My Lucky Catch by Joseph T. Meirose IV

Currently unavailable for purchase

Like most non-full time photogs, it a struggle, and constant juggle, in finding the time to get out and capture images, let alone edit them later. As a father of 2 young children, husband to a busy wife’s schedule, and my own work, the only free time I can sometimes find is during walks w/ the family in the evening. Luckily we live on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario, which affords a lot of photographic opportunity.

So, as we head out for an evening walk, I usually bring along my camera and a lens or two. That’s it, no tripod, no other gear. Which, when shooting HDR or long exposures, can be quite a challenge. Even if I were to bring a tripod w/ me, the kids end up tugging and playing with it. If not the gear, they are constantly pulling on my leg or impatiently waiting on me to catch up.

    Yes I know what you mean!! Difficult to juggle all that…. But what a pay off here!!

  • Ugh…crazy sometimes. It’s a miracle I get some of the images I do. I keep asking my wife to snap a pic of both kids tugging on my legs when I’m composing a shot. lol Cheers!
