Another photo taken on a bike ride. This was on one of my typical routes. I just so happened to come across during a perfect sunset.

5 photo composite.

Strobist info: Canon 580EX with the foldable softbox the lumiquest LTP to the left of the frame and slightly behind and a Canon 550EX fired bare a few times in for the photo composite to enhance the lens in the photo.

Sunset Divide (136/365)

Alright so another set of 4x5 film went to hell today. I tried to do another macro and that failed pretty badly. I need a more sturdy tripod or a remote shutter.

So this is another photo instead of a 4x5 macro. I got this on my bike ride today. Loved the streaking clouds and I’m really enjoying my Nex3 now.

The camera is just a good combo of size and power. I always end up defaulting to that when I don’t know what to bring because it’s so small but offers a nice sensor plus I have tons of lens adapters.

Camera: Sony Nex3 with a 35mm f3.5 (@F11)

My Cameras (57/365) on Flickr.

My Cameras (57/365)

So I decided to do any other photo compilation. This time with almost ALL the cameras I own, there were a few that I didn’t include because they were broken, or duplicates. Also I couldn’t figure out where they all were. For example I had a nashika 3D camera somewhere. Don’t know where it is now. I also had another polaroid 600 type camera. Dunno where that is either. Anyway I tried to mix it up by changing clothes every shot. And yes that last shot with the holga is me with no pants because DAMNNIT it was the LAST shot ok! Also you’ll notice a white spot where another photo should be. By the time I noticed I only had 43 photos rather than 44 it was past 12:00 so if I took another and included it I would be cheating. Which is not cool. All these photos were taken on the 26th of Feb in 2012.

Anyways I’m going to try to list out the cameras in the photo see if you can spot them!

Camera: Canon 5D mark II with 50mm F1.2 (@F1.8) I didn’t shoot wide open because ITS REALLY HARD to get things in focus at 1.2 when your shooting blind with a remote. For the photo I did of the 5D mark II I replaced the camera with the samsung EX1 (because it was getting late and I was REALLY tired)

It’s like a fine wine. (5/365)

Choosing a 50mm to use is like choosing a wine to have. That being said I don’t really know anything about wines, except that when I drink one I go all red and flustered looking.

I always like shots of gear. Expect to see a good chunk of those in this 365.

So what 50mm lenses are down there? Let’s see.

Canon 50mm F1.2L EF Nikon 50mm F1.2 Cosina 50mm F1.8 Pentax Super Takumar 50mm F1.4 Canon 50mm F1.8 FD

Anyways onward to the Strobist data.

Ok so I cheated. I used 1 light and combined 10 shots. I lit it all around at about 2 feet away with a Canon 430EX (at 1/16th power) using a softbox (lumiquest LTP). So it’s a composite. But if it were a single shot it’d be 10 sources all around the wine rack.

The camera used was a Canon 5D mark II with a Tamron 28mm F2.5 Adaptall II (at F8).

Cheers

Down town toronto.

23/10/2011

A photo of the protest.

It appeared to have started on dundas square and had hundreds of protesters out on the streets. It was one of the smaller protests that have been happening (smaller and less well covered than the Occupy protests).

I was out in toronto looking to buy a used Large format camera (that didn’t happen the seller neglected to tell me it was broken)

Anyways it was refreshing to be able to take photos and be completely ignored. Usually even with my M8 I get glancing looks but that day I was carrying a Sony Nex 3 (in hot red no less) with a dinky pentax auto 110 50mm f2.8 lens on it (A lens which covers the full 1.5x cropped frame). I literally walked in the middle of the protest crowd and started snapping photos and this is one of my favourites of the day.

Cheers

A clown I didn’t recognise in downtown Toronto. So I took his photo. This was happening all of 10 feet from a huge protest.
