IN FOCUS

    With camera in hand I am an explorer. Sometimes I travel to the far reaches of this great country we call Canada discovering new locales but often I explore for new possibilities in the comfort and proximity of my own backyard. It’s important for me to create and just as important for me to create without any thoughts as to how an image might be used in the future. This personal work is important for growth as an artist and it brings much contentment. No matter what the tools are (iPhone) or what the technique being used is (ICM Intentional Camera Movement), the resulting image can be as important and fulfilling as any other. If I don’t come away with an image, the experience of being out there was enough. As Freeman Patterson said many years ago, this is simply “Photography For The Joy Of It”.

    This coming Saturday, April 29, Manitoba Photo Events is sponsoring their fourth annual weekend extravaganza by hosting fellow photographer from Prince Edward Island DAVE BROSHA. Dave will present a one-day seminar about his work. Then, on Sunday, April 30th, he will conduct a workshop for a smaller group of participants.


    The Saturday event runs from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM with registration from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. The event takes place at the SAMUEL N. COHEN AUDITORIUM of the St. Boniface Hospital at 351 Taché Avenue in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

    A wonderful way to grow as a photographer is to be inspired by the work of fellow artists. No matter who you are, one should always be receptive to seeing the work of other artists. I have attended dozens of photo seminars over the years and they have proven invaluable to my growth as an artist. I plan on attending! Are you?

    Last Thursday evening, my young grand kids surprised me with a nice bouquet of flowers after the launch of my ONTARIO book. I wanted to photograph the flowers but thought I would do something a little different than simply documenting them. I used a slow shutter speed and panned the bouquet making dozens of variations on a theme. Here are three of those variations.

    'Polar Bears of Hudson Bay' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The polar bear, Ursus maritimus, is the largest land carnivore in the world. Also known as Nanook or ‘the white bear’, its native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle around the globe which includes the Arctic Ocean. Polar bears are marine mammals and they spend much of their time on the Arctic sea ice. Polar bears are excellent swimmers and are very quick runners on land too, reaching speeds of about fifty-five kilometers an hour.

    In Canada, polar bears may be seen from the safety of a tundra buggy in October and November on the Hudson Bay Lowlands near Churchill, Manitoba as they congregate in large numbers waiting for the waters of Hudson Bay to freeze. They feed primarily on ringed and bearded seals. Global climate change poses a substantial threat to polar bears and their habitat.

    'Dance Of The Northern Lights' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The northern lights or Aurora borealis, are amongst the most interesting celestial phenomena to witness. During large solar explosions and flares, great quantities of solar particles are emitted from the sun. When these plasma clouds finally reach the earth and collide with the atmospheric gases encountered from the earth’s atmosphere, the energy released from these collisions is emitted as light particles that we see as the northern lights.

    Generally, the displays of the northern lights are green, but sometimes the resulting light show is blue/violet or red. Auroras not only vary in color, but also in duration, intensity and shape, everything from an arc, band, veil, curtain and corona. Auroras are often seen near midnight but can occur anytime.
