain and full charge cycles they are doing very well one performing better than the second one This may have been the cause of the battery drain more than the grip itself Cycle your batteries properly when you first get them and you should be able to eliminate one factor of this if it arises for you The second issue that I had with the grip was greatly concerning because I was afraid it was going to affect or damage the camera Using my initial two year old secondary battery EN EL3e which was also made by a third party manufacturer I would make an exposure with a shutter speed slower than 1 60 of a second and the mirror would not flip down I would receive an error message and no exposure would be recorded to the card I was able to reset the camera simply by pressing the shutter button again but I would need to power cycle the body in order to return to shooting After power cycling it would reset to approximately f 4 0 1 160 ISO 200 which is not uncommon for me to be at and it may have been the setting the last successful frame was made with The initial purpose of the longer shutter speed was for a photo which included four flashes and some electroluminescent wire for a thirty second light painting using rear curtain flash sync When this

  • Jay Scott Photography: Zoo 2014 - 7
    our other plants that are a bit younger are always a little bit behind the average That s fine with me because we get to enjoy them just a little bit longer in our yard and any day now the first of our lilies will open I look forward to photographing the red and the tiger lilies One of the main purposes of this earlier trip to the zoo was to scout for what was our upcoming photo session I snuck into some back areas of the zoo that are seldom visited by patrons because of the unexciting exhibits back there when I caught some movement of the corner my eye My first thought was Wait a minute That animal s not in a cage It was just a rabbit but a playful one which let me shoot for five minutes and came within two feet of me It was foraging in one of the areas I had great hopes for for our session Unfortunately a week of rain turned that beautiful green strip you see in the bottom photo to a swamp Now as a significant storm rolled through Saskatoon a few hours ago a second wave is hitting us I hope that the tennis ball sized hail seen in Alberta and parts of western Saskatchewan stay away from us So far it s just been rain and a little bit of wind but I ve heard about places between here and Kindersley that have had windows destroyed and crops wiped out The Southeast part of the province already took enough of a beating with excessive water this spring and I really hope that we are able to make it through this summer without damage Posted by Jay at 10 47 PM Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share
