Going on a photo walk...

and what a fun walk it was! I joined in on Scott Kilby's 2nd Annual Worldwide Photowalk, by taking part in the Courtenay, BC walk. Unfortunately there wasn't a Campbell River walk organized, but I'll make sure to organize one next year, if no one else does! The Courtenay walk had about 26 photographers of various levels (including a cute little 4 year old with one of those Fisher Price cameras - Caitlin would be so jealous!), and went from Simms Park Gazebo, up 5th Street, and around a few blocks before meeting back up at Zoloco (or whatever that coffee place was called!).
Here are some of the first shots - I have a ton so I'll spread them over a few blog entries so you won't get overloaded! ;)

I loved it... only in the middle of 26 other photographers would I not look out of place, lying down on the ground getting a picture up into the middle of the gazebo (at Simms Park)

I just loved the colour of this bridge.

More to come soon! Let me know what you think!

Fun at the Farmer's Market!

Every sunday from May until October, Campbell River holds the Pier Street market. It's a wonderful collection of food, crafts, flowers/plants, and goodies with over 45 booths each time. This summer it was actually chosen as one of the top ten Farmer's Markets in Canada! I love taking the girls there just to wander through, so here are shots from our latest Farmer's Market excursion!

I just love the bright colours and textures of these handmade fleeces and wools.

Crystals - So I was trying to get my reflection in at least one of the crystals here, but the woman selling them got all upset and shoo-ed me away! As I walked away "you're lucky I'm letting you keep that picture you already took!" Hmmm, I guess she doesn't know the photography laws around here. ;)

Pier Ice Cream - The best thing about going to the farmer's market - Ice cream at the pier!

Ready for Take Off

Ready for Take Off, originally uploaded by Kervin Photography.

I recently finished a Creative Digital Photography class that I was taking to remind me to think outside the box. The final assignment was to have a 16x20 mounted on foam core, taken of anything inside CFB Comox's Air Park. So here's the result!
The plane is a Douglas DC-3 "Dakota", previously used by Canadian military as well as Search and Rescue. The actual shot is a 5 exposure HDR blended in Photomatix pro, and finished off in Lightroom. I now have a 16x20 of this ready to hang on the wall somewhere in my house, now I just have to figure out where.... Good thing Jon likes planes!

I'm back!

It's been a year, but now that there is a Lightroom plugin that can upload directly to blogs, hopefully I'll be back to stay! Just testing out the plug in now. :)

Search and Win!
