I know that it's been a long time since I posted anything on my blog, but things have been quite difficult for me since my mother Maria Josephine Jackson, passed away suddenly on June 9th, 2013, getting used to my new life in my first apartment. The photography you see here represents what I feel to be my most interesting/best photography taken since my mother's passing. It's organized by month and I hope that you enjoy it!
Since I began my digital photography journey, I’ve managed to see some of my work published in the Community Herald, the EDN Newsletter, Mentality magazine, and the Spiritspeak newsletter for Veith Street Gallery, but never in my life had I had an opportunity to be published in an e-book, even better, one written by Dr. Bara H. Loveland tentatively titled “Self Help”, which is to be published on no less than three websites: www.earthcommunityresearch.org, www.biochakra.com and www.colormedicine.com !
Not only will I have one of my pictures published in Chapter 3, but I will also have a little bio about me in Chapter 7 of her e-Book!
Publication has not happened yet, but as soon as her websites are up and running, I’ll publish the links in my "Published Photography" page for all to see!
To learn how this all came about, visit my "News and Upcoming Events" page on this site!
Haven't been blogging here much lately but wanted all of you who visit my site to know of some new albums I've added to "My Photography Journey 2010-" and a sneak peek at my newest photography on my home page. Today, I moved my "Spring Florals" album from my home page to "My Photography Journey 2010- and also an album called "Evening of the Super-Moon" featuring photos I took of the super-moon during that evening.
On my home page, I've added shots of a squirrel who we came to call Christine the squirrel who just seems to love the bird seed on the top bird feeder of our bird feeding station (which has three bird feeding stations) that I took just today.
I hope you enjoy them!
Hello photography buffs!
Yesterday, I watched an interesting video posted on Google entitled "10 things every serious photographer should know" which was the topic of a show featuring well-known photographer Scott Kelby called "The Grid". One of the top 10 things concerned having a lot of albums on your website as Mr. Kelby pointed out that on a website with many albums, he may only look at the ones that interest him. So, today I decided to divide my former "Photographic Journey" page into two sections: 2006-2010 and 2010 to present so that the viewer will not be overwhelmed by the albums I had on the one page and I hopefully might get more views!
If you'd like to see the video for yourself and learn the top 10 things every serious photographer should know, head over to:
I hope these changes add to the enjoyment of my website. Let me know what you think!
I've just posted an album of brand-new squirrel pictures on "My Photographic Journey" today. It's been a while since I've been able to take squirrel pictures , in fact these are the first I've taken since 2007. This is because recently we acquired a new bird feeder and ever since February 15th, a cute little squirrel has been feeding on the bird seed and I've been lucky enough, through patience and ingenuity, to capture the pics you see here.
Just wanted to let you know that I've uploaded some early shots of Racoons, Mallards, and Squirrels from 2006-2007 to broaden my portfolio of animals .
You can find the album at the bottom of "My Photographic Journey" page.
Hope you enjoy them!
A new album of fire abstracts is now up on my "Photographic Journey" page. These pics were taken with my new Nikon P500, which is the main camera I use in my photography now.
I hope these scenes bring you warmth during this cold and chilly winter!
Check it out and feel free to leave me a comment, I always welcome feedback!
Happy New Year Everyone!
With the new year upon us now and a lack of photographic opportunities due to the weather we've had so far, I decided to look back on my photos of the past year or so and pick out some "hidden gems" that went unposted this past year.
Among the hidden gems are Abstracts, flower macros, still life, and some sunset and landscapes taken during my 2nd cousin's birthday boat trip around the Halifax Harbour on on August 19th! (the first 3 pictures)
I hope you enjoy these and I'll post more as I come across them!
I hope you enjoy them!
After a bit of a haitus, I've added two new albums of pics taken around the Public Gardens and around our neck of the woods. Check them out in "My Photographic Journey" section, they're the ones on top!
As always feel free to comment on what you see, good or bad!
Recently, I was looking for something to feature on this website that had to do with the history of digital photography and came across this webpage from digital-photography-tips.net.
It gives a very thorough and interesting take on the very beginnings of digital photography and leads up to the development of digital photography as we know it today.
It's well worth a read! Check it out!
