Mr. Incognito

I remember the day being very warm. Stifling at times. As I was walking down the street this gentleman was heading towards me. Brimmed hat and a light jacket. How he wasn’t boiling is beyond me but it was an image I had to capture. Glad I did. Paris, France (May 2015) Leica M7 + Leica 28mm Summicron-M + Kodak T-Max 400

Only on Broadway

I don’t normally take pictures of street performers. Don’t know if wandering around with a snake and having people place it on their shoulders counts as being a performer but sure why not. Everyone there had their jaws slack watching this snake wrap around the guys neck and I kept wondering whether or not he’ll be able to get it off his neck afterwards.

Almost

Gah! Sometimes shooting from the hip is good when you want to be quick and achieve a specific angle. Sometimes you manage to get the shot your looking for. And other times you fail like I did above! I love the look on the womans face but the composition is obviously a fail. If only I had tilted down a touch more I think I would have gotten the shot I was looking for in my mind. -Dominic Soho, NYC

Hollow Eyes

I took this photograph back in September when I was wandering the streets of Dublin. I saw someone careening towards me on a bike, weaving through pedestrians and yelling at the top of his lungs. Just as he blew past me I snapped this photo. Compositionally it’s nothing special. He’s positioned to far to the right edge of frame, and the shutter was too slow. BUT I like the fact that he’s completely smeared. When I look at his face

Hitchcock Moment

I photographed this back in early September when I was back in Dublin filming Vikings Season 3. We were filming offset days and wrapping around 9pm. Right before the sun set all these birds would take off and start murmurating. Is that even a word? I know murmuration is. It felt like a Hitchcock moment. This wasn’t even a one time occurance. We were filming in this location over 3 days and the same thing happened on each day! Weird.

Shapes and Shadows in L.A.

I’ve written about my interest in photographing shapes and shadows in the past and after my trip to LA, in August, I feel the project is starting to slowly take shape. Not all these images will be keepers in the final project but their images none the less that will inspire me to take more based on this theme. As I’ve grown as a photographer I feel like having assignments and projects help motivate me to continue to do what

Kilmainham Gaol Part II

A few months ago I visited Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin, Ireland. During that time I shot a quite a bit on film as well as on my mobile phone, the LG Nexus 5. I posted the photos I took with the Nexus 5 here. Since I had no access to a lab or chemicals to develop the film it had to wait till I returned to Toronto. After reviewing the photos I was pleasantly surprised, there’s something about not seeing

Shooting film in Madrid with the Leica M6

As a continuation of the previous post, Madrid with the Fuji X100S, this one focuses on the shots I took with the Leica M6. In my eyes I much prefer the shots I took on film versus the shots I took with the Fuji X100S. It seems I still have a soft spot for film. Setup: Leica M6 + Leica Summicron 50mm f/2 + Kodak T-Max 400 (Some pushed to 1600 ISO) Thanks for visiting and feel free to comment
