Jawny

I met up with an old friend of mine last night and of course I just had to shoot a few photos of the guy. Catching up with your friends is always fun and taking pictures of people is too. Definitely fun times as always with Jawny!

Through The Trees

It’s a pretty good view through the trees right here! You can’t see the river because of the trees, but I’d rather stare at buildings anyhow. πŸ˜‰

Selfie On a Ledge

I was out taking pictures on the weekend and I was setting up for a shot of the city. While I was deciding where to shoot from I noticed this little ledge off the balcony I was standing on. The ledge looked easy enough to get onto so I thought I might as well hop onto it and do a self portrait. At first I was just looking at the camera normal. I had my D800E set to shoot 3 photos and on the 3rd one I just decided to pull my hood up and look at the camera. This is not how I normally am in front of the camera, but it’s good do do something different from time to time. πŸ™‚

His First Real Camera

I gave my 6 year old son Cameron his first real camera today. He had been asking me for one for the past 6 months and he was very clear he wanted one like mine with a proper viewfinder, so no point and shoots would do. I told him I would be keeping my eye out for a good deal on a camera for him and today was the day. Cameron is now the happy owner of a good old Canon 20D! A camera I have a lot of experience with, as I shot one for a very long time back in the 20D days. He loves the camera and I think it will suit him just fine while he dips his toes into the wonderful world of photography.

When I gave Cameron the camera he was super excited and happy! I quickly showed him the basics and he ran out the door to shoot photos. I caught up with him about 45 minutes later and he was still wondering around the block taking pictures. We passed by this tree and he ask me to hold his camera. He shot up the tree, I gave him is camera back and he started taking pictures of this dog that was sitting in the grass. I’d say he’s got the right idea about getting a unique shot. Who knows, we just might have another photographer in the family. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

Oh and by the way, this is in no way an endorsement or anything of that nature to the companies sign I am sitting in front of haha. The sign just kind of matched my shirt, so IΒ sat there.

4 Brands, 1 Photo

I was just doing some example shots to show how the Pentax-A 50mm 1.7 performs on my Fujifilm X-Pro1. I kind of like the picture, so I thought I might as well share it. The camera in the picture is my Sony a7ii with a Canon 16-35mm f2.8 ii attached with a Metabones adapter. It was only the moment I decided to share the photo that I realized I had 4 different camera companies going on here to shoot this one photo haha. Kind of hilarious and kind of weird at the same time. 😜

Banff National Park

I shot this photo while heading up the Gondola in Banff National Park. The view from the Gondola ride is amazing and if you ever find your self in Banff it is definitely worth a look! Even if you’re not crazy about mountains, the views will not disappoint.

Random Beach

This is just some random beach I stopped at while cruising around Hawaii. It was a pretty wicked spot and I kind of wish I had hung out a little longer. Maybe next time! πŸ™‚

Urban Honolulu Night

The city of Honolulu looks amazing at night! The view from the apartment we rented was especially amazing after the sun went down. I kind of wish I lived in a an apartment so I could get a wicked city view like this, but when you got two crazy little boys that love to run out the door every 5 minutes it’s not really ideal. Maybe one day though ;).

1st Day of School

Well my 2 boys are off to school again! (1st grade & 3rd grade). It’s always fun taking the kids to their first day of school. I couldn’t get these guys to stay still for a picture together though! They were too excited to get to their friends. Next year I’ll plan that part a little better haha. Anyhow, it’s exciting times at Stanly Jones Elementary and a good day to reflect on another summers past. πŸ™‚

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 a Nikon 55mm f/2.8 Micro manual focus lens. After my first test shot I knew I was going to need some external light, because the street light that was on in the park was super orange and the grass was a very ugly version of a pumpkin orange. Since I didn’t bring any lighting I just whipped out my trusty iPhone and used the flashlight on there to paint the scene while the 30 exposure was on. I think it all worked out pretty good!

Biking in Edmonton (Video)

Sunburst City

I’m a sucker for a good sunburst and I’ll try toΒ grab one whenever I can. The thing I really love about these pictures is that sunburst is the reflection of the sun off of a pretty cool looking building! If your a city guy (or girl) like me, then that’s what it’s all about ;).

Oh ya, and that dude that’s practicing his karate moves is hilarious! 🀣
