Assignment A Week #4 – Shoot Into the Light

This weeks assignment is all about shooting into the light. Go out for a walk, be it a whole day or just an hour for your lunch, and aim your lens in the direction of the sun. It’s a tricky exercise as you need to find that perfect balance between your highlights and shadows. Making sure you don’t clip or clamp either. I prefer to shoot in dense urban environments as the light reflects off the buildings, which tend to

Travel Journal: New York

I’m back again. Back in the city that never sleeps. There’s something about New York that I can’t get enough of. The people here seem to let their personalities out. Not shy to let people see who they are, unlike Toronto which feels very reserved. I landed on Friday night, dropped my bags off at the hotel, met up with the wife for dinner, then headed out for a late night walk through midtown and Times Square. It was a

Assignment A Week #3 – Pick a Location, Shoot it

I’m delayed by a week for this current assignment. Work was just too hectic to give me the opportunity to go out and shoot. Regardless for the third assignment I decided to pick a location, spend one hour shooting, and post three photos. I shot all the images this week on Kodak Vision3 5219 500T Cinema film. Since I was indoors I opted to leave it tungsten balanced, which I kind of regret not adding the warming filter as the

Assignment A Week #2: Shoot Something Different

Alright. I wanted to try something different for the second assignment. I normally shoot street and some documentary work. Be it protests or personal projects. The assignment I gave myself was to try something new. Be it landscape, macro, portrait work etc. I chose to try out Landscape. I tried shooting landscape when I first started photography years ago and felt I wasn’t very good at it nor did I have much patience for it. I don’t feel like any

Political Revolution?

This sign caught my eye when I walked by it on Sunday. I’ve gotten obsessed with photographing rally’s and protests. Some are successful and I walk away with the story along with some great photos. Other times its a complete flop show and not a single image is worthwhile. Some successful, in my opinion, protests that I’ve photographed were the Rob Ford Protest and the Irish Water Protests. Part 1 & Part 2 Oddly enough this rally is just the

Back to Normal… Hopefully

I’ve been neglecting this blog for a while. Not because I don’t have images to display, simply I’ve had zero time. With traveling for work, life on set and the craziness of my normal days I just haven’t had any time. Hopefully that changes now and I should be able to start posting images from Dublin, Chicago, London and more from Toronto. I have a huge backlog, tons of rolls yet to develop and three on-going projects that I may

London

I’ve been really delayed with a lot of images as of late. In July my wife and I decided to take a trip to London, England as we’ve both never been there. I did do some shooting but most of the images were touristy images from our trip. I ended up shooting around 2 rolls of Fuji Superia 400 and 2 Rolls of Kodak T-Max 400. Below are some of the keepers from the trip. I need to plan another

County Antrim Post

I was recently contacted by the County Antrim Post, in Northern Ireland, about the images I posted here on my blog. They were interested in featuring some of my images in their weekly newspaper and they included a little blurb about me. Nice to know I have some readers in Northern Ireland! You can see the article embedded below. Thanks to Damien for providing me with a PDF. -Dominic
