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

Assignment A Week #1: Go Wide, Very Wide

Note: Click on the image to see more work. Well. It’s time to post my first assignment. I’ve been getting too comfortable when it comes to my street photography. Getting farther and farther from my subject and straying away from my 28mm and shooting more with the 50mm. I felt lazy. So I decided to push myself to the opposite spectrum. Ultra-wide. So here’s the assignment I gave myself: Shoot a Roll of film (24 / 36), or shoot 24

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

Paris in 72h

Back in May of this year I decided to make a pit stop in Paris for 72h before flying back to Toronto. I’ve been to Paris years before with my wife and that time was reserved for doing your typical touristy stuff. Since we managed to see everything during that trip, this trip was dedicated to wandering the street and snapping pictures. I shot an equal amount this time, on film, and on the M9. This is a first for

Warwick Hotel

A figure waits patiently… Silhouetted by the light of The Warwick Hotel… Waiting for his contact to arrive. (Part of an on-going series) There is nothing more that I love than shooting on Kodak Cinema film. I’ve written about this in the past and have documented how people can develop their own Motion Picture Film here. The colour this film outputs at night is stunning and something I’m looking forward to using when I manage to get a Hasselblad XPan.

Irish Water Protest Pt. 2

Back in September, Dublin residents were protesting the installation of water meters and the formation of Irish Water. During that time the protests themselves were quite small. Around a 100 people or so at times. When I arrived back in Dublin a couple weeks ago I stumbled upon a protest in the city center. To my surprise I saw at least a couple thousand people, if not more, chanting about burning their bills and the un-willingness to pay Irish Water.

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.

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

Dutched Watermelon

I watched the couple after I snapped this photo wondering if the watermelon belonged to them. I gave up after a few minutes but they never touched it or looked at it. What was this watermelon, wrapped, doing there lopsided on the garbage can. Meh! Dublin, Ireland (June 2014) Leica M7 + Voigtlander Ultron 28mm f/2 + Ilford XP2 400
