My photo challenge for this week was the word ‘TINY’ submitted by Becky. After I read this challenge I immediately fixated upon the story of Alice in Wonderland. (I LOVE that story!) This challenge reminded me of when Alice drank from the vial and shrunk down so that she could fit through the door into Wonderland. However, directly following that first thought I reprimanded myself with this wisdom, ‘Whoa – slow down! That idea is far too much work to reproduce!’. Taking my own advice I wracked my brain all week and weekend for a simpler idea but, in the end (the VERY end), I gave up and gave in. So here it is – my ‘tiny’ bit of Wonderland. 🙂
Big huge thanks to my beautiful little model Jaelynne – you are awesome! And to Hannah (my daughter) for all her help frantically making props at the last minute!!! I love you both!
HEY DON’T LEAVE YET! I figured since I keep forgetting to post the next draw on Thursday mornings I ought to just post it now – NEXT week’s challenge is ‘LOVE’ submitted by Ginny – check back next Wednesday to see what kind of photos I can conjure up. 🙂
Happy day friends!
Although I don’t do professional portrait photography as a job anymore I can’t help sharing some of my past favourites from my years as ‘Ryckman Photography’!
I have always loved film. Sometimes during movies I’ll miss the plot entirely because I’m too busy focusing on the videography.
The process of capturing moving images fascinates me and so I’ve decided that it is time! I’m on a quest to learn this craft.
I began my interest in still photography in 1991 (my first year of University). I took 4 years of photography while I obtained my Fine Arts degree and have been a professional photographer now for 17 years. While I feel quite confident in my regular photography skills I haven’t the foggiest idea how to do film. This is where Jayli and Hayden come in. I recently photographed their formal wedding portraits in exchange for some lessons in videography. Hayden is a brilliant photographer/director/videographer. Check out this short film that he and Jayli created recently > LISTEN
I’m so excited to maybe one day show you some of my very own films but today I’ll just share their wedding pics. Grab a cup of coffee and settle in for some eye candy!
