These are a couple of pictures I took last summer of my father in-law during his biking part in the Penticton, BC triathlon. If it was me, I’d be cruising on in to the finish line about 10 hours after the race ended lol. Big up to everyone that can do these crazy races!

Please Forgive My Photo & Me

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 70-300mm IS DO @ 70mm ~ Settings: f/8 – 1/125th – ISO 1250

If this photo had a nice clear sky behind it, it would be 10 times better. Normally I would just scrap the photo and go back another day when it was nicer out. However! Getting this particular angle of the city was not easy and to be honest a little sketchy haha. I was driving by the river bellow and noticed some townhouses through the trees, so I went looking for them. When I got out of my car and started walking around I figured out that the “townhouses” I saw was actually some kind of nunnery. I walked up the driveway and stood there to see if I could get a shot from there, but there was no way. I walked further in and saw a gate that led to some grass and fence over looking a cliff. Since no one seemed to mind me standing around the parking lot I figured they wouldn’t mind if I walked on the lawn and grabbed a few quick shots haha. So in true trespasser (not something I ever do) fashion I walked on the law, lifted my camera over the fence and branches and shot this photo. In hindsight I wish I would have just knocked on the door and asked if it was ok, because that would have been the right thing to do. In fact, I think I will go back on a nice day and do just that. I think I’ll ask for forgiveness while I’m at it ;).

Mild Winter Moment

I was downtown yesterday meeting a guy about thing. I had my camera with me so I grabbed a couple quick shots. The weather in Calgary this winter has been pretty good lately. As you can see from the pictures it’s not exactly what comes to mind when one thinks of winter in the city. It was 48 degrees (9C) in Calgary yesterday and it looks to be staying around that mark for the next little while. That is good photography weather and I plan on taking advantage of it :).

This is a look down Front Street in beautiful Penticton, BC Canada. Walking down this street gives a feeling of walking through a post card, everything is almost perfect. Brick buildings in odd shapes always do it for me and this particular Sassy corner did not disappoint.

This picture is an insane 3 years old. I can’t even believe that. Time is just FLYING! This is one of my favourite pictures of my son Joshua and I and I never posted it here. I had the camera set up on a tripod at the end of the bridge and had it set on a 10 second timer. The bridge we are on was destroyed in during the 2013 flood. I’m not sure if they got a new bridge up there yet or not, I’ll take a look next time I’m in that neighbourhood.

Canon 5D mark iii & Lensbaby Sweet 35

This is one crazy lens! I had been aware of Lensbaby for a long time now, but I never had the opportunity to use one. Then one day last week, I walked into a random thrift store and I saw this lens sitting in a glass case. I ask to check it out to see if the lens was in good working order. I put the Lensbaby on my 5D mark iii and it worked like a dream. The price tag said $75, but since it was thrift store I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask if they could cut me a little slack on the price, lucky for me they were cool with that and I got the lens for a measly $50! (retail price $380 US dollars). Score one for the R-O-B! haha ;).

These are just a couple of test shots I have taken with the lens so far. The lens is full manual focus and it kind of spins around on a little ball head similar to a tripod head. The bokeh is pretty wicked on it, but getting your focus on point can be a challenge (just as with any manual focus lens). I’ll let this lens bounce around in my bag for the next few months and see if I can get any cool pictures with it. We’ll see if Lensbaby can earn a permanent spot in my collection.

Scattered Sky

Camera: Canon 16-35L @ 35mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1.3 seconds – ISO 800

Yesterday when I was on my way home I noticed the sky looked a little scattered. I thought it was worth stopping to grab a quick picture, so I did just that. I didn’t feel like dragging out my tripod and setting it up, because I was afraid the sun would completely go down and I’d lose all the colour in the sky while doing it. So I just place my camera on a ledge and used one of my fingers under one side to level it off and let the shutter go. Who needs Manfrotto when you got ManPhoto tripod ;).

Note: I don’t really recommend this technique for long exposures, if you got the time just use your tripod.

A Girl I Know

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 135L ~ Settings: f/2 – 1/80th – ISO 3200

I shot this photo 2 years ago, almost to the day! I was randomly on my old, OLD computer yesterday and decided to take a look around my old photos. I stumbled upon this shot I took of a lovely girl named Violet. I shot this for part of my People of Calgary project and ended up using a different shot for that. I thought this was a nice picture too, so I figured I might as well post it here.

Ice Skating in The City

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 17mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 1/10th – ISO 2500

Last week I went down to the Olympic Plaza ice skating rink downtown here in Calgary. It was a little chilly out and my hands got rather cold while I was shooting these photos. I had gloves with me, but I they weren’t really doing the trick. For the first picture I had to stand there with my hand over the shutter button waiting for the right gust of wind so I could capture the flags blowing. Of course this plan of action didn’t exactly help my cold hand situation haha. I didn’t get the flag exactly how I wanted, but it was close enough for the weather conditions. ;)

Camera – iPhone 4s

Last weekend I was at my local Starbucks enjoying a coffee and testing out a new photo editing app (Pixelmator, verdict is still out). Once my editing time was up / coffee was done, I started walking home. When I got to the top of the hill I stopped to take in the sunset that was falling behind the city. Naturally I had a camera with me, so I pulled it out and put on my Nikon 100mm f2.8 AIS (manual focus) lens and shot this photo. I love this view of the city and I think this shot reflects the beauty of this vantage point.

Jumping Around

I have been spending a lot of time up at the ski hill these days (snowboarding). While I was up there on Christmas eve day I set my self up by a kicker and shot some photos of people jumping. I shot all photos with a Canon 5D mark iii & 24-105mm f/4 IS. I shot in aperture priority at f/11 & ISO 800, the shutter was hovering around the 1/1600th range.
