Sunset End

I just caught the end of this sunset a few days ago on my way home from work. While I was driving I could see the amazing light shining on the buildings downtown. Unfortunately the traffic was moving slower than I would have liked and I wasn’t in a good area for a  decent shot. …

Kodak Shannon

I shot some photos with my Instagram friend Shannon a few weeks ago and just go the film back last week. I sent the film to a place in Winnipeg Manitoba (more on the place another time) because there is no professional place in Calgary to get film developed. Anyhow, I was shooting Kodak Ektar …

Nikon Legend

Click photo to view in a larger size. So I have decided to take it back to the old school and start shooting some film again. When I was shooting film back in the day I was mostly shooting with a Canon Rebel, not exactly the greatest camera, but it was good for me at …

Flight of The AE-1

I’m sure this idea isn’t new and there are people all over the world tossing their cameras around, but I this particular version was my idea. Location was key for this photo, as the background (even though it’s blurry) would play a big part in the over all feel of the final product. Since its …

My Favourite 3 Cameras

  Although I have been known to shoot other brands of cameras here and there, Canon is my favourite. These 3 cameras in particular are my current favourites. The Cameras are a Canon 5D Mark iii, 1D Mark iii & a 6D. I know it’s kind of silly to have all 3 of these (not …

Lensbaby Sweet 35

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii @ 35mm ~ Settings: f/5.6 – 1/5 – ISO 400 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 …

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 …

Crosswords While Walking

I was walking across the Centre Street Bridge here in Calgary the other day and I saw this guy walking up the bridge doing a crossword puzzle while walking! I put my camera up to my face and kept walking in his direction waiting for him to put his face up to see where he …

Self Portrait Time

I shot this self portrait a few weeks ago for a project I was working that didn’t amount too much. Since I took the picture I thought I’d share it here :). Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 35L ~ Settings f/1.4 – 1/8000th – ISO 100 Thanks for stopping by, Rob

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 …

A Walk in Chinatown

I was in Chinatown the other day here in Calgary and I took a few street shots. I decided to shoot 35mm just to mix things up a little and force my self to get a little closer to my subjects. I definitely prefer 50 over 30, but it’s fun to get a little closer …

Fine Art to a Photographer

I shot this photo a couple years ago and it is still one of my favourite to date. I have it blown up movie poster size and hanging in my living room. The camera your looking into in the photo is one of the original Seagull TLR cameras before they changed their name to “Seagull”. …
