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 […]

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 […]

Turn off Image Stabalization when shooting on a Tripod OR when shooting at a high shutter speed.

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 […]

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 […]

Panorama Goodness

This is the first panorama I created with 10 photos of Old Montreal right before a fireworks display. Thanks Vlad for the instructions, how you included the fireworks in yours is still very impressive.

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 […]

Crop your images creatively. You don’t have to stick to a 4:3 aspect ratio
