Last week I found the photography of Irene Suchocki by chance while looking up some information on Lens Baby systems for my EP1. After seeing a couple of her photos I jumped over to her Flickr stream and was absolutely blown away by her work. One of the things that I love about her stuff is the atmospheric qualities she manages to capture, and the faded dream like qualities that are represented in her work.

Canadian Irene Suchocki is a self-taught freelance photographer that uses a variety of styles and techniques, both in-camera and in her digital darkroom o achieve her signature look.

All of the shots are masterfully composed, and when I started looking into the additional information about her shots I noticed that a large portion of them are being shot on her Canon EOS 5D with a EF24-70mm f/2.8L or 200mm lens. She is managing to achieve the shallow depth of field and concentrated focus by carefully manipulating her aperture, and exposure settings.

According to her web site, “Faithfully capturing a scene is less important than finding that little bit of mystery, evoking a certain mood, or telling a story.”

Her work has appeared on numerous book covers, on television, and has been exhibited at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Christmas Snowstorm of 2009

Late Christmas Eve the rain flipped over to snow and gave us the gift of 10 inches of White Christmas in the morning. Over the last 2 days it has pretty much snowed non-stop, and I have been doing a lot of shoveling. My driveway, my neighbors, mine again, sidewalks, digging out the neighbors car last night. So today, I decided to snap a few pics with the EP1 and the Lens Baby attachment.
