DescriptionNew Year's day I woke up to a perfect crisp, clear morning with pink just starting to tint the trees. As a parting gift, 2009 had left me blearly-eyed and muddled but I managed to wrestle out of the warm covers and load the film into my Hasselblad. I took out both the Hasselblad and my DSLR. I managed to capture about 3 frames with each before I remembered that: A) I live in Canada and it's -25,B) I couldn't feel my fingers anymore, andC) 2009 felt like it was playing a drum inside my head.Still, I was pumped about getting the film back from the morning. The digital shots were great, and I had used a different type of film than usual so I wanted to see what it could do. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. A few days later, I finished off the roll of film, unloaded it. I quickly realized that along with the hangover, 2009 had left me ham-fisted and, in my not-so-hot state, I had loaded the film backwards. Needless to say, I didn't capture a single image on film. Sigh... luckily we have the digital images from that morning and looking at them I don't regret a minute.
Teryn Robinson, Calgary Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement As a landscape photographer, I'm interested in promoting the conservation and preservation of the natural world. I strive to create photos that make the viewer want to renew their connection with their environment. The inspirations for my work are the amazing landscapes that surround me, from the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean.
I'm also very interested in experimenting with different photographic mediums. Digital photography, medium format film, and polaroid instant film create a huge stylistic spectrum.
Photography means the world to me and I'm so grateful to be able to share that with others. I want to take a chance to thank you all for your support and allowing me to do what I love.
