I’m Sorry

I know I used to post a few times a week. I’m sorry I don’t anymore.

You see, when I had absolutely nothing and felt like a total failure without a purpose I stumbled across a camera.This camera took me on a journey of self discovery.  I learned things about my abilities and my passions. I found a new perspective and new outlook through my current perspective. I learned, I grew, and I expressed the things I saw and the things I experienced. I pushed myself for more and grew a whole lot.

That was 3 years.

Today, I am a totally different person than I was then. I become what I pursued and dreamnt bigger dreams because of it. I still use that camera everyday. It allows me to see.

I started a non profit organization to help others like me. To help people who felt/feel like me. To inspire humans to love each other and express them selves.

I owe a lot of this to my camera and to this blog.

It was here I was able to express. We all deserve to be able to express ourselves.

I’m @npegg and I have a camera.

Albion Falls

DCIM100GOPRO

Wasn’t really much for waterfalls. I mean, I get that they are awesome, but I just never felt a desire to go and photograph them. The other day I was feeling kinda down, so I asked Sarah if she wanted to go on a photography adventure. She said “yes” and that made me super happy.

luckily there is a cool waterfall liek 3 mins from her house. So we went there. Albion falls, in Hamilton Ontario.

My goal was to shoot a timelapse. As I’ve already shot a long exposure here before and it came out purple thanks to my 3 dollar ND filters.

I started from the bottom (like drake)

Then tried the top.

Taking roughly 20 min time lapses at each. 4 second intervals.

Galt.

 

Had a few hours to kill in Galt Ontario.

Walked around with a 40mm 2.8 Pancake attached to a Canon 60D

Galt has, for a while now, been the subject of alot of cameras. A few horror films have been shot there. And it seems everyone and their 4 year old wants to instagram the place. Painters and poets also seem to flock there. I guess I don’t blame them. It is a cool glimpse into the “once was, now isn’t” book.

 

The cloud texture made a cool backdrop for some silhouetting in post.

so, here are some eerie shots of old Galt Ontario

The Real World.

Hamilton Ontario Skyline, in the late November fog.

Today, I turned down a Job opportunity.

I don’t actually have a real job, so that was probably a bad idea.

I turned down 35k a year. ( which is significant in comparison to my 12k a year I’m making now)

I guess, I’m just not into money.

Maybe I’m into funding however.

Money is a tool to help you get other tools, so you can accomplish a goal.

Money is not a net that catches you when everything falls apart.

Money is a mirage.

Maybe life is a mirage too.

Anyways, I said no to an opportunity that was big. However, by doing that I through myself blind into something much, much bigger.

Hope.

Crowd.

I found my self in the photography pit fro a recent local August Burns Red concert. It’s a funny story how I got int here to begin with. But once in there, I realized I was totally unprepared to take concert photo’s. I was shooting a Vlog that day for another project.

There were a few moments when the lights were right for my Kit lens on my canon 60D to handle the surroundings.

I wasn’t actually trying to take this picture, it was more of “hey I see my friend in the crowd lets take a picture of him” at the exact moment a very popular song started up by the band , the crowd roared and I snapped a picture with loads of emotion.  And my friend Matt smiling center frame.

There were only like 3 other pictures that turned out from the 100 that I took.

Such is life.

Thanks for reading.
