Presenting...Kristin Jansen!

Umbrella & Awnings - Toronto - Kristin Jansen ©2006Uncle SteveR is proud to present some photos by his amazingly talented niece, Kristin Jansen of Oakville, Ontraio.

As you can see, Kristin, who is in her last year of a Nursing degree, has a superb eye for composition, pattern, color, and shapes.

I would like to take some credit, even some genetic credit, for her great talent, but alas, I can't - she's my wife's brother's daughter. Eggplants & Cukes - Toronto - Kristin Jansen ©2006I didn't even know Kristin was interested in photography until we were visiting with her family this past July. Sister-in-law Sue mentioned it to me, and the next day, Kristin and I got up early and went to Oakville's picturesque harbor on Lake Ontario around sunrise. She used my camera and came back with some excellent photos.

Leechees - Kristin Jansen ©2006Since then, Kristin bought her own camera, a Sony SteadyShot DSC-H2, and is making good use of it, as you can see here. About an hour ago, she showed me some of the photos she's made since I was last here, and straight out of the camera, they just knocked me out. She didn't have any photo-editing software yet, so I suggested that we download Picassa from Google, which we did, and we quickly ran the images you see here through Picassa for some minor cropping and levels adjustment.

I coulda easily picked another half-dozen or more photos, but one can only take so much genius at a time. So more to come from Kristin later on. Hangers - Kristin Jansen ©2006Actually, I'll try to talk her into putting up her own photo-blog - why not?

I'm very impressed by these pictures! I can't wait to see more from Kristin. The pictures really do remind me of your work, Steve. Amazing!

Good choice on the DSC-H2.
