I am not a professional photographer.... although I would love to be.
I have never taken a course.... although I would love to.
So when I was asked to photograph a family farm during Harvest here in our "vegetable capital of Ontario" town, I was flustered, flattered, excited, and scared to death.

And I said yes.

So for the last few weeks, I have hobbled on over to the farm with my camera on one arm and my cast on one foot, and taken hundreds of pictures.

I am kinda known as the paparazzi down this road now. Many old men on bicycles have stopped to ask me why on earth I am out there in the muck with a broken foot taking pictures of onions and carrots.

I just tell them I love taking pictures and nothing excites me more than taking great photographs of simple objects.

Like carrots and onions.

Here is a preview. Just because.

These ARE STUNNING! I love the composition and you nailed the simplicity. Less is more when it comes to photographing. These need to be published! :D

You take very cool pictures. You make simple objects come to life. I hope we get to see some more. They really knew what they were doing asking you!

Gigi said...

They asked you because though you might not be a *professional* you do know what you are doing!

And those are some amazing photos!

...but the produce shots really, really make me hungry.

They are so gorgeous!! I love the simple shots of the onions and carrots...lovely. Hope to see more soon!!

You done good!!

And the only thing that keeps you from being a professional is that that no one paid you (yet). Are you getting paid for this job? I hope so! They should be very happy with what you've done!
