Drop The Bass

I was out kicking around the streets of Calgary last weekend shooting some photos with a friend of mine. I spotted this guy from across the street and knew I had to get a shot of him. He was drop’n the bass on some funky tunes and was real cool about a picture. Love people …

Bench with a View

This guy’s looking back at my last post like, “Damn, wish I was there right about now!” 😅 I was shooting this location with a friend of mine and I got him to hop on the bench and take a look around for me. This location as such a great view, but I though the picture would …

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 :). …

Run For It!

As you may know from my last post I was out on a little country drive on Friday. While I was driving I noticed a group of Elk & Deers on the side of the road up a hill, however they were to far to get a good picture, since the longest focal length lens …

The Streets Are Watching

Last weekend and friend of mine and I went to Banff Alberta, Canada to shoot some photos. There was a block party going on and we were burning around there taking pictures. I did a lot of street photography that day and this is my favourite picture from the day. Camera: Canon 5D mark iii …

Studio Time with Mr. Blackman

A couple of days ago I was sitting in my office editing photos when I got a text message that read “Hey Rob, you still in Calgary?” I quickly replied with a “Yes” and “Who is this?” haha. To my delighted surprise it was my old buddy from Toronto Damian aka Mr. Blackman. Damian said …

When A Bird Hits Your Window

Like I said last week, I’m mot much of a bird photographer. However when a bird comes flying into your living room window full speed ahead, you get your bird photographer hat on in a hurry! As was the case of this little guy. I was just changing the lens on my camera to go …

Let’s Get Personal

Camera: Samsung NX100 with Canon FD 50mm 1.4 – Setting: 1/800th // f1.4 // ISO 100 I suppose this will be a rather personal post, as there is really no other reason I could think to post this picture haha. This is the coffee cup I start almost all of my mornings with. It’s a …

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 …
