two days ago, my friend Kara and I went photographing around Brickworks and the Don Valley Parkway in toronto. It was getting dark and cold so we didn’t get a chance to venture inside the closed factories but maybe next time. A huge shout out to my friend Braeden Vanrooy for lending me his sigma 10-22, for which this shot was taken with. Check his site out.
this is only a screencap of a video i made for class. it’s a short video and we had to make a story around an object that had personal value to us.
let me know what you think!
i gave everything i have, everything i ever had.
success comes with a price, and i won the lottery.
dreams come true…if only i slept more often.
like a son watching his father, i studied my idols
and i did the same things they once had. confidence
comes with the abandonment of fear.
success comes with a price…things you can’t buy back.
i can’t find my way out, and the sound of silence is deafening.
does this make me a man? will my father finally be proud of me?
maybe now he won’t forget.
this is what i have, all that i have left.
and i pray it won’t be fleeting away as quickly as it came.
i wish i could freeze time.
this is my first try with infrared on my new camera, and i must say it is a lot harder than my sony f828. each shot i had to manually focus, then add my hoya r72 infrared filter to the lens of my camera on a tripod, then expose for about 25 seconds. winter isn’t a very good time for infrared because of the lack of nice vegetation but i thought i’d experiment anyways.
this one relates to the last shot. i thought i’d document mikes shots from a differernt perspective. somehow he climbed down into the foot of the falls and then with hip-weights, got right into the stream to take some photos. i’m sure he’ll have some up on his website eventually www.msicoli.com.
here is a man walking down a snow-coated path on the outskirts of york university during sunset around 5pm. on a special note, I am happy to say that this is the 100th consecutive image i’ve posted to this blog. I’ve learned a great deal my first 100 images, i can’t wait to see what the next 100 bring.
i’m attempting to get better at photographing strangers. this is a shot of 3 guys from york university just hanging out. i really liked the framing of the wall on the third, to frame the shot. i didn’t feel that awkward, but I did not have a zoom lens so I was pretty close to him (50mm lens), which made the situation a little harder. thoughts?
