A fantastic morning spent with Christine at Paletta Mansion here in Burlington! It has ben a very long time since I picked up the camera to do portraits, but it was a ton of fun! Here are a few shots from our morning! Thanks to Christine for being a great model and friend!
As I progress further and further along my journey through photography, I find myself leaning more and more into the very creative and artistic side and way less into the technical side. Camera movement is one such piece of the artistic and creative vision. It is a very simple technique yet one I have done very seldom. For this I simply sat the camera on a solid surface, set a small aperture and as a result a longer shutter speed and then moved the camera horizontally as I was pressing the shutter button.
Yesterday I wandered to a few of the sites in Hamilton, Ontario that were part of the Doors Open 2018 event. This event happens every year and is great for those wanting to see the inside of buildings that are usually not accessible to the general public.
My favourite stop of the day was the old Cannon Knitting Mills on Mary Street. The original foundry building was built in 1854 and additions were made in 1910 and 1911-1922. There is certainly no lack of interesting images in this building!
