    Thanks. I think I'm afraid to blow out the whites on a shot like this so I end up underexposing them a little bit.

    Better to underexpose and raise in post a tad then to overexpose, so good logic there. The should could really benefit from a bit of sharpening and selective dodging/burning to show off that cracked ice. Here's a 3 minute edit, hoping that's ok based on your ok to edit setting.

    Hardy Falls - 48/52
    by FourB Photography, on Flickr

    I ran into a couple other local photogs while I was out shooting this location this week. They told me that two days prior, the falls had been completely frozen over which is what I was anticipating any ways. I'm glad that they weren't!

    I think the running water mixed with ice just adds to the composition.

    I wanted to capture the whole scene and not just focus in on the falls themselves. The mix of snow covered and bare rocks really added to the scene and I think the black and white really brings out the detail in every thing.

    Cool project, I just stumbled across it for the first time but read through it all. I think your first shot still may be the strongest of the entire series but it was interesting to see how you went from one area of interest to another. Well done :headbang:

    Thank you.

    I'm a big fan of the first shot too, but I thought that was more sentimental than anything.

    The train set is probably another of my favorites.

    I hope everyone is enjoying their Holiday Season.

    I'm in Northern Manitoba this week and next, on the Saskatchewan border, and was hoping to shoot the night sky but the clouds haven't lifted since our arrival.

    At least the in-laws have a photogenic pup to keep me busy.

    This week I braved the minus 27 Celsius temperature with a windchill of minus 42 to get my shot. The skies finally cleared up here in Northern Sask and I couldn't resist the last few moments of daylight.

    Just about done this project, one more photo to go.

    I don't think I will be doing another weekly project for 2015 but I'm going to find another personal project to work on to keep going on my photographic journey.

    Happy New Year everyone!

    This is Stacey.

    I met him at the Orange Toad in Flin Flon, MB while having a coffee on one of my last days of vacation.

    After meeting and talking for a few minutes, Stacey wanted to show me his new glasses so I asked if I could take his picture. He turns 42 next month.

    So I've come to the end of my year long, 52 week project.

    When I set out to do this project, I never had a theme in mind really and that's pretty evident going through the set. There's a pretty big mixed bag of styles and types of photography.

    It was a good learning experience and there are a quite a few images I am proud of.

    I've enjoyed taking portraits of interesting people a lot more than I thought I would and it's helped me get over a fear of talking to strangers while I have the camera.

    My next project will be this exact type of photography however I'm not going to put a time frame on it for now, it's just something that I will be keeping an eye out for over the next few months and maybe stretch it out over a year or two and put together a photobook. It will not include interviews like the Humans of New York project but more or less conversations with people.

    If you'd like to see the whole project in an easier to view format you can find it here

    Some of you will notice there is no week39, life was just too busy then and that week was a total bust.

    Thank you to everyone who viewed these images over the last year and to all those who provided some input.
