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 …

In Camera City View

I shot this photo on Friday night from Rotary Park in Calgary. The camera in the picture is my Mamiya 645 1000s with a 80mm f/1.9. I had the camera set up on a tripod and had another tripod set up higher over the pictured camera. I shot this photo with a Sony A7R with …

Minolta City

I was about to toss this old camera in the trash when I I took a look at the mirror after I took the lens off. I thought it looked pretty cool with the little lines and then I though I might be able to get a good photo if I incorporated the mirror of …

DIY Deadcat Mic Windscreen

I made a DIY video on how to make a Deadcat style windscreen out of the tail of a stuffed cat (teddy bear) haha. I did a couple tests and it worked really good! If you care about your video’s audio you might like this video. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Rob

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 …

Music Video

Some of you might remember me mentioning I was going to be shooting a music video for a guy this summer (this guy). I have finally finished it. It was my first crack at music video and I think turned out alright. I didn’t realize how much work it was to get a whole video …

Filmless Fun

My son and I took at walk down to 7 Eleven yesterday evening to grab a couple Slurpees and I had my camera with me. While we were leaving my son Joshua decided he would take his camera with him too :). He shot a lot of photos while we were walking, however his camera …

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 …

The Nikon DF or Nikkormat

With the release of the rumoured retro looking Nikon DF full frame DSLR (16mp) comes some big decisions for people who love the look and feel of the old school film SLR’s of the 60’s & 70’s. For most people, I believe the main decision will be, “Do I feel like spending the $2,750.  price …

Canon 50mm 1.8 vs 1.2

This photo was shot with Canon 5D mark ii & Canon 24-85mm @85mm & f/4.5 I did a little comparison between 2 of my favourite lenses, the Canon 50mm 1.8 mark i & the 50L. With a price differnce of at least $1500, the case one can make to buy the 50L can only be …
