Straight Out of Camera Strangers

I am the proud new owner of the Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 lens! I just got it yesterday and I had to go test it out, but I needed some people to take pictures of. I zipped over to Crescent Road in Calgary and met some strangers who didn’t mind having their picture taken. The featured picture is of Jesis, he was shooting a time lapse so I went over and started talking to him and after some Instagraming I got a picture of him. I also met this really friendly girl who was taking pictures of the skyline with her phone. We go to talking and we made a deal that I’d take some pictures of her with her phone and then I’d take some with my camera haha. Then the black and white picture, well these guys just came up to me lol. These guys were also out taking pictures and just came over to see what kind of pictures I was getting. Of course, I had to get a shot these kindred spirits. The night was fun and I got to meet some really cool people, always bonus!

All the pictures are straight out of the camera with no edits. Except for the B&W and the city shot. I just wanted to see how the color Fuji files would turn out in a black and white conversation. And the city shot just needed a touch of contrast a tiny pull back on the highlights. 

The sun was in full sunset mode casting a very warm/pinkish light here↖︎.

Ramah – Sudan to Calgary

More People of Calgary Action!

The People of Calgary

I met this fellow on a popular pathway by the river near Edwothy Park. I had just arrived, got my stuff ready and he was the first person to walk in my direction. While he was walking towards me I noticed he was wearing headphones, so my first thought was to just let him pass by, but I made the split second decision to just walk over to him, get his attention and then tell him what I was up to. Right when I stopped him and he took off his head phones I could tell he was a nice guy. I told him what was up and he happily agreed to participate. Here is what Ramah had to say.

Friendly Squirrels

There are some baby squirrels that live a tree in front of our house and they are super friendly. The other day we noticed our neighbour feeding the babies by hand, so my son Joshua went to go check it out. Amazingly the squirrels were extremely friendly and had no problem eating right out of his hand. Pretty cool :).

Happy Lady

Here’s another street shot of a very friendly old lady that was walking by me one day. She was walking down the street really slowly and I snapped a quick picture of her walking by, when she noticed I took her picture she gave me a big smile, so I quickly said “One more!” She gave me this big smile, I took the shot and we kept walking our own ways. I love these quick interactions with people on the streets :).
