I have been shooting a lot lately with a small point and shoot digital – a Canon G10. Some really diverse subjects and some rather experimental type images, at least for me. I find a smaller camera is wonderful for practicing my eye compositionally and so will be posting a bunch of images that may not necessarily be beautiful or even attractive, but are in fact me “practicing my eye”. This kind of “practice” I feel is essential in helping me understand relationships between colours, shapes, textures, patterns, brightness levels, sharpness vs. unsharpness, different bokeh effects, etc. this first image isn’t exactly much of a study, but was just one of the first images I made with the camera of my son Thomas, who came along on a walk with me along the Red Deer River.
