South Carolina – Sunrise Attempt

After I was pretty successful taking sunrise picture in Myrtle Beach last year, I was looking forward to using some of my new gear when I went back this year. The toughest part of sunrise pictures is you really have no idea what you are going to get until you are out there. Clouds are your best friend, but as you walk out in pitch black, last night’s weather forecast only gives you a fuzzy idea of what you are […]

Ice Hotel, Montreal

Once a year Montreal has a winter event called Celebration of Light. It gets cold here, so we celebrate what we can. One of the highlights is the Montreal Ice Hotel, and the local photography meet-up group planned on attending one very cold night. I arrived a little early after taking shots of the Montreal Underground, so I walked around a little with a friend before meeting up with the group. We talked a little, compared gear and then headed […]

South Carolina – Sunset Photoshoot

On one of the first evenings in South Carolina, I was on the balcony of the hotel looking down the beach. The sun was setting inland and the beach in the far distance had that hazy orange light being cast over the blowing sand and shadowed hotels. I didn’t have the option to go out and shoot, but had two opportunities later in the week. The first evening I went out, I took my 6yr old son out with me. […]

Celebration of Light – Night Photoshoot

Every year, Montreal has a winter festival called the High-Lights Festival and I had been looking forward to shooting it for the past few months. The two week festival just happened to fall in the middle of a planned family vacation. I would miss the main event but still be able to get out to an event called the Celebration of Light. One of the attractions of this event was a large Ferris Wheel in Old Montreal. Since seeing a […]

Location, Location – Fireworks Photoshoot

This was my second fireworks photoshoot, and I was to heading out with my buddy Nick. Initially, I knew that I wanted to take pictures from a different vantage point, so I started to research locations. Using Google maps (which is a great method by the way), I found a small park across the port from where they were being launched. I wasn’t sure how the access was, so I planned to head out earlier in case we had to […]

Test Shot - Long Exposure and ND Filters

Long Exposure & ND Filters

When I bought my new lens, I was cross-sold a filter set. It had a UV and Polarizer filter, but the one I was most excited about was the ND filter. I wanted to work with ND filters for a while, and I’ll write an article about them when I get a chance. What I have is a 0.6 filter which according to what I read gets me 2 stops of fun. Trying to get at least one good sunset […]

First Nights in Ontario – Night Photoshoot

On a trip to Ontario with the kids, I really wanted to do some night photography. Landscape & Night Photography is where I really want to shine as a photographer. I had done a few tests with 2-3min exposures off my front balcony, but I really don’t have much of view and there is an orange hazy everywhere. On the first night in Ontario, I set up a lawn chair and my tripod and ran through a couple of 3-5min […]
