Announcements + Photographers Log - Week 9

Hello Saskatoon! This week I have an exciting announcement.

Katie Deobald Photography will be doing the official event coverage for Saskatoon Blitz 2013! Pictured on the left is about half of the fantastic team of organizers who make this thing a reality every year.

Saskatoon Blitz, for those of you who are new to it, is an entertainment expo happening here in Saskatoon on June 8th and 9th, with bonus events on June 7th! The guest line up is very exciting this year, including one of my favourite voice actors, John Dimmagio! Being a huge Futurama fan, I know him best as Bender but some of you may also recognize him as Jake the Dog from Adventure time.

I will also be running a Cosplay Mini-Shoot for anyone wanting some great photos of their costume, keep an eye on this blog for more details.

Below are more of my images from this week. As you can see I am still very much in love with the lightbox I built last week.


Photographers Log - Week 8

Hello Saskatoon! Photographers love a new toy, and I have to say my new little desktop studio for product photography has been the highlight of this week. The darling little needle felted sculpture on the left was made by my mother as a birthday present some years ago. I imagine more images of her handmade work will appear here the next time she is in town to loan me a few more of these little darlings.

Happy Valentines! Photographers Log - Week 7

Happy Valentines! The image on the left showcases something interesting my husband and I discovered this week -- My ring fits, perfectly, on a Canadian penny (though sadly it shifted a touch was I took this photo) and his fits precisely on a dollar. I thought it would make the perfect image for the occasion.

Now, this next image requires something of an explanation. For several years the hanging lamp in my kitchen has been home to this pile of dollar store toy magnets. I am not sure there was a reason we put them there, and I sometimes wonder if I will remember to take them with us if we ever move.

Photographers Log - Week 6

Hello Saskatoon! I was visiting 8th Street Comics this week when I saw the most exciting sign on the side of the building. It seems that 1006 8th St E is now also home to a fashion and bridal boutique specializing in Pakistani and Indian clothing. What an incredible shop -- I already had a salwar from a friend's wedding a few years ago, but when I saw the lovely piece that features not once but twice in my images this week, I knew I had to have it. So beautiful! If you haven't been, I highly recommend stopping by H.A Collections.

Also featured in my images this week is a goofy sneak peek at a recent shoot with talented choir director Michael Harris. More images from that are soon to come, but this was one of my favourites. Cloning people remains one of my all time favourite things to do in photoshop.)

Excitement! I can't believe I forgot to post about this earlier -- Wedding Photo USA recently featured an image from one of my vintage engagement shoots in an article about theme weddings. You can click here to read the article now!

Photographers Log - Week 5

Hello Saskatoon! Successful photographers are always learning new things. Another week of experiments has yielded some interesting results. This week I decided to prove how much a good photographer can do with improvised equipment. All of the macro shots I took this week used only my camera's kit lens and the discarded magnifier from an old worklamp. What a fantastic experience! After many, many, many failed attempts I finally got a decent close-up of my eyelashes. (The light used was one of those little flexible LED's flashlights and there was a good deal of balancing and self-timers involved in this.)

To follow up on last week's post I also decided to include an actual photo of the choir at the start of rehearsals this week. Please click the "More" button below to see that image along with the rest of my experimients for the week.

Photographers Log - Week 4

Hello Saskatoon! Photographers all have their odd little fascinations. I love taking photos of water. Lakes, rivers, streams, even condensation. This week I decided to see what I could do with the droplets forming on my window in the morning. I enjoyed the result so much, I repeated the experiment the next day in different light.

My second image this week was actually taken with my cell phone just before leaving choir. (If you enjoy singing a group, you should consider joining the Saskatoon Choral Society. There is no audition required, and it is a truly lovely group of people.)

Photographers Log - Week 3

Hello Saskatoon! This is week 3, and this week I am tackling outdoor subjects. Snow, much like a wedding dress or any other bright white subject, can present interesting photographic challenges particularly when photographing outdoors where light is harder to control, so I decided I would venture out into the cold a few times to catch some winter beauty in my neighbourhood.

My second featured image this week has a little diagram in the corner to illustrate the "face" I saw when looking at this tree. As I walked by, it just struck me that the knot on the right looks for all the world like a monocle on the face of a grumpy muppet. (I am very in touch with my inner child.) As always, click on "More" to see the rest of my images for this week.

Photographers Log - Week 2

Hello Saskatoon! This is week 2, and I think the self-portrait I took today is my favourite image this week, but this scaly fellow is by far my favourite subject. Please click the "More" button below to view the rest of the gallery.

Happy New Year!

Hello Saskatoon! This Friday, January 4th marks the beginning of  a project I've been wanting to do for a long time. Starting today, I will be taking one photo a day and posting the results of the week on this blog every Friday. Some of these will have Photoshop done on them, some will not. Most of the ones from this week have at least a little bit. There are no set themes, but each week I will be taking at least one photo of what's outside one of my windows, and one self portrait. If any of you shutterbugs out there would like to join in, grab a camera, snap a photo and post a link to your blog or flickr account in the comments.
