Photography Overview
What is Photography?

Photography is the science, art, application and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film. Photography is employed in many fields of science, manufacturing (e.g., photolithography), and business, as well as its more direct uses for art, film and video production, recreational purposes, hobby, and mass communication.

Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure. With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing. The result with photographic emulsion is an invisible latent image, which is later chemically "developed" into a visible image, either negative or positive depending on the purpose of the photographic material and the method of processing. A negative image on film is traditionally used to photographically create a positive image on a paper base, known as a print, either by using an enlarger or by contact printing.

I've always loved capturing wildlife in their natural habitat.

I captured this shot of the Seagull on a dock in Kingston Ontario.

Vehicles. Cars. Trucks. Motorcycles. Photographic Opportunities

I've always loved going to local car meets, show and shines, and capturing some of the more interesting vehicles.

Buildings offer some unique opportunities to capture some interesting shots.

Obviously some architecture is far more intriguing than others, and provide some cool textures.

Taking pictures of vehicles is more than just taking a picture of the whole vehicle.

Different angles, perspectives and closeups can dramatically change the look of the photo.

Capturing beautiful scenery is very rewarding for me.

I love taking shots of bridges, water, and nature in general.
