Flames Burning The Canucks

Camera: Canon 6D & 28mm 1.8 ~ Settings: f/14 – 1/125th – ISO 400

If you’re a hockey fan than you probably know the Calgary Flames have made the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs! And if your from Calgary, you know we are playing our arch rivals the Vancouver Canucks in the first round. So to kick things off right around here I had to let it be known how it’s going down. We’ll be burning those bastards up from the first puck drop! ๐Ÿ˜€

Now about the photo. I had my Canon 6D set up on a tripod and triggered the camera with my Canon RC-1 remote. I had another tripod to camera left with a Canon 580EX ii pointing at me. Since I am originally from Vancouver, I had a jersey collecting dust in my closet. I didn’t actually burn the jersey though, for 2 reasons. One, I’m from Vancouver and still like that jersey haha. And 2, it was really windy and even if I could get the jersey to burn the flames wouldn’t have gone straight up and effect wouldn’t be nearly as dramatic. After I did the initial edit of the photo I photoshopped in the flames burning the jersey.

I expect to take a lot of flack from all my Vancouver friends and family over this picture haha. But I’ve been in Calgary for 3 years now and I started backing up this team the day I got here. As soon as that first hockey season started 3 years ago I was a straight up traitorย Calgary Flame. For me it’s all about the home team and this is my home now. GO FLAMES!

Big Head in The City

Calgary has a lot of public art and this massive head is one of my favourite. You can go inside of it, but you cant get one hand or foot onto it to climb with out a security guard running out to tell you there is no climbing! haha. If your ever in Calgary, it’s worth a look ;).

Confused By This Film

I recently got my hands on this old film camera. It is the Pentax Spotmatic F, circa 1973 -76. It’s got a very popular (even today) SMC Takumar 50mm 1.4 lens on it, so I was very excited to use it. When I got home I loaded up some old film I had laying around. After about 3 framesย I noticed when I would advance the film forward it wasn’t as smooth as previous frames. I tried again and it was real bumpy ride. So I opened it up and found my film in a bit of a tangle. I figured (and hoped) it must have been user error.

The next day I headed down to one of the local camera stores here in Calgary and picked up at roll of Kodak Ektar 100 film for around $11. I very carefully loaded it up and started shooting.ย A few days (around 5 frames) into the fun time I was having with this beauty, I once again noticed a little ruff film advance. I shot off a quick shot and tried to advance the film again, this time listening carefully and paying close attention. Something was definitely up! I shot the frame (lens cap on, who cares at this point!). This time when I tried to advance the film it was like scraping a rake across a field of big jagged rocks. It’s over, somethings wrong! I opened up the camera to see my film in heaping tangle.

To say I was upset was an understatement, ok well maybe not quite an understatement, but I was upset! I said to hell with this camera and I’m done with film! Then a few days later I examine the camera while I tare out the film. I advance the film to see if I can figure out the problem. To my surprise I notice the film take up reel is spinning in the opposite direction I thought it did! WHAT? I quickly try loading the film (film I just took out), this time starting off the reel in the proper direction and quickly shoot off a doozen shots! Not one bump in the road!

Looks like my first thoughts on the whole ordeal were right. Just another case of an idoit who can’t load film properly! LOL. I have since un-damned this camera and am back in love with it! I’ll post some pictures from it once I get some more film loaded ๐Ÿ™‚
