“As the winter winds down with dull skies, I fondly reflect back on the memories of bright autumn days, filled with colour, cheer, and times spent among the trees.” – Ed Lehming I believe I like this time of year (late winter) the least. There are hints of warmer days ahead, but between… Read More
From Where I Stand
When I started taking my photography more seriously, I used a very simple concept: take a bunch of photos from a single vantage point. Move up, down, and around, but limit your ‘centre’ to a single point. This technique forced me to become a bit more inventive, it forced me to carefully consider things that may not grab my attention right away. So rather than photographing a single subject I began to look for other elements that may not be obvious. I also forced myself to make photos in fairly mundane surroundings, looking for interesting elements.
This became the foundation to much of my photography. I spend a lot of time carefully assessing my surroundings and looking for the best compositions.
The ‘tag’, From Where I Stand has also made me realize that through all the photos I have made in the past several years, I have borne witness to some pretty amazing things, and I look forward to sharing more of them here, along with the stories of their creation.

There have been… Read More
“We all find ourselves reaching for something lately. For some, we have reached our limits, for others, it’s more of a stretch than a reach. On dull and cloudy days, the trees continue to reach, with no clear goal visible, other that reaching upwards, to eventual light and life” – Ed Lehming I… Read More
“On my forest journeys, the trees are my constant companions. Their aspect changes, depending on how you see them. They are the same, but appear different. Perspective changes everything.” – Ed Lehming I have avoided this type of shot because it seems a bit ‘put on’. I look at these images on web… Read More
