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. πŸ˜‰

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Side Note: If anyone is wondering, in the picture I’m holding a Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/2.8 IS in my hand.

  1. he has that, “oh Hi Rob, just jumping around again?” look on his face. LOL! I love both of these photos. You always amaze me with the photos you take on a timer. So fantastic!

  2. It has been foggy Rob. Yesterday’s fog was made up of icy crystals, my face and hair became damp immediately when I stepped out. Love your jumping photo Rob – very cool. ❀

  3. Nice Rob, it does look like you’re floating and not just jumping, and I like how the lens matches your shirt. I don’t like camera straps either, they just don’t work well when you have a big L lens attached.

  4. Epic photos there. I’m a sucker for the fog. Thought about you Rob as I was out with a friend for a few days far north of Spokane, WA at a cabin. We found some really cool abandoned settlements, old boxcars with cool graffiti, and climbed around them with our cameras. Geeked out making sculptures out of volcanic rock and rusted-out steel plates and railroad spikes, that kind of thing. Good times. Cheers, – Bill
