Welcome to Eye for Detail!
Here you can find out more about us and look at some of our favourite photos. Almost all the photos you see were taken by me, Trent Ernst. Some were taken by my talented second shooter, Darin Clisby, and a few were taken by my wife, Colette. If the photos were taken by someone else other than me, I will tell you.
Feel free to look around and make comments. We appreciate your feedback.

So, there’s this picture that Selenne really likes:
And, when I asked her if she wanted to go out and play model for me, she said “can we do a photo like this?”
I said, “sure. In fact, we can do a whole bunch….”
And then, since I had brought out my big umbrella, I decided to just get a couple straight up portraits with the sunset behind. This is the best of the bunch:
And then, since the light was fading, we decided to have some fun, first with the sparklers:
And then with a cell phone:
And finally, with both:
So, this was an experiment, and one that almost ended in disaster. Last year, I picked up an underwater housing for my camera, but haven’t really had much chance to use it since getting it.
But Michelle was both pregnant, and a bit of a mermaid fan (so much that she has her own mermaid tail, which she forgot to bring along), and I asked her if she wanted to try some underwater photos.
Let me tell you, they’re harder to shoot than they appear. Maybe it’s just my … natural buoyancy, but it’s tough to stay underwater and compose a shot while both you and your subject are moving.
The trouble came when I decided to change focus. I pulled the front lens cap off the housing, but didn’t screw it back on tight enough, and, after only managing to get a handful of photos, my camera started firing rapidly and without ceasing. I jumped out of the pool, opened it up, pulled the battery, dried it off and let it air out for a week, and it works fine, but it was a lesson learned.
So, these are the photos that I managed to take that were in focus and composed halfway decently and all that rot. It was an interesting experience, and I need to practice, so if anyone in the Tumbler Ridge area wants to play, let me know.
When I was down in Vancouver a while back, I tried to set up a bunch of photoshoots, all of which fell through due to crappy weather.
All that is, save one. Nicole and I got together on the last day I was down there and the rain blessedly held off for a few hours. Heck, it even got sunny there for a few minutes.
Nicole does more urban dance, hip hop with some break dancy moves tossed in for good measure. Which is all about pavement and hard surfaces. So naturally, I took her into a forest and said “good luck”.
She did admirably, given the lack of flat surfaces and generally sketchy conditions, and was extremely good natured about the whole thing, to boot. We did some more model-y photos, too, which I shall be posting over the next few days. For now, enjoy.
After a whole whack of technical difficulties (sorry about that…) ere’s the digital wedding album for Sherissa and Morgan. It’s longer than our normal album, because our happy couple here opted for the digital option, which includes the photos on an iPad.
To view the album, click on the album cover, and it will load in a flash viewer. If you are trying to view on a cell phone/iPad or just have moral objections to Flash, you can view the HTML version here.
