Olympus mju-1 Film Camera Review

I recently got my hands and a Olympus mju-1 35mm film camera. I ran a roll of Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 through it and did a review of the camera. I got a sunset and did a little street photography in my neighbourhood in Kelowna BC, Canada. Even if your not into film photography, I …

Girls of the Night

I was just out for a little walk with my dog Juneau. Obviously I had my camera with me. Ya never know what kind of pictures might jump out at you. We were walking down the street when this girl passed by us. With all of the lights in front of us I though it …

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 & …

A Night on the Beach

This photo is a few years old by now. I shot it one night while I was walking around the beaches of Cancún, Mexico. I was staying in the hotel in the middle of the picture. I just grabbed my camera and tripod and started walking down the beach looking for a shot. On this …

Waterfall at Fintry

This waterfall at Fintry Provincial Park is pretty awesome. There are lots of good views of this water fall, but I have a feeling the best place to get a shot of the waterfall is probably some were near the bottom. Sadly I don’t know if there is an easy rout to get there, or …

Floating Leaf

Just another leaf picture from my last video haha. Not exactly an exciting picture I know, but it does have a calming quality to it. When I shot this photo it was honestly on a whim. I just happened to see it floating there while I was filming some b-roll for my last youtube video …

Test Leaves

These are just a couple of the test shots from the youtube video I posted yesterday. I just love the colour of these leaves so much I figured I’d might as well post them. If you didn’t see that video I’ll post it again at the bottom of this post. Camera: Sony a7R & Nikkor-H …

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. …

Unassuming in Puerto Vallarta

This house on the corner looks so unassuming on the outside, but I bet it’s amazing on the inside. The house itself looks pretty big and has multiple terraces with what looks to be a nice little third (or forth floor, depending on what street your looking from) floor stand alone room or studio. Whatever …

What does it take to scratch a lens?

Ever wonder just how much abuse a camera lens can take before scratches will start to show up? I use UV filters, mainly for protection and I was wondering this exact question so I decided to put a lens to the test. I tried “cleaning” the lens with a few different things. I shook the …

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 …
