Instagram vs WordPress

I keep falling off my blogging regimen these days and I put a lot of the blame on Instagram! I think I have wrote about this before, but it just rings so true it is hard to avoid. I wonder how many other people feel this way? For me, I get a lot more interaction …

Well

I was out shooting some photos one night with a friend of mine and I was getting pretty board of the pictures I was taking. I thought I’d just hop in some of the shots to shake things up. 🙂 Oh and by the way, this is in no way an endorsement or anything of …

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 …

Street Shooting The Pearl

I found myself walking down the street in the Pearl District of Portland and did a little street shooting. The color of this building really stood out to me so I held down the corner for a couple of minutes so I could get a person in my shot. This cool looking girl came around …

Vacation in Mexico

I just spent a week in Mexico with my family. My wife and two children arrived in Cancun a day before the rest of the family arrived. So we spend a night in a hotel in what seemed to be a little more local (less touristy) part of the city. The next day when other …

1000th Instagram Post!

I hit my 1000th post on Instagram yesterday! I though I’d do something a little fun for that post and put this picture together. I shot the photo with my Sony A7ii & 24-70mm sitting on a railing on a 10 second, 5 shot sequence timer. I sent the picture straight to my phone and …

A Photo of Taking a Picture

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L at 22mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 0.5 seconds – ISO 4000 Last night I went out to shoot some photos downtown. After about 4 different locations I ended up here. At first I was just getting some skyline shots with the fence in the foreground, and then the idea to …

Oh Deer Vernon

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f4 IS at 200mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 1/500th – ISO 320 Yesterday I hopped on a little plane and flew out to Vernon, BC Canada. My parents in-law live in Vernon and I met up with my wife and kids who were already here. No longer then 30 minutes …

Ski Hill Selfie

I was up at the ski hill today and snapped this quick selfie with my phone (iPhone 4s). I thought the picture looked kind of cool, so I thought I’d share it here :). I did a quick edit with the Snapseed app on the picture. Thanks for stopping by, Rob    

Flames vs Rangers

Last night I went to the hockey game (as I often do). The Calgary Flames were hosting the New York Rangers and this time I decided I’d try to bring a camera along. I didn’t want to bring a proper DSLR with a big white lens that screams “HEY LOOK AT ME! I’M TAKING PICTURES!” lol. …

Style in Edmonton

They got style in Edmonton! Well, maybe not that dude with the backpack falling off of him (sorry guy) haha, but that girl does! 😉 Camera: Canon 6D & 50mm 1.4 ~ Settings f/1.4 – 1/4000th – ISO 1000 Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Peace on the Peace Bridge

If you like a futuristic bridge, then the Peace Bridge here in Calgary, Canada is the one for you! I shot these photos with a fisheye lens. When I was getting the one of the guy taking a picture of the girl tossing up the “Peace” sign, I almost ran right into them because I …
