DAY ONE
Friday, January 22, 2016

Today is the beginning of my 365 day photography challenge. I will (try) to take at least one photo a day for an entire year.

On my way home from work I was amazed by how beautiful the sky was, so I did some research when I got home and set out to take some photos. They didn't turn out too well, I really need a tripod attachment (I lost mine, so there is nothing that keeps my camera anchored to the tripod).

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens, with my lens at 55mm, using ISO100, aperture f5.0 and a shutter speed of 8.0 seconds.

DAY TWO
Saturday, January 23, 2016

Since I was so excited to start this 365 day challenge, I took Christopher to the Ecomuseum with me so that I could take some photos. I just loved this one! This little guy looks so proud of himself, and he's got beautiful feathers.

This photo was shot using my Canon 55-250mm lens with my lens at 200mm using ISO400, aperture f5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/30 seconds.

DAY THREE
Sunday, January 24, 2016

Since I took some photography courses at Dawson College while I was in the Graphic Design program, I know the basics in manual photography. But I really want to get good (or awesome, even) at Night and Low-light Photography.

I am so intrigued by how beautiful this type of photography can be, and since it gets dark so early in the winter, why not experiment now! Not to mention how interesting some of the winter skies can be.

Here is my second attempt at Night Photography, I took a photo of the moon. Again, it is a bit blurry so I really need to get the tripod attachment.

This photo was shot using my Canon 55-250mm lens with my lens at 250mm, using ISO100, aperture f5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/60 seconds.

DAY FOUR
Monday, January 25, 2016

Today, after work I picked up my camera (my new birthday present from Christopher) a Canon Rebel EOS 700D, and walked up the street to the summer driving range. It is the closest open space near our condo that isn't all lit up, which is perfect.

There was still a bit of daylight when I got there, so I played around with macro photography and changing the settings on the camera (ISO, Aperture, etc.).

I edited it in photoshop, just to convert it to black and white.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, using ISO400, aperture f5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/8 seconds.

DAY FIVE
Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Today started off with beautiful snowflakes when I was driving to work, which then turned to rain all afternoon.

At lunchtime, I decided to go for a little drive to find something to inspire me. I was driving through a wooded area when I saw a beautiful running creek, unfortunately, there was nowhere to park my car safely, so I continued on another kilometer or so before I saw these frozen branches. I pulled my car safely to the side of the road and got out to take a few photographs.

This one is my favourite, mostly because of the linear lines, the layered shapes and how sharp the ice on the trees came out.

This photo was shot using my Canon 55-250mm lens using ISO100, aperture f5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/20 seconds.

DAY SIX
Wednesday, January 27, 2016

A beautiful, mild winter day started with sunshine and ended with a beautiful sunset.

On my way home, while the sunset shone right into my eyes (not ideal driving conditions), I thought of where I could stop to take a photograph of the beautiful amber sky. Finally I decided on stopping in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue at this little park by the water. I used to bike by this park in the summertime and I remembered it has a small cement pier, which would be (and was) the perfect spot.

I took a few different photos, using my Canon 18-55mm lens and then switched to my 50mm lens, set to infinity. The image posted was taken using the 50mm lens at ISO100, Aperture at f5.6 and shutter speed at 1/125 seconds.

Still need a tripod to get a really sharp photo, but this came out no to shabby.

DAY SEVEN
Thursday, January 28, 2016

A cloudy and snowy day is perfect for photos of old dried flowers with tiny snowflakes decorating them.

I took some photos on my lunch break today on a path I usually walk on during the summer (it's been too icy to walk there lately).

I wasn't sure of what I would photograph, so I just took my time to look around at the scenery. After taking a bunch on macro shots and a few landscape shots, I made my way back to work. I couldn't wait to come home to take a look at them.

So far, up until this point, I haven't had any trouble choosing my favourite photo, but tonight I needed some input from Christopher. I had a few that came out really well.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm at 44mm, ISO100, Aperture at f6.3 and shutter speed at 1/100 second.

DAY EIGHT
Friday, January 29, 2016

Today I had to bring my car to the garage so I got the day off at work. Before dropping the car off, I drove Christopher to work. On my way home, as I was crossing the bridge, I noticed how much fog there was on the water and realised I needed to stop somewhere to take a photograph (obviously not on the highway).

I got off the highway on to a little country road near the water and parked my car on the side of the road. I took some photographs down on that street and then made my way to the bridge's walking path (to get from Île Perrot to Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue). I took a few more photos from up there. They all came out awesome and looked so mystical, so I added a second photo this time. Also added it to the slideshow at the top of the page.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm at 39mm, ISO100, Aperture at f22 and shutter speed at 1/40 seconds.

(Photo below). This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm at 55mm, ISO100, Aperture at f22 and shutter speed at 1/40 seconds, this photo was enhanced in black and white.

DAY NINE
Saturday, January 30, 2016

I had a hard time getting inspired today. The weather wasn't very nice and all the beautiful snow was melting.

I decided to go for a small hike in the forest to get some inspiration. So, here it is!

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm at 18mm, ISO100, Aperture at f4.5 and shutter speed at 1/10 seconds.

DAY TEN
Sunday, January 31, 2016

This morning I was looking for some inspiration in photography magazines (popular photography). Since I do some volunteer videography on Sundays for the Becket Players, I needed to make sure I took photographs this morning before rehearsal started.

I decided to go to Mont Rigaud (not the ski hill, but the hiking trail side) to take some photos, since it was so mild out. Chirstopher came with me so we made an outing out of it.

Here is the photo we chose as my best shot. I was trying to work on my landscape photography since I had done some research on how to set your camera up to take a great shot. This one came out pretty nice, if I do say so myself!

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm at 39mm, ISO100, Aperture at f22 and shutter speed at 1/15 seconds.

DAY ELEVEN
Monday, February 1, 2016

Today started out really wet and rainy, so when I got in the car this morning and saw the street light through my rain dropped window, I pulled out my camera and took a couple shots.

I love how it looks so abstract and the colors are both warm and cool. What do you guys think?

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm at 55mm, ISO100, Aperture at f5.6 and shutter speed at 1/10 seconds.

DAY TWELVE
Tuesday, February 2, 2016

I did some research last night on popular places near my house, unfortunately (or fortunately), I didn't make it in time, so I ended up stopping at the end of the road (which seemed to go on forever). It turned out that there was a pretty cool view of downtown from here, you can see Oratory on a clearer day.

I know I've said this already, more than once, but I can't wait to get my quick release adapter for my tripod! It will make these photo's so much sharper.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm at 28mm, ISO100, Aperture at f8.0 and shutter speed at 1/4 seconds.

DAY THIRTEEN
Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Today started off with nice snow, changed to freezing rain, then to rain and ended with a beautiful sunset. I guess I can't complain, we've been spoiled with good weather this winter.

At lunch time today, I went to Cap Saint-Jacques in Pierrefonds (I think?). Everything looks so magical when it's covered in ice. I took a bunch of different photos, but this one is my favourite. The texture of the ice is amazing!

On my way home I saw how dramatic the sunset was, so I decided to stop in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue and take a few photographs (see below).

This first photo (close-up of a frozen twig) was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 30mm, ISO100, Aperture at f5.6 and shutter speed at 1/40 seconds.

This second photo (sunset on the water) was shot using my Canon 50mm lens at 50mm, ISO100, Aperture at f22 and shutter speed at 0.8 seconds.

DAY FOURTEEN
Thursday, February 4, 2016

Today was crazy busy at work, so I figured I would have to take a photo when I got home.

On my way home, I noticed the sun was still up – ever so slightly– so I stopped at the water (again, I know) to take a photo. The longer I stayed, the more amazing the sunset got. The colours went from yellow to amber to pink to this amazing mix of colours! Take a look.

This photo was shot using my Canon 50mm lens at 50mm, ISO100, Aperture at f22 and shutter speed at 0.5 seconds.

DAY FIFTEEN
Friday, February 5, 2016

Today I was thinking about my Grandma, so I decided that I would make my photo today
about her.

Since my Grandma loved tea, I set up a set with her tea cups and a book of hers, called Modern British Poetry. I just love how delicate and beautiful my Grandma's tea cups are, it makes you feel like royalty when drinking from them.

This photo was shot using my Canon 50mm lens at 50mm, ISO100, Aperture at f2.5 and shutter speed at 1/10 seconds.

DAY SIXTEEN
Saturday , February 6, 2016

What a beautiful winter day.It finally looks like a Canadian winter! I definitely wanted to capture the beautiful fresh snow when I went outside to take photographs today.

I decided I would go to a new trail I saw down the street from our condo. It was beautiful in there, like an enchanted forest. There was a rocky cliff to my left and a creek to my right. Tall pine trees shaded the path.

The photo that I chose for today was a close-up of the fresh snowflakes on this interesting dried spider-like flower. Take a look!

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, ISO100, Aperture at f5.6 and shutter speed at 1/50 seconds.

DAY SEVENTEEN
Sunday , February 7, 2016

Today was Chris's niece's birthday party. So the photo today is of some of the cool glow-in-the-dark art, since a lot of the photos of the birthday girl came out grainy because of the low-light.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, ISO6400, Aperture at f5.6 and shutter speed at 1/15 seconds.

DAY EIGHTEEN
Monday , February 8, 2016

Today was a busy day and since I still haven't received my tripod yet, I decided to take some photos indoors. Since I usually take nature shots, it took me a little while to try to figure out what to shoot.

Finally I decided to take this photo. Take a look.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 35mm, ISO6400, Aperture at f4.5 and shutter speed at 0.4 seconds.

DAY NINETEEN
Tuesday , February 9, 2016

Today I decided to go in to the town of Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue after work to see if there was anywhere I could take some interesting shots.

I decided to go on the mini island and take a look around. This is the photo I chose to go with because the clouds look so interesting and the shadows from the bridge on the water and island below add to the contrast. Take a look!

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, ISO6400, Aperture at f25 and shutter speed at 0.4 seconds, photo was enhanced in black and white.

DAY TWENTY
Wednesday , February 10, 2016

Another beautiful winter day. I went out at lunch time to take some photos by the lake. These snowy days are so breath-taking, makes you just want to turn the fireplace on and drink hot chocolate (and maybe... roast some marshmellows?).

This photo was shot using my Canon 50mm lens at 50mm, ISO100, Aperture at f25 and shutter speed at 1/100 seconds.

DAY TWENTY-ONE
Thursday , February 11, 2016

Finally! I finally received my tripod plate last night, I couldn't wait for it to get dark today so I could go out and take some astrophotography!

Take a look at two of my favourite photos from tonight.

This first photo was shot using my Canon 50mm lens at 50mm, ISO100, Aperture at f2.5 and shutter speed at 15.0 seconds.

The second photo was shot using my Canon 50mm lens at 50mm, ISO800, Aperture at f2.5 and shutter speed at 15.0 seconds.

DAY TWENTY-TWO
Friday , February 12, 2016

Today I was looking forward to having dinner at my parent's house and seeing everyone (including the doggies).

I decided that I would take my photo of the day there. I took a bunch of different photos, but I couldn't resist this one of Charlie! Isn't he just so cute! (I would have posted one of Stella as well, but she doesn't like to sit still, so I'll take one of her on a brighter day outdoors)

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 44mm, ISO400, Aperture at f5 and shutter speed at 1/5 seconds.

DAY TWENTY-THREE
Saturday , February 13, 2016

Today was a busy, but great day. Christopher and I went to my brother's (Nick) new house to help him with some of the renovations. Nick was building a wall, while Chris and I put in hardwood flooring upstairs.

At around 7pm, we heading over to Chris's dad's house for a birthday dinner for Cali. It was a lot of fun, great people and great food.

When we were leaving, Isabelle (Chris's step-mother) asked me what photo I took today. I had totally forgotten to take a photo! When we got home I looked at my camera and decided since I was tired, might as well take a shot of the nice, warm, comfy bedding I was about to snuggle under!

Well here it is!

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 34mm, ISO200, Aperture at f4.5 and shutter speed at 1.3 seconds.

DAY TWENTY-FOUR
Sunday, February 14, 2016

Well today was not a day I was going to step outside. It was -30°C here with the windchill. I took some random photos all day long, but finally I decided to go with this one (see below).

Roasted tomato basil soup with a croissant grilled cheese. Perfect for dinner on a (real) Canadian winter's day.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 18mm, ISO100, Aperture at f3.5 and shutter speed at 1/5 seconds.

DAY TWENTY-FIVE
Monday, February 15, 2016

Today after work I went to my brother and his wife's house to go take some photos of her pregnant belly.

We took a bunch of different photographs but this one is definitely my favourite. I love how the focus is on the ultra sound image. I definitely would have liked the image to be sharper though.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, ISO400, Aperture at f4.0 and shutter speed at 1.0 seconds.

DAY TWENTY-SIX
Tuesday, February 16, 2016

I know for everyone who had to work today (me included) was cursing the weather this morning, but I love the way everything looks when it's frozen. I wish I could have gotten out earlier while it was still brighter out.

I stopped on my way home to take a couple of photos, this one came out really well.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, ISO100, Aperture at f5.6 and shutter speed at 2.0 seconds.

DAY TWENTY-SEVEN
Wednesday, February 17, 2016

I was so excited to see that the trees were still covered in ice this morning. The was the sun rays looked so magical coming through the branches.

I went out at lunchtime to go take some photos. I love the way this photo looks, the frozen steel makes me shiver just looking at it!

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 42mm, ISO100, Aperture at f6.3 and shutter speed at 1/800 seconds.

Today, while driving home I saw how beautiful the setting sun looked on the frozen trees. I just had to stop somewhere to take a photo.

Here it is!

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, ISO100, Aperture at f11 and shutter speed at 1/25 seconds.

DAY TWENTY-NINE
Friday, February 19, 2016

First of all, I would like to congratulate my brother, Nick and his wife, Martina on the birth of their baby boy, Jack Robert Burns. I know I speak for the whole family when I say we are all ecstatic! I can't wait to meet the little guy tomorrow (expect a photo!).

Today I was busy at work and knew I had work (freelance) to come home to, so I knew I was going to run out of time to take a photo. I took this photo on my way home (yesterday... I know, I cheated, but I just didn't have the time today – however I made all the necessary enhancements tonight, and technically I did take photos of products at work today, but that's a little boring to post on my blog).

The sun was setting, so I was taking a bunch of photos of the sunset, but when I turned around I saw the moon. It looked pretty awesome, so I took a few photos. I love how this one turned out, you can see all the dark craters.

This photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 55mm, ISO100, Aperture at f16 and shutter speed at 1/15 seconds.

DAY THIRTY
Saturday, February 20, 2016

So, here it is... the long awaited photo of my nephew Jack. He is the most precious little baby I've ever met. He is quite calm and loves to be held (I know, I know, what baby doesn't).

This first photo is baby Jack smiling, it just melts my heart, I couldn't not post it! The next photo is of the new family, my brother, Nick, his wife, Martina, and Jack. Okay, I don't want to go on writing a whole lot because like they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here's 2,000.

This first photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 29mm, ISO200, Aperture at f4 and shutter speed at 1/8 seconds.

This second photo was shot using my Canon 18-55mm lens at 24mm, ISO400, Aperture at f4 and shutter speed at 1/8 seconds.
