A Friends Camera

I was out shooting the skyline with a friend of mine over the weekend when this idea popped into my head. At first I shot this photo at f4 and slowly made my way to f14. At f4 you couldn’t tell what was in front of the camera, but here in this shot I think …

Hipster Camera on The Hip

I had the idea for this shot for one reason, to show off the cool looking Canon A-1. I think the A1 looks extra cool with the grip attached to it, so I was thinking of how I could get a good picture with the camera being the main focal point and not just have …

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 …

The Look

I was downtown not to long ago and I saw this guy shooting some video of a sign. I walked over and took a picture of him, then he noticed I was beside him pointing a camera at him and when he looked at me he had this hilarious look on his face! LOL. It …

Canon A-1

I was bored the other night so I decided to do a little product style photography. This old A-1 is sitting on my desk in my office/basement studio, so I just grabbed it and took this picture. For lighting I had 2 Canon 550EX Speedlites shot through umbrellas and one LED light pointing at the lens …

Skyline Camera Phone

I shot a photo of the Calgary skyline this summer from the East Village. While I was there I took my phone out shoot a Instagram picture. While taking that picture if thought a picture of my phone taking that picture might be cool haha. I’m a big fan of the BOKEH!, so I rather like …

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 …

JUMP!

Today felt like a good day to shoot a little off camera flash. My son was outside playing with some of his friends so I decided to get them to do some jumps for me :). I set up 3 flashes, one 580EX ii as my main, a 550EX on the side and another 550EX …

Confused By This Film

I recently got my hands on this old film camera. It is the Pentax Spotmatic F, circa 1973 -76. It’s got a very popular (even today) SMC Takumar 50mm 1.4 lens on it, so I was very excited to use it. When I got home I loaded up some old film I had laying around. …

Self Portrait

The mood to shoot a photo struck me this evening, but I had no one to shoot. So I decided I would shoot a self portrait. For this shot I used a Canon 5D mark iii & 50L with one flash set up to camera left. The flash was a Canon 550EX Speedlite shot through …

Canon FD Lens to Samsung NX Converter

I have a Samsung NX100 mirrorless camera that takes really great pictures, especially of people. I also own some great old 70’s era Canon FD manual focus lenses from the film days. So I bought a FD to NX converter to use my Canon FD lenses on my NX100. The converter came in the mail today …
