Day 3.1 – Disaster in Grenoble ( Err 20 )

As I mentioned in the last post, I arrived in Grenoble and all was good. The day after was the day I would stop by the location that this whole trip was based on. All the money and time spent was soon to be morphed into a result. While I understood that I might get there and there would be no shot, it was still pretty exciting. I clear all the days images onto my laptop and re-formatted the memory […]

GPS and Google Maps

So my big planning session for the Trip to France has been going on for a good few months. I am pretty much finishing up, but I thought I would share the process I went through. Finding the Stops: The first thing I did was decide on the places I wanted to stop for the night. My wife had convinced me not to go all the way down to Nice as it was two pretty long drives in a row. […]

Dream Camera

Every time I see an image on flickr that impresses the hell out of me, it is taken with this camera. Of course it isn’t the camera that makes the photo, but there is just something about the full frame 5D that gives images a certain feel that only the 5D can. I have read the debates about full and crop sensor, and the one major reason I want to get this camera is the brilliant images it takes at […]

My Next Dream Lens

So I am a bit under internal debate. I have been checking out the Canon 24-105 f4 EF L lens recently and I was pretty sure that this was the next good lens I wanted to buy in the next few years. It had been labelled as one of the best travel lenses you can buy, and the range seems pretty perfect when I look at the images I usually take with the Canon 14-40mm I have been using for […]

Extension Tube Madness

While making a purchase on Amazon.com a while back, I found a set of extension tubes for 15$. Because of the price, I really wasn’t expecting much, but bought them to give them a try. They were pretty hard to use, but I had a lot of fun with them. There is no automatic focus with them, so I found the easiest way was to set everything manual and move my camera back and forth the focus. It didn’t work […]

Super Moon – Nighttime Photoshoot

As I was reading the local paper online, I found an article about a ‘Supermoon’ the coming Saturday. Apparently it only happens every 20yrs, so I made arrangements to go take pictures. Brad, a friend I met at a photography meetup group,  would join me after he went shooting in Rawdon. We emailed back and forth to try to find a good location. The first was the observation area on Mount Royal. It has a great eastward view of the […]

What is in the Backpack

Here is a list of what I have in my backpack. I don’t bring it all out all the time, but if might give you some ideas. My Camera My lenses A Tripod (slings onto the back) Filter Pack Rain Cover Mini Mag Light iPad with Camera Connection Kit (if travelling) USB Cable Pair of extra gloves Extra hat Extra Battery and Charger Extra SDHC Cards USB Stick (not sure why) Canon IR Remote GPS (Garmin or my iPhone) Padlock […]

ND & Graduated ND Filters

I have wanted to use a Graduated Neutral Density filter for a while. To be honest, it is mostly for the cool factor, but I can definitely see what the benefits would be. I have a good amount of photographs where the sky is blown out, with the most recent ones happening when I was photographing the falls in Rawdon. This week I finally went out and bought one. With that said, I am writing this article based on researching […]

The Dream Lens

This is the lens I am saving up for: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens. I spotted this lens when the initial thought of replacing my kit lens was mulling around in my brain. I have seen so many good reviews for this lens, I can’t help but get a little excited by it. I was debating on getting a faster lens with a better the f/4 rating, but decided to go with image quality instead of speed. I tend […]

My New Lens

So I picked up my zoom lens. Even though the reviews commented that the focus was a little fuzzy, I decided to save the money and go for the EF-S 55-250 from Canon. I picked it up from <a title=”B&amp;H photo” href=”http://www.bhphoto.com” target=”_blank”>B&amp;H Photo</a>. As a landscape photographer, I really do not have a need for a zoom lens, so I was just looking for something to use when shooting pictures of the kids playing sports. The price was right, […]
