Winter Trips & Some Orb Spinning

I went all out during Christmas and spent many sleepless nights chasing after the stars and getting used to the cold Edmonton winter! A buddy also brought me to a “secret” spot in Airdrie on my way back to Calgary. I got to see some pretty amazing scenery out in the rangeroads of Airdrie close to Calgary!

While out chasing the northern lights and getting to know more about stars. I realize there is a lot of extra traveling and time wasted when you arrive to a cloudy day! There is certainly a level of dedication and commitment (like everything else) when it comes to landscape photography. The weather is not always on your side, and you may not be ready physically or mentally whenever the opportunity arises. The moon may be too bright, the aurora may not be that strong, or it may be too cloudy! Never mind the road conditions and your personal schedule!

Since a nice winter break is all the time I’m allowed to get out there and shoot, I have learned to make the most out of my time. I continued to play with light painting and recently began to spin light orbs.

It took a little bit of time to get used to, and the tool I built has also changed since the first time I started! I hope you enjoy this post of my journey photographing the winter in Edmonton and Calgary! If you guys have any questions about my light painting adventure, don’t hesitate to give me a shout! I’d love to talk to you!
