Day X – The Wedding

My big adventures in France started with a good friends wedding. I was hoping to have purchased a good flash by the time I arrived but that didn’t happen. I wasn’t really planning on taking any pictures at the wedding since not only was I in the wedding party and probably wouldn’t have time, I also suck at photos of people. While it is something I want to work on, it really isn’t in the direction I want to take […]

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 […]

Summer

One of the attractions of this event was a large Ferris Wheel in Old Montreal. Since seeing a […]

Test Shot - Manual Focus

Testing Out Manual Focus

I had to drive up north again, so I was hoping I could visit Rawdon to try to get my focus in check. The weather was nice and gray again, so after I was finished my errands, I started to drive back home. Off Highway 15, there is this great old drive-in theater. It is now just a vacant lot, but the old metal screens are still there and I have always wanted to stop. I got a little lost […]

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 […]
