Today I updated how a gift certificate can be purchased. It's just a matter of selecting a dollar amount and then paying by credit card. I will then mail the certificate in a day to two. You can see the updated page here.
I captured an image of my property looking straight down with my Phantom 2 Vision+ drone camera. I took it up to 140' but had to come down because it started to drizzle.
Here is a short video demonstrating a test flight that I done yesterday morning at sunrise. Until I get more experience I will be taking it slow and easy until I get the feel of what this camera can do. This camera is the Phantom 2 Vision+ from DJI.
I am seriously considering purchasing this drone camera. An aquaniance of mine brought the same camera to demo for me and the video can be seen below. https://vimeo.com/105501103
On May 6th, me and two other photographers headed to Hamilton and Stoney Creek to capture several of the waterfalls in the area. Shown here from left to right is Devil's Punch Bowl falls, Tiffany Falls and Sherman Falls. I think Sherman was the best of the day because of the amount of water running and being able to get within a few feet of the bottom of the falls before getting wet.
I just got confirmation as being accepted to photograph a wedding on April 26th. This is my first of the season. I am looking forward to doing more event or portrait sessions this year instead of weddings but either way is fine with me.
I added a new page called "Photographers Explained". This page has two sub-pages explaining why someone would hire a professional photographer and why photographers are so expensive. I found these two articles very informative. After reading it will give viewers a good idea how a professional photographer sets prices and how they operate. View this new page here.
I just completed a new service page called Photo Retouching. After buying and learning a few new software programs I now offer these new services, removing objects from a photo, changing the background in a photo, photo enhancing, colourize a black & white photo and portrait retouching. This new page can be viewed here.
After spending the past few days I finally have my website in order. I switched back to Photoshelter which I used for part of last year. I still like many of their features over my past host but both are very good and each have advantages over one another.
Specs are below.
- 2.4" display
- Full HD Resolution: 1920 x 1080; HD Resolution:1280 x 720
- Full HD vehicle recorder for high definition video recording
- Support Capacity: up to 32GB
- Wide angle lens lets you see video at 128 degrees without distortion
- Built-in high power LED for low light conditions
- Video file playback
- High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology with a high power LED reduces blurred images and produces brilliant and clear videos even when there is low light or strong and reflective lighting situations
- 5MP camera sensor that takes brilliant videos at 30 fps with H.264 compression for a smaller file size
- G-Sensor build in for emergency recording
Last Saturday (October 5) I shot my last wedding of the season. Even thought I have lots of editing to do the photos and video look really good. I am sure the bride & groom will be pleased (at least I hope they are). For the 2014 season I might decide on cutting back on weddings due to the amount of time involved. I might stick with just small weddings and for those looking for a photographer at short notice.
I signed up with Fluid Survey's again for the second time. I recently used Adobe Forms which I really liked but they lacked some of the advanced features that Fluid Survey offers. I'll continue with them for another year (that's my subscription time) and hopefully get lots of use with them on my website and also on my camera club website.
The past few days me and two other photographer friends took a trip to Owen Sound, Wiarton and South Hampton to take photos of different events and places. On our way up we stopped near Orangeville to capture this colourful sunrise.
