At the playground in October

It’s not every year that we get to enjoy warm double digit temperatures in the second half of October. While Kristin was at work and the kids and I were hanging at home, I decided that a walk to the park was a great way to enjoy the warm fall air (while we still can). It was also a great opportunity to get some photos of the kids outside before the snow flies. As we walked (and strolled) down the street towards the crosswalk, yellow leaves periodically fell on Madelyn from the trees above. Although I thought it was a perfect scene from the movies, she would yell “NO, Leaves!” And hurl them to the ground. Well, we made it to the park and here’s some photos of how much they enjoy the playground..

Hello Adobe

Well, the day I have wondered about for a long time has finally come: the day I migrate to Adobe Lightroom 5.

I must admit that since the release of Adobe Creative Cloud, the subscription based model for software has both intrigued me and kept me skeptical, but it was certainly the right time to shift my photo management and editing over to Adobe Lightroom 5. Here are a few things that helped me make my decision and some of the great resources that I’ve used to learn Lightroom 5.

1) you don’t have to subscribe to the entire Creative Cloud for $49.99/month. I went with Adobe’s Photography package which includes Lightroom and Photoshop CC for just $9.99/month!

2) Lightroom Mobile. Being able to access my Lightroom collections from my phone is beyond useful! It’s already come in handy as I have been able to sort through photos even if I just have 10-15 minutes free.

3) Photoshop. You get the full featured version of Photoshop as part of your $9.99/month – enough said.

4) The latest version. If you’re one who likes to upgrade when a new version of the software comes out, Creative Cloud makes sure you always have the latest up-to-date software and features.

5) Lightroom’s editing features are cutting edge! Very powerful radial filters, graduated filters, healing tool, and great brush control! It’s easier than ever for me to make sure my photos (and clients) look great!

6) Adobe has some great video tutorials to get started with Lightroom!

It has certainly been an adventure transitioning everything over to Lightroom, but I am excited about the rich pipeline of features and support Adobe has coming for photographers.

Mountains and Water

We were all pretty sad to leave Powell River; It was the most relaxing Kristin and I had done in a very long time! Thanks Sam and Robin for graciously hosting us and taking us to the beach 5 times in 4 days!!

During one of the two ferry rides back to Vancouver I decided to go up on deck and grab a few shots if the beautiful mountains as they crashed down into the Pacific Ocean. The BC Landscape never ceases to amaze me!

Sunset at the Richmond Dyke

First off, huge thanks to my friend Julio for inviting me out to the Richmond dyke to take some photos of the sunset. Located right across the water from the Vancouver International Airport, watching planes take off and land against this creamy sky backdrop was spectacular. Armed with the 5D Mark II, 60D, and my GoPro Hero3+ I came out with some sweet time lapse video! Although I did focus primarily on timelapse, I managed to snap a few photos as well.

(Stay tuned for the  time-lapse videos to come!)
