Photo Shoots

Pier - Part IV - Sunrise

Beautiful Carolina – Sunrise Photoshoot

I woke up at 5:30 with the sun rising at 6:30. I grabbed my bag and tripod and started to walk down the beach as the horizon started to lighten. I probably should have gone out a little earlier, but I rushed down the beach and got there in time. I had picked a fantastic day to go out. There were wisps of clouds, and I knew they would pick up the color nicely. I started shooting as light started […]

Under the Pier - Long Exposure

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. […]

The Pier & Fog

South Carolina – Fog Photoshoot

I woke up to fog on the first morning of my South Carolina family vacation. It was pretty thick, and didn’t dissipate until well into the morning. I was sort of kicking myself for not going out, but I was on vacation, so I didn’t feel all that bad. The next morning we woke up to fog again, and I knew I would have to go out. I grabbed my bag and tripod, kissed the wife and kids and walked […]

Celebration of Light

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 […]

Down Stream

Winter Falls – Waterfall Photoshoot

The sky was pretty clear, and it looked to be a pretty good day to try some winter pictures at the Rawdon waterfalls. Picked up Nick and we headed up north. Half way there, we hit a snow squall, and I got a little worried. Not 15 minutes later, we pulled out of it and there were bright blue skies with fluffy white clouds. We arrived about an hour before sunset, so we didn’t have as much time as I […]

Sunset of Montreal

Jan 29th – Sunset Photoshoot

Since the last fireworks shoot, I have been wanting to return to the same spot to take a sunset picture. It looks over the city, and from what I could guess, the sun should set to the left of the tallest buildings. Sitting at home during the day, the weather report was looking like clearing skies at around 4pm. With sun setting around 4:30, I was betting on some good clouds to take pictures. I headed down with all my […]

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 […]

Old Montreal - Jan 2011

Old Montreal – Night Photoshoot

I had planned this photo shoot for a while, but we just couldn’t get it off the ground. It being the holidays didn’t make it any easier. Sunday the 2nd seemed to be the last chance before it started to get colder, so we gave it a shot. I went out with a friend of mine who has the same camera, and the plan was to start on one side and walk threw the port – then turn around and […]

First Burst

Fire & Ice – Fireworks Photoshoot

I attended my first Meetup.com event recently. The planned shoot was a fireworks display that happens in the Old Port of Montreal every Saturday night. This being my first fireworks shoot, I was pretty excited. The people in the group were great. It was nice to meet other photographers at various levels and hear some of the techniques they used. A big thanks to Brad who let me use his White Balance lens cap what-ever-its-called and has now succeeded in […]

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 […]
