I live in Ontario, Canada and love making photographs. I continue learning how to use my DSLR. With almost 15 000 photos on this camera, I still have to have lots to learn.

I enjoy looking at photos on PB and learning from others on the site.

With each photograph I make, I learn and become one step closer to becoming a photographer as I learn about the camera, composition and my own eye for what pleases me in a photo.

I've completed a Project 365. My policy for the 365 was to change nothing about the photos except the lighting (levels, brightness, contrast, shadows and highlights). Everything else was as it was seen by the camera.

Since the 365, I made a photo each day, to 1000 days but was a bit more free about cropping and editing, though I tried to keep it minimal. I am now posting less often.

Now, I make photographs for the joy of making photographs with no rules and no commitments.

My kit includes:
Camera: Olympus E-3, Lenses: ZD 12-60mm, ZD 70-300mm super zoom-telephoto, Flash: FL-50R (off camera capable) Tripod: Manfrotto 055XPROB, Olympus 50mm f2.0 Macro 1:2 lens
Apple-Macintosh MacBook Pro

Marvelous Dar. I like the demonstration of different setting and the sharpness/softness of the waterfalls.
Thanks so much!

Zombie Walk?
Naaa, the makeup would mess up the camera ;)

I'm going though, to shoot, not take part.

The background of black adds so much to the portrait to make it mysterious and wonder what is going on with the expression. Great shot Marjorie.
Thanks Dave :)

Oh. What an interesting, mood invoking portrait. It is, so, very well done, however, I like your smiling photos much better as they are happy.
Thank you so much Dave for this wonderful comment. I'm happy to know what you think of this image. My intention was to touch a nerve, because life isn't all fun and smiles. We are people filled with emotions and all emotions deserve recognition. But obviously I understand you prefer to see me smiling :)) Just so you know, I was laughing a lot while doing this shoot, because my two boys were allowed to spray water on the window with their water pistols and in the fun of games they got pretty soaking wet themselves also ;)

I like the building in #7, near Union Station, I'm guessing. I enjoy seeing the building in #6 but, while driving, have never stopped to actually "see" it. Thanks.
Those of both the Gooderham Building (otherwise known as the flatiron building) in the St. Lawrence Market area, just east of Union Station. I bet it sounds like I know what I'm talking about, huh? lol In fact I didn't realize that the mural was on the back of the flatiron building.. I guess I got distracted by my location
