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↖︎.

Fun at Canon Image Square

On Saturday a friend of mine and I met up downtown for a street photography mission. We started walking up 8th Avenue shooting random photos of people walking by and interesting things we saw. As we were walking along something very interesting caught my eye, it was the Canon Image Square. I had heard about this place and had been meaning to go check it out. It looks like Canon only camera store, but they don’t sell anything! They got every lens and camera Canon makes and you can try them all out! They also have a little studio space you can rent out.

One of the fun things they have is all these little mini world scenes set up for you to test out the cameras and lenses. At first I was just using my own Canon 5D mark iii & 50mm 1.4 & 28mm 1.8, but then I decided to give their 8-15mm Fisheye a go, WHOA! What fun little lens. Once I got that on I was burning around shooting up a storm as fast as I could since I knew my friend wanted to get back to the streets. I think we’ll head back again when we got more time, because I could spend hours in that place and I’m sure I will! haha. Anyhow, if you live in or around Calgary and your interested in photography this place is a MUST! It’s at 545 8th Avenue SW in the city. If you make it there I hope you had as much fun as I did! 😉
