Dakota CoburnšŸŒ²Vancouver Island

This is Bruce the goose. Like humans, some animals are born with birth defects. The process of genetic differentiation is beautiful and deserves equal recognition in the world of nature photography. Bruce lives his life happily on a farm, spending his days playing with his bucket.

When I look at this photo and think about the day I captured it, I remember not wanting to be there: I was exhausted, had kids screaming next to me and poor visibility of the mountains. But at the same time, I knew this was a unique situation as I had no clue when I would be back, let alone with snowy conditions without a frozen lake.

Not going to lie, I panicked like crazy when we spotted this eagle alongside the highway. I was in the middle of filming slow motion clips of near by mountain peaks. My ISO was way too high and my aperture could have been faster but my trusty camera saved me. šŸ˜¬1/1000F 7.1ISO 1000A7riv Super 35mm modeTamron 70-180 @ 180mmšŸ¤Ŗ

After spending a day snowboarding and camping on Mount Washington, the sun had snuck in behind a cloud, so I lost my chance to capture a sunset photo. So, always ready to jump to the next shot, I decided to rush back down the hill to this river as itā€™s been on my list of shots. Again, the light wasnā€™t very flattering but I like the composition.

I want to be very transparent, I consider this digital art and not a landscape shot. I have a bunch of shots from my last day in Alberta, back in October. Wasnā€™t really sure what to do with them, was kinda a dull windy day. I figured I try something different with one of them, and I actually really like how it turned out! The Milky Way shot was from a hike in strathcona back in September. Swipe along to see the progression1. Final result2. The raw file3. Basic Lightroom adjustments4. The Milky Way shot5. Both images blended in photoshop6. The final image brought back into Lightroom adding some dodging and burning7. And a video clip right after I took the raw image šŸ˜Š

Last week I went to explore some sea caves with my good friend @johnf._96 When we arrived, we were so disappointed to find the caves covered in graffiti. It was very sad to see these fascinating rock formations disrespected. Peopleā€™s selfishness blows my mind.

Well, hereā€™s the first of many shots of Clayoquot Sound Iā€™ll be posting soon. For this shot, I was trying to get a sunrise photo. I was planning on capturing the bay (seen in the video attached) with a back lit glow, but the mountain peaks in the distance distracted me. So, I ended up shooting telephoto shots of the mountains for the remainder of the morning and ignored the bay.

Iā€™ve been wanting to get a shot of this view point for a while, but the conditions havenā€™t lined up. Iā€™ve always found this spot difficult to shot as itā€™s quite busy. This time, I took my time and found the right composition which was balanced and pleasing

I captured this photo about 20 minutes after the one I posted yesterday. The clouds started to look like pink cotton candy on top of the mountains. (On a side note, I didnā€™t realize until now that I have photographed the same peaks at sunrise and sunsetšŸ˜‚ )

This photo makes me realize how timing is so important in life. I had about 2 mins to set up to capture the sunset as it illuminated the fog. It reminds me of my days as a high performance athlete and how hard I worked to perfect my timing because if I let up, it would slip away.

I had bit of a set back on my photography career this week. When I go through bumps in the road like this, it reminds me of the time my rowing coach discussed the philosophy of turning a negative into a positive, regardless of the situation. Quite often itā€™s been the one tool that I use to keep moving forward.Anyways, hereā€™s a shot I captured right before snowboarding a section that took only 3 mins down but took 2 hours to hike up. If only I could do that in the summer.šŸ™ƒ

My friend had a heart attack the night before I took this picture but I still made him trek another 4 hours in the snow so that I could get this shot. I hope youā€™re happy. šŸ’” Also swipe for the making of, and the raw photo. ā¤ļø

Question for my photographer friends. Does anyone else have the polar pro Peter McKinnon Nd filters? If so, have you noticed the strange colour cast?

I like going back over photos from a few months ago and playing around with them to make a unique photo to practice my editing techniques. For this photo, I used 6 different images focusing on the waves as it is the most interesting part.

I got quite emotional after taking this photo. Iā€™ve been in the pursuit of capturing a intense sky during sunrise/sunset with a visceral landscape beneath. Finally, last Monday morning, after staying awake all night while climbing a snow capped mountain, I was able to capture that moment.

The pictures that I like most are the times where I have to accomplished something difficult, where I have personal growth from and developed my skills through challenging conditions. I like this picture a lot

This was from the summer, sometimes I miss how easy it was to just go out and hike without concern about the conditions. The last few months have taught me a lot about myself when I go out and shoot harsh conditions

Over the last few months, I have been editing photos from the same day. Iā€™ve been learning new techniques and itā€™s cool to see how my style has slightly changed over this short period of time.
