Box Speed vs Overexposure

I wanted to see how much of a difference there was when overexposing Kodak Gold 200 35mm film. So I made a video out of it. I was testing the difference between shooting at box speed (ISO 200) and ISO 100. The camera I was using in the video is a Canon EOS 3 & …

Looking at Buildings

I went for a little walk the other day to see if I could catch a sunset. Sadly the sunset didn’t really materialize. It was still nice to get out for a walk and shot a bunch a photos, but nothing I was too excited about. This was the last picture I took. I was …

I Went for the Sky

I was sitting at my house doing some work on my computer. I have my computer set up near a window so I can see what’s happening in the sky. This window is facing west, so when I see a sunset coming on I usually know. Now it’s not always a sure thing, sometimes it …

December Sunset

I caught a little sunset action yesterday evening here in Kelowna. When I left my house I didn’t even have an idea of where I was even going. I just started driving down my street. I was about to turn at an intersection when the hill cough my eye. The sun was just about to …

Pictures of Strangers (video)

When I was in Calgary in September I wondered around the city taking pictures of strangers. I wanted to shoot some photos of people with my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera, but I didn’t have any models. I figured I might as well just go walk up to people on the street ask them …

This Block

This block is one of my favourite blocks in the city and it has been since before the library(the modern white building in the back of the scene) opened. To camera left there used to be this crazy old gas station that looked like it hadn’t changed in about 60 years haha, it was amazing. …

Life in the East Village

There is a lot more life in the East Village of Calgary then there was a year ago. While I was living in Calgary there was always a decent amount of action in the neighbourhood, but it has got a lot more lively since I moved. A few new buildings finished up and some new …

East Village Path Views

I used to live across the bridge from the East Village in Calgary, so I have always spent a lot of time in the area. I’ve only been gone a year, but some new buildings have sprung up here and there since I’ve been gone. I like big buildings and I think they lend to …

Flashback YYC

Here’s an old Calgary picture that never made it out the gate. I think the plan was to go back when that fence was down, but then I ended up moving haha. Maybe when I’m back in Calgary this summer I’ll actually go and re-do this shot. I guess it depends on what it looks …

A Touch Darker in Portland

Street photography in Portland is great! The city is dense enough to have busy streets and the streets are beautiful. This is the perfect combination for getting good street shots, at least that’s what I think. I was just playing around in Lightroom last night editing some old photos. If you read this blog you …

Draw Me In City

I was taking a look through some of my Honolulu photos and came across this one. I was surprised to see I hadn’t shared this one before. This is my favourite type of picture and I could stare at this one for a long time, so I cant imagine why I didn’t get this one …
