A Photo of Taking a Picture

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L at 22mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 0.5 seconds – ISO 4000 Last night I went out to shoot some photos downtown. After about 4 different locations I ended up here. At first I was just getting some skyline shots with the fence in the foreground, and then the idea to …

Street Meat & Subways

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L at 28mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/100th – ISO 400 When I lived in Toronto, we called these hotdog vendors “Street Meat” haha. I’m not sure what they call them in Edmonton, but I’m sure the Street Meat is just as good :). The dome of windows behind the people …

Dirty Look Down 1st

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 23mm ~ Settings: f/20 – 25 seconds – ISO 200 This is 1st Street, downtown in Calgary. I shot this from a pedestrian over pass. As you can tell from the picture, the window of the over pass was quite dirty! But what are you gonna do? You can’t …

Ice Skating in The City

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 17mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 1/10th – ISO 2500 Last week I went down to the Olympic Plaza ice skating rink downtown here in Calgary. It was a little chilly out and my hands got rather cold while I was shooting these photos. I had gloves with me, but I …

Under the Centre Street Bridge

Sometimes you gotta climb around to the kind of picture you want. Like this one for instance, the tide was low on the river so I decided to climb under the bridge as far over as I could go with out getting wet. I shot a lot of photos this night and this was the very …

The Hastings Building

On my recent trip to Port Townsend, Washington I was most excited to see this particular building in person for myself. I had looked at pictures of it many times online and had fallen in love with it the moment I saw it. I love this type of old Victorian architecture and seeing it in …

Fireworks

There is a party that lasts well over a week that goes on every summer in Calgary called the Calgary Stampede. Every night there is a fireworks display that goes and one night I decided to go check it out. Here are a couple of the shots I took that night :). Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L …

28mm Manual Focus

I shot this photo with an old Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 Close Focus RL Edition lens. The lens is a Nikon Mount and I got a Nikon to EOS adapter from ebay to use it on my Canon bodies. This lens is crazy sharp wide open and at every aperture. I think it goes with out saying …

Calgary, High in The Sky

I took this picture with my drone yesterday. This is a view of Calgary you don’t really see because there are no apartment buildings in the immediate area where I was flying. Kind of a fun picture for locals I guess :). (click on image to view large size) Camera: Phantom 2 Drone ~ Edited in …

The Bow at Night

This shot is of the Bow River that runs through Calgary at night. The bridge in the photo is the colour purple because I shot this photo from anther bridge that nights up at night and was lit purple on this particular night. Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @25mm ~ Settings: 30 seconds – f/18 …

Calgary By The River

The river that runs through Calgary is rather low now and there was a massive area for me to walk out on to get this picture. It was just me and a couple Canadian Geese hanging out shooting photos :). I actually got a picture with those guys in it, but I’ll post that one another day …

Drunk Girl Shakes Up My Pic

Last night I decided to go out and get some night shots of this bridge that is near my house. As I arrived I noticed a few sketchy looking people milling about, but they ended up going on their way, so I set up my tripod and camera. I set my camera to a 30 …
