This past weekend I flew to Edmonton to spend a weekend with my folks and for my Dad and I to attend the Edmonton Photographic Tradeshow. Flying is certainly NOT my thing but that is another story for another time. I travel to Edmonton often as my daughter and two grandchildren live there but seldom do I dedicate time to spend with just my folks. I see them every time I am up but often the grandkids monopolize the time and the conversation and we feel the need to cram just a ton into a short few hours. So I was really looking forward to this opportunity. My Dad is the reason I became interested in photography and although he has moved to making videos, he still enjoys getting out there with his camera. I enjoy sharing this passion with him. So to dedicate some time for us and photography was simply perfection.
I arrived Friday night, spent the evening recovering from the flight and catching up. The tradeshow was Sunday so we had some time to poke about and take some snaps in the area, what better way to spend a gorgeous afternoon. Here’s a snippet of my perspective.
I made a purchase at the tradeshow and upgraded my camera to a full frame and I’m pretty excited to get out shooting with it. Watch for some beautiful portraiture to come along in the next few days as I acquaint myself with my new camera.
