Nelson Street Scene

I have always liked street scenes like this. When I look at pictures like this I always wonder things like “Where are those people going? I wonder where they are now?” I like to see life in the streets of whatever city picture I’m taking, it makes the pictures interesting to me. Of course this …

Annie in the Alley

I always love looking down this alley because of the eclectic collection of painting in this one. This is actually down the same alley as the barber shop in the pervious post. This Annie painting always stands out to me though. If your walking by the Annie just kind of catches your eye. I’m assuming …

Barber Shop in The Alley

I’ve never got a hair cut while in Nelson, so I cant say if this barber shop is any good or not. But I will say that if I did need a hair cut and I was in Nelson, this is the place I would go without question. There is something about entering the shop …

Minolta in Nelson Part 2

I uploaded the second part of my Minolta 800si / Nelson BC video yesterday. In the video I walked around a couple of my favourite parts of town and shot some photos on Kodak Gold 200 35mm film. I’m happy with how this video turned out, so I think it’s worth a watch. The picture …

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 …

Nikon Nikkor-H 85mm 1.8

I recently got my hands on a Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 prime lens. Nikon released this version of the lens in 1964, so it’s definitely got some vintage qualities to it. I love the old look of the lens and it produces good photos. The lens isn’t perfect, but for the low price you’d pay for …

She was walking

It was an average fall day in Calgary and she was walking down the street through the East Village of Calgary. I too was walking down the street, however I was on a mission to find people who would let me take their picture. Just moments before I had shot another photo of a guy …

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 …

Pelican Case Alternative

I bought this Pelican style case for my Pentax 6×7. I never thought I’d ever want to use a case like this for a camera. But when I thought about traveling with my 6×7 the idea of it banging around in the back of a car with a bunch of other suitcases in just a …

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 …

More Vlogging

So I decided I am going to try and make more videos this year. I don’t know how many as of right now, but the plan is just to make them till I dont want to anymore. I love making videos, but they are so time consuming at every step. We’ll see how long it …

Nike Destroyer Hike

So my family and I went for a wicked hike just outside of Puerto Vallarta. I shot a little video along the way and thought it was worth sharing here. This is the first video I really used my DJI Osmo gimbal in and I am very happy with the results. I think I’m going …
