Campus Collection no. 2

This is the result of carrying around my camera everywhere as I go to class and explore the city.

Mid-Summer Leaves – After a productive lecture session, I walked out to see the cheerful sunlight in quad. And yes, I am in fact doing school in the summer, haha. Here on campus, it has been at least 28°C everyday..or at least it feels like it. For this photograph, I stood under a shaded tree to capture the quiet mid-summer mood. I think the little holes in the leaves make it interestingly imperfect.

Van Vliet Complex – Even though you can’t see the actual building, I really like the effect of this shot. The Van Vliet Complex is the main recreation center on campus. It is the cone shaped building attached to the Butterdome. These two buildings are photographed together quite often (I’ll photograph that some other time to show you), but I wanted to see if I could capture it from a different perspective. It was successful! I even manged to capture some huge sunspots too!

Mackinnon Ravine – My fellow execs and I went down to the river valley for team bonding last week! I manage to capture this shot as we were walking back up the hill (very close to the water). We were planning on picking berries here too, but they were nowhere to be found! We had a great time nonetheless though.

Cafe Mosaics – This is my favourite vegan place to grab a nice meal after a draining midterm. [bokeh + street photography = new obsession]

Urban Street Art: #BarnE – I love that Cafe Mosaics features and supports upcoming artists.

Campus Collection no. 1

I got inspiration to pick up my camera lately. Specifically, I have been shooting architecture using a more wide-angle approach. Here are some hand-picked photos from around campus.

Back to Blogging!?!

Heeeey everyone!

I would really like to get back into blogging regularly, whether that is posting photos or just me rambling on about life. I would like to acknowledge all my new followers. Welcome to my blog :D! I take it a lot of you are in Mr. Bruce’s Photography 12 class at Kelly Road Secondary….yesyes? Hopefully you can gain some inspiration from my previous posts. Photography 12 was BY FAR my favourite class in high school. Also if you need any advice, shoot me a comment; I’m happy to help!

ANYWAYS, I haven’t touched my blog since the last day of photography. To be honest, I really haven’t picked up my camera since I moved to Alberta for Uni. I am currently in the mist of midterm season, working day and night studying, writing papers, and doing labs…..PSSHH, who am I kidding?…I am procrastinating like none other xD. No, but really, in the craziness that is university, campus atmosphere is beautiful and very uplifting and I would like to post some photos of campus very soon! There are many photo opportunities. I am apart of the established university photography club here on campus and I work on a design team for a a group called the Health and Wellness Movement. BUT YES, photos soon, I promise.

Good luck to everyone in school and whatever else life throws at you!

Talk soon (feel free to comment on this post).

Goodnight <33
