Colin spent his life immersed in the study of Entomology and Horticulture (keeping the City of Calgary mosquito and weed free…) and only recently took up photography and exchanged capturing mosquito larvae for the capture of light. He shares: “I found myself overwhelmed when presented with my first DLSR camera. I have persevered and am continuing to learn and grow in my photography.”
He still feels far from comfortable with the camera settings and photo composition, but by sticking to pictures of things that do not move too quickly (buildings, landscapes) he has the opportunity to make several pictures using different camera settings and by changing the angles to arrive at different compositions. Colin then analyzes his images to identify positive and negative outcomes with the idea that he learns from his mistakes to move toward more satisfying end results over time.
It is his desire is to become more competent with macro imagery and advance to take pictures of of insects and plants, some that move and others that remain stationary.
Colin enjoys the opportunity to work with photographers of all levels in the club and looks forward to continued sharing and learning. He hopes you enjoy the images he has selected and encourages everyone to provide constructive feedback.
