Jeff Hamon Scenic Fine Art Photography Regina Sask: The forest floor

July 30, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I love my 'bug suit.' Well, let's clarify. I "strongly dislike" mosquitos and can only handle so much bug spray so a few years ago I got a nice nylon mesh outfit with full mitts and a hood. While I was away this past week at Baker's Narrows in Manitoba, on Lake Athapapuskow, I had to throw on the ol' bug suit as I ventured into the trees for some macro photography.

It was also a fun experience (when I WASN'T wearing the mosquito-netting-suit) to have a group of campground kids follow me around after they saw me laying on the ground staring at a leaf through my camera lens. "Hey guy who takes pictures, how about this? How about that? Is this pretty? How about this acorn?" etc. It was pretty amusing.

They really got a kick out of how I told them that sometimes you just have to stop, get down really low and see what's down there on the ground or the forest floor. The things that we normally don't get to see or pay much attention to, as "non-photographers."

It's only the geeks like me who stroll past an old stump or leaf and feel the need to lay down, covered by mosquitos and black flies, and get a close up shot of it to show others.

I hope you enjoy this little set, some of which will be available for purchase as a set of smaller pieces in one 'collage display'!

Always keep lookin' down!
