A photo-blog of our trip to Victoria, B.C.

Posted by on Friday, 22 February, 2013

We had opportunity last week to head up to Vancouver Island, B.C. for a brief get-away. We took the week off, drove up to Port Angeles on Monday, caught the early morning ferry to the island on Tuesday, and returned on the late ferry Friday afternoon; these are some of the shots from Monday evening to Friday around 5pm. Thankfully we had a long weekend to rest up from vacation… I always forget how tiring travel can be.

You’ll note some apparent duplicate shots. I’ve left these in as they show some differences in angle, exposure, cropping, and processing settings which make them different enough that I’ve not yet decided which ones will make it into my portfolio…. if you think any of these should be added to my portfolio/print sales site, please let me know as I value any and all feedback!

Photo editing

Posted by on Tuesday, 2 October, 2012

Since launching WaywardCelt Photography I’ve dug into some of my archives and begun playing a bit more with heavier photo-editing. Generally I like to keep my photography simple and get as close to a final product directly from the camera as I can. Most images for sale on my site have minor light level adjustments at most. Some have no editing at all. But, while I was building my site and selecting the images to host, I realized I have quite a bit of photos that were okay in composition, but were lacking¬†other bits that would make them exceptional . So I figured why not play around and see if I could salvage any.

To that end, here’s a smattering of images which have all been edited more heavily than simple level adjusts. While some may still appear only minimally modified, others are obviously worked to a point of over-processing. You may have seen some of these pop up on my WaywardCelt Photography Facebook page already, the rest will likely show up over there during the course of the next two weeks; however none of these are yet added to my portfolio site. So consider this blog and my Facebook page as a bit of test beds for the photos; only the best of which will make it to my portfolio site:

 

WaywardCelt Photography: The official launch

Posted by on Thursday, 13 September, 2012

I am quite pleased to announce the public launch of:

Photo.WaywardCelt.com

This new site is my outlet for selling unmounted prints, framed prints, gallery wraps, a multitude of other physical product options, as well as downloads for both personal and commercial use.

I consider this a rather large milestone, as it not only achieves a goal I had set for myself at the beginning of the year, but also has helped my overcome what I refer to as debilitating self-doubt. In putting my work online on my social channels I’d already broken through one aspect, but selling prints is a whole other animal that scared me: all of a sudden, other people’s judgements and views become much more important to me. But, if I risk nothing I gain nothing, and the time had come to take that next step.

So, I hope you enjoy browsing my portfolio, and if you’re struck with an image, and so inclined, please don’t hesitate to find a frame you like and purchase a print for your own walls; I consider that the most flattering and deepest honour of which I could possibly think. Of course, you can also¬†“Like” me on Facebook to get periodic updates on new images, new products, and coupons too!
