A Seat By The Pond

This spot is a particular favourite of mine in Calgary. The pond is in Princes Island Park and is a nice place to grab a seat and relax. I think theses 2 people would agree that this is the place to be :). Camera: Canon 6D & 28mm 1.8 ~ Settings f/9 – 6 seconds …

Canon 35L vs 28mm 1.8

Last night I decided to do a quick little “battle of the bokeh” type test with the Canon 35mm 1.4 L series lens & the 28mm 1.8 prime. Given the prices difference in these lenses (35L – $1,479.00 vs 28mm $509.00) I can’t say I’d recommend springing for the L, unless your eyes can’t see anything else …

28mm Manual Focus

I shot this photo with an old Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 Close Focus RL Edition lens. The lens is a Nikon Mount and I got a Nikon to EOS adapter from ebay to use it on my Canon bodies. This lens is crazy sharp wide open and at every aperture. I think it goes with out saying …

Canon 28mm f/1.8 Video Review

I haven’t made a YouTube video for a while so I thought I’d make a quick review about the Canon 28mm f/1.8 prime. It’s a lens I enjoy using, so I thought I’d put my 2 cents on the lens out there :). Here is another random shot I took while making this video :). …

People On The Peace Bridge

On Saturday I decided to head back to the Peace Bridge. This time I wanted to shoot something a little wider, so I brought my 6D & 28mm 1.8. It was a nice day in Calgary, so there was lots of people around and no shortage of photo ops. Here are a few of the …

Fun at Canon Image Square

On Saturday a friend of mine and I met up downtown for a street photography mission. We started walking up 8th Avenue shooting random photos of people walking by and interesting things we saw. As we were walking along something very interesting caught my eye, it was the Canon Image Square. I had heard about …

A Walk With These Boys

Yesterday afternoon my 2 sons and I decided to take a little walk around the neighbourhood and get a bite to eat. Naturally I brought my camera along and snapped a few shots here and there. Here are some of the ones I like best :). All of these pictures were shot with a Canon …

Friendly Staff

Not too long ago I found my self down at local pub watching the Calgary Flames (NHL Hockey) game with my cousin. We watched the game, had a few drinks and eventually got to chatting with some of the staff. This friendly waitress was nice enough to let me take her picture. Shooting people at …

Canon 28mm f/1.8

I picked up a new lens recently that I had been thinking about getting for quite sometime. I was torn between the Canon 28mm f/1.8 & the Sigma version. I decided to go with the Canon version because of the size and weight (smaller & lighter). The lens performs decent wide open as you can …
