A Downtown View

I shot this one from Tom Campbell Park by my house in Calgary. I don’t live to far from this place and on my way home one night last summer I decided to stop by and shoot a photo with my 300mm. Earlier in the night I was out with a friend of mine shooting …

No Option to Zoom

I love taking pictures of the city at night. When I went to shoot photos on this night I took only one lens, my Canon 300mm f/2.8. Sometimes I’ll leave the house with only one lens, because I find it forces me into photos I might not otherwise shoot. This shot is pretty tight in …

Secluded Peace

Taking pictures of a city a night has a special kind of magic to it. I find this especially true when you are in a dark and secluded place like I was for this shot. My location was completely quiet and I was very much alone. Peaceful, relaxing and exciting all at the same time. I …

Summer Night Selfie

Not a proper selfie, but I did take this picture of myself :). I had been out shooting all night and thought before I packed it in I would jump in on a shot. To get the focus right, I propped my iPhone up on the 2X Extender I had with me with the “notes” …

Lighting

Nature is awesome! Right before I took this picture I actually had my camera pointed in the opposite direction. I was shooting some photos of the Calgary skyline when I noticed some flashing going on behind me. Excited at the prospect of getting a lighting bolt picture I spun my camera around and started snapping. …

Pieces to the Puzzle

This picture is kind of cool because of all the action going on. At first glance you might not even notice, but there really is a lot happening. First off and most importantly, the couple walking across the bridge. Then of course the people on the boat and the other people about to launch their boat. …

Apartment with a View

I shot this photo on Saturday night. At first I thought I was going to shoot at a locationmuch farther from the city, but by the time my friend who was going me showed up at my house we didn’t have enough time to get any farther out of the town. Since I only brought this …

Rocky City Sunset

Yesterday evening, straight after dinner I raced out of my house to a predetermined location. When I got in my car the sun was starting to set and I worried I had waited to long to leave. By the time I got to the location the sky had not yet turned colourful. This was good, …

Run Over The Skipping Stone

I went out and shot some photos last night with a friend of mine (guy ruining my picture at the bottom of the frame haha). We walked around St. Patrick’s Island here in Calgary looking for some good shots with the city in the background. I took only two lenses with me, my 300mm 2.8 & …

Flying Under Moonlight

Yesterday evening I caught this WestJet flight flying under the moonlight. I waited around trying to get another shot of a jet flying right in front of the moon. I came close as you can see in the 2nd picture, however the shot was not meant to be at that moment. Next time! ;). Both photos …
