New adventures

When we first moved up here, I was excited about expanding my photography skills. My camera has been going nonstop since we moved here, as is quite obvious with the pictures you have all seen on this blog. I am beyond thrilled that Rob also has the same passion for photography that I do. Rob has the patience to learn how to use the different functions and settings on the camera that I just couldn't seem to grasp. I feel that our photography is reaching a new level, and we are thrilled to take it "to the next step". We were inspired by Jen who is also a phographer. She makes cards and postcards out of her photos. When we first moved here, I always said that the one thing the store was missing was postcards of local scenery. We have decided to put that idea on "the back burner" for now until Rob is in his own store, and then we may persue this. For now, we have decided to make cards of the scenery around here. We are in the process of having pictures printed and then will be assembling the cards. Here is a sample of some of the pictures we have done so far. As I am typing this Rob is outside in his heavy winter gear as the Northern Lights are out for the first time in over 2 weeks. We'll see what he brings in, and will keep you posted on when the cards are done and ready to be sold!

Lets do a card swap! I will send you a Nunavut scene for one of NWT! LOL
Great cards!

Right on!! Those look great. I really want to take a photography course so I can learn how to use all of the buttons on my camera. I think that is great that you are going to sell cards. Maybe I will do the same in Faro!

Tina...I would buy cards with photos like these in a heartbeat! I would leave them blank inside (if you are thinking of folding vs postcard) so they can be used for any occasion or a quick thank you etc. I guess living in the subzero has its advantages--great photo op's :)

Beautiful pics Tina! Cory is the "what does this function do" person in our house. I just wanna point and click and hope that each and every picture will be a masterpiece.

We have an amazing collection of sunsets over the Bedford Basin. I'll post a few of my favorites.

Jen - sounds like a plan. As soon as I get them printed and assembled I will send you one. I like your "over night shit" one the best. :)

OHN: I leave the cards blank for that exact reason. I'll let you know as soon as they are assembled. :)

Hey, where are you getting them printed at? Futureshop?

Jen said...

hahaha I know exactly what you are talking about!!! You will never let me live that down...I can tell lol!

Tina said...

Kara - I'm getting them printed at Extra Foods / Superstore. They are the cheapest and they mail them to the house for 2.95 anywhere in Canada, regardless of how many pictures you print.

Kara and Matt said...

Ohhh!! Do you upload them from home home to superstore??

Guess what!!! There is a superstore in Whitehorse and I will be able to buy my own groceries from there!

wooohooooo!!
