ive posted quite a few images of this place. i take it from the same spot at the edge of a dock, i focus on the sun in the same location. the only thing that changes is time. looking back at all these photos in the summer and their wonderful sunsets and colour makes me so excited for t-shirt weather…
i remember shooting this almost 3 years ago with my sony f828. and i remember trying to light the reeds with my little on-board flash like i see in all the magazines. i have about 10 shots with the flash just lighting the front few feet before i got the clue i couldn’t achieve their effect without big lighting equipment.i still like this shot, even though it was shot in JPG so it was tough to properly level it.
this one is in relation to a post 3-4 days ago about a presentation i did on www.georgesrousse.com. I was asked to emulate his style, so here was another version i did at TEL at york university in toronto.
yesterday i had to do a presentation of my research on a photographer. i chose george rousse. this guy is a master of tricking the eye, with awesome perspectives and creating shapes. I had to emulate his style in a photograph. so here it is. the shapes are done in photoshop while rousse would paint perspective shapes to get the same effect but in a much more genuine and cool way. honestly, his work is so sick…www.georgesrousse.com
this shot originally sat in my rejected bin…it was taken at the foot of the large rockway falls during the winter. i posted some photos of it earlier. i didn’t like the photo at first because it was wayyy too misty from the falls to clearly see anything. i was able to save a lot of the detail though with some quick processing. so here’s a tree frozen by the mist at the foot of rockway falls in southern ontaril.
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.
