Floating Leaf

Just another leaf picture from my last video haha. Not exactly an exciting picture I know, but it does have a calming quality to it. When I shot this photo it was honestly on a whim. I just happened to see it floating there while I was filming some b-roll for my last youtube video …

Nikon Nikkor-H 85mm 1.8

I recently got my hands on a Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 prime lens. Nikon released this version of the lens in 1964, so it’s definitely got some vintage qualities to it. I love the old look of the lens and it produces good photos. The lens isn’t perfect, but for the low price you’d pay for …

Stranger on the Bridge

I met Abel at the Peace Bridge in Calgary. We were both out shooting photos. Abel was shooting photos of the bridge and I was shooting photos of people at the bridge. I walked up to Abel and asked him if I could take his picture and he was totally down with it. I honestly …

Pictures of Strangers (video)

When I was in Calgary in September I wondered around the city taking pictures of strangers. I wanted to shoot some photos of people with my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera, but I didn’t have any models. I figured I might as well just go walk up to people on the street ask them …

Pelican Case Alternative

I bought this Pelican style case for my Pentax 6×7. I never thought I’d ever want to use a case like this for a camera. But when I thought about traveling with my 6×7 the idea of it banging around in the back of a car with a bunch of other suitcases in just a …

What does it take to scratch a lens?

Ever wonder just how much abuse a camera lens can take before scratches will start to show up? I use UV filters, mainly for protection and I was wondering this exact question so I decided to put a lens to the test. I tried “cleaning” the lens with a few different things. I shook the …

Nike Destroyer Hike

So my family and I went for a wicked hike just outside of Puerto Vallarta. I shot a little video along the way and thought it was worth sharing here. This is the first video I really used my DJI Osmo gimbal in and I am very happy with the results. I think I’m going …

Off to Puerto Vallarta Mexico

I am happy to report that I am posting this from beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico right now! We arrived here a couple days ago and have been loving the warm weather. All the winter back home in Calgary was getting a little old. It’s a travel day for the video, but I’ll be posting more …

Portland Vlogs

I took a trip down to Portland last weekend and shot a little video of my trip. I met up with an old friend of mine from Vancouver and my brother in-law. If I was on my own I probably would have daily vlogged the trip, but when your with friends you can’t just be …

DIY Deadcat Mic Windscreen

I made a DIY video on how to make a Deadcat style windscreen out of the tail of a stuffed cat (teddy bear) haha. I did a couple tests and it worked really good! If you care about your video’s audio you might like this video. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Rob
