Flames Win!

Last night the Calgary Flames played their first game of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs and I was down on the Red Mile to take it all in! I won’t give you a run down of the game because it’s late and I need to get to bed (I’m writing this at 12:20am), but all you need to know is the Flames won! When the Flames scored with 30 seconds left in the 3rd period the place I was in exploded! It was an unreal atmosphere and the city was on fire! Hopefully they Flames can keep it roll’n on Fridays game :).

Nooreen & Imran

On Sunday afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting Nooreen and Imran. I am shooting their wedding this summer and they came down to Calgary from Edmonton to wrap up some details for the wedding and shoot their engagement photos with me. On sunday it was crazy windy in Calgary and we chose our locations based on that. We would shoot a photo in one spot outside, then run in a building and shoot one in there to escape the wind and to warm up! haha. Then back outside to the least windy places we could find. This style of location decisions isn’t ideal, but it was fun! Both Noreen and Imran are super easy going and fun to be around. We shared many laughs together and I even got see them dance! You know it’s a good day when your dancing in the street :).

All photos shot with a Canon 6D & 17-40L, 28mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4 & 135L. I used a 580exii shot though a white shoot through umbrella in a few of the shots.

Flames Burning The Canucks

Camera: Canon 6D & 28mm 1.8 ~ Settings: f/14 – 1/125th – ISO 400

If you’re a hockey fan than you probably know the Calgary Flames have made the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs! And if your from Calgary, you know we are playing our arch rivals the Vancouver Canucks in the first round. So to kick things off right around here I had to let it be known how it’s going down. We’ll be burning those bastards up from the first puck drop! :D

Now about the photo. I had my Canon 6D set up on a tripod and triggered the camera with my Canon RC-1 remote. I had another tripod to camera left with a Canon 580EX ii pointing at me. Since I am originally from Vancouver, I had a jersey collecting dust in my closet. I didn’t actually burn the jersey though, for 2 reasons. One, I’m from Vancouver and still like that jersey haha. And 2, it was really windy and even if I could get the jersey to burn the flames wouldn’t have gone straight up and effect wouldn’t be nearly as dramatic. After I did the initial edit of the photo I photoshopped in the flames burning the jersey.

I expect to take a lot of flack from all my Vancouver friends and family over this picture haha. But I’ve been in Calgary for 3 years now and I started backing up this team the day I got here. As soon as that first hockey season started 3 years ago I was a straight up traitor¬†Calgary Flame. For me it’s all about the home team and this is my home now. GO FLAMES!

A Photo of Taking a Picture

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L at 22mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 0.5 seconds – ISO 4000

Last night I went out to shoot some photos downtown. After about 4 different locations I ended up here. At first I was just getting some skyline shots with the fence in the foreground, and then the idea to hop on the fence struck me.¬†I hopped up on the fence triggering my camera with my trusty Canon RC-1 remote. Inspiration struck again with this idea. I shot this photo about 16 different times with a variation of different settings. I had to make sure the shutter didn’t stay open to long, because keeping that arm still enough to keep the phone sharp was quite a challenge. In the end a relatively quick¬†aperture setting and a high ISO did the trick.

Oh and by the way, I didn’t actually take that picture with my phone haha. Getting a half decent shot of the skyline at night handheld with and iPhone 4s is near impossible. And yes I know, I need to update my iPhone¬†;).

Yesterday I hopped on a little plane and flew out to Vernon, BC Canada. My parents in-law live in Vernon and I met up with my wife and kids who were already here. No longer then 30 minutes after arriving at the house my son told me to come take a look out in the back yard. To my wonderful surprise I saw this beautiful creature standing at the bird feeder having a nice little snack from him self haha. I quickly snapped a picture with my phone (insurance) and then bolted for the guest bedroom for my camera. I swapped the lens and went burnning back! Thankfully I was able to cap this shot off before he decided it was time to bounce :).

A Family in the Fog

Last weekend when it was all foggy in Calgary I did a shoot with a nice family. I wasn’t so sure about the foggy weather for such a shoot, but after seeing the photos I really like them because the fog provided a unique backdrop. Unique to Calgary anyhow, since it’s not always foggy around here. The last picture I find just wonderful because the little girl on the left is doing what exactly what a little rascal of a littler girl should be doing in a family picture :P.

All photos shot with a Canon 6D with a 50mm 1.4 & 24-105L

Floating Around in the Fog

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii at 35mm ~ Settings: f/2.8 – 1/400th – ISO 2500

It has been rather foggy around Calgary these days. Yesterday I decided to take a picture of myself on the path in front of my house. My original idea was to shoot a photo of me just standing in the path with my camera and I did that. When reviewing the photos on the cameras LCD I thought the photo could use a little extra zip, and the idea to jump popped into my head. I think the levitating look adds a real fun element to the shot.

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii at 35mm ~ Settings: f/4.5 – 1/125th – ISO 2000

I used a Canon RC-1 remote on a 2 second timer to trigger my camera which was on a tripod behind me. I shot about a dozen of these, because I had to make sure I jumped right at the perfect time to be in the air when the shutter clicked. I also didn’t want my clothes to look like they were flapping around either. At first I was wearing a hoody on while doing this, but it just didn’t look right. It was only after the fact that I noticed my shirt matched my lens haha. Just good luck there.

As for the second shot, since I was clearly taking up the whole path way I had the opportunity to say hello to a few people from the neighbourhood. I snapped a quick shot of this friendly guy and his dog as they walked by. Nothing like getting in people’s way to spark up a little dialog. ;)

I was out the other day shooting photos with my Nikon D300s and an old lens that has kind of a so-so reputation. The lens is a circa 1986 – 87 Nikon AF 70-210mm F4. I personally like the lens, but I have a thing for shooting photos with funny old lenses :).

Anyhow, just as I was enjoying the view of the city, this girl stopped near me and decided to do the same while drinking her coffee. That building behind her is called the “Saddledome” and it is where the local NHL Hockey team (The¬†Calgary Flames) plays.
