I recently fell back in love with infrared photography. While these are edits made in Photoshop and don’t quite look like the real thing, I had a blast going through old photos and picking out which ones I thought would look best with this particular edit. I’m in the market for a new camera but now, I definitely want to venture out and do some research on infrared modified cameras!
Just my luck that when I am able to venture out in hopes of a sunset, I’m greeted with a scene like this. It couldn’t be more of a rejection from Mother Nature. The Toronto skyline really does look so very different without the CN Tower and with so many skyscrapers being covered by fog. To a Torontonian, scenes like this always look like something from out of a dream.
I haven’t been able to photograph a good sunset in a while. This was mostly due to missing them because of the sun setting way too early and not being able to get to my prime locations in time. Even here, I’m not so pleased that I realized the sky was erupting so late but I’m glad I was able to capture it regardless.
I may have missed the first significant snowfall in Toronto on November first, but exactly a month later, I was ready for the second! It may not have been much, and it has disappeared by now, but at least I was able to capture some stunning scenes in Toronto’s Withrow Park.
These photos were taken on the same day as my previous post but I felt that they didn’t belong in that group and instead deserved their own post. These colours act like a placeholder for what winter may bring!
I can officially call these the last photos of autumn 2020! I shot these during golden hour and despite there being many bare branches, the trees were aglow with orange light. Fall is always a beautiful season, and if you ask me, it is the most beautiful, so I am a little sad to see it go. One thing I’m thankful for this year is that I had the time and opportunity to be able to go and take many, many photos of the foliage. I wasn’t so lucky last year. Looking into my Autumn 2019 folder was a little disappointing, seeing as I only had photos from one day and they weren’t what I’d call quintessential “autumn photography.” Compared to almost 200 photos from this year, I feel very blessed being able to look back and recall memories from those days and to have the visuals to go along with them. I feel proud of myself for being able to take photos that are some of my favourites ever and what I feel is some of my best work.
Feelings like these are what drive and motivate me to keep going and they give me something to look forward to. It’s been a very miserable year, and a tough few weeks for me personally. It may sound cheesy but sometimes it’s the little things that ground us and bring us some spark of joy.
I can’t wait to see what the second most beautiful season of the year, and by that I mean winter, has up its sleeve for us photographers.
