Where is my home?

It was cold. I asked him, won't you get cold sleeping outside? The man showed me a hair dryer hidden in his sleeve. I asked why don't you go to shelter. He said, cause all people there are drunk and sick. It smells like feet and they steal from you. There was one thing I could read in his eyes and that thing was: "Where is my home?".

Gigantic Save!

Sport photography is fun. Especially in an aggressive hockey game. It was a game between U of Alberta and U of Regina and it was quite aggressive. The U of A goalie was awesome as always and he saved this shot too. Unbelievable eh? It took me a long time to get used to the way the zoom ring works on the lens I got from the paper. One day I would love to go to a game and capture the moments of the people watching the game.

Never fails, frame your photo and while keeping the photo framed, look out for the action. Sometimes I do not follow the action with camera, I just wait and listen and listen and wait and wait for the sound and then ... click click click. Maybe some photographers can follow the puck while it is traveling at 60mph. I do that sometimes too, but it is hard to get the good photo while everything is going crazy. So sit and wait.

August: Osage County

This week was a photo call for August: Osage County in Citadel Theater in Edmonton. I went there and it was quite interesting. They played a scene 3 times for the people from TV channels and then asked me if you are interested in some parts of the scene. I chose two and I shoot both. Following photos are from that photo shoot. I was also impressed by the huge decoration. It was a completely functional three story decoration. I took photos of the decoration but honestly I was a little bit lazy to put them here. Maybe later I might do that.
