Travel Journal: New York (Day 2)

Saturday was my photography day as my wife likes to put it. Walk her to the closest shopping area, map out her stores, then carry on. So my first instinct was to head straight down to Chinatown and Little Italy. These are always locations I have to hit when I’m in New York. There’s just so much chaos and activity there. I did make one pit stop on my way down at Dashwood Books to pick up a copy of

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.

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.

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
