A little bit about me

I’m an amateur photographer currently based in Canada but I do like to travel, (although not nearly as much as I really would like to), as you’ll see a lot of my current photography consists of architecture, city, water and landscapes of places I’ve visited or lived in.  All photo’s that appear here were taken by myself, I will, of course, credit any that were taken by someone else.

I take photo’s of what catches my eye, when I’m somewhere new I always take off on my own to have a wander, get lost (sometimes), and look for some magic in the mundane.  In the future I have plans for some fashion, portraiture, and perhaps product photography.

I’m currently working on a fairytale, (some dark, others light), and toy series, and of course plotting new adventures.

 Which Camera?

Canon 5D ~ or  as my friend refers to it, the grown up camera.  I’m saving for an upgrade to the 5D III, but this has been a fantastic camera and I’ll still use it when I do get the next one.  I mostly use this one but lately there have been quite a few times when having a smaller camera was necessary.

Lenses ~ Canon 24-70mm f/2.8, macro 100mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4

Olympus XZ-1 ~ this is a little beauty, if you’re trying to get some street shots you’ll find taking out the big camera brings a bit too much unwanted attention, most people ignore the smaller, touristy camera it’s the same when you go to take photo’s in buildings.  The Olympus, it’s a bit like a grown up camera in disguise and while it does have a few disadvantages in comparison with a grown up camera, I’ve been very pleased the results.

iPhone 6 ~ while I usually carry the Olympus in my handbag the iPhone is much more accessible for those moments you need to capture very quickly, it’s also handy if you want to recreate a scene in a studio setting.

 

*P.S. I also have another blog about my commuting life that sucks up so much of my time.  The blog however I’ve been horribly negligent, will try to change that.  https://gotocommutinghell.wordpress.com/

*P.P.S. There is yet another blog, where I dabble in writing, fashion, and the random rant.  https://tothewednesdayborn.wordpress.com/
