Is it broken?

IMG_1054.jpg

After jumping off the stage at the end of his set… Marcel, Lead vocals and guitar of band called Die Hexe , announced to the audience that he thought he broke his ankle.

For the rest of the show, he was be asked probably around 100 times.. if it was broken..

no word yet from the doctor whether or not it is actually broken.. but pretty punk rock regardless of the outcome.

Canon 60D Kit lens blah blah blah

Product Photography (day 5)

IMG_0230.JPG

I run a small clothing line/brand. I’ve noticed some kind of sad but interesting things. If you take good product photo’s people buy more things. It’s kind of sad to say that we are sold on a cool image of a product but interested that psychologically that is a thing.

It’s also debated that you can sell more if you have an actual good product but that’s still not proven.

These are on the Canon 40mm 2.8 pancake lens with some macro focus and direct sunlight.

Walking On Sunshine.

Image

 

I was at a wedding a few days ago, and like most weddings they had a dance. That old song, “Walking On Sunshine” came on. you know the one with the “Wooh ohh” part after they say the words “I’m walking on sunshine”? Yeah that one.

So while up dancing my legs off, and working up a fat kid sweat, I started thinking what it would actually be like to walk on sunshine and if that is actually possible. I’m not talking about walking on the sun… No, I’m talking about walking on light. The shine, from the sun. Sunshine. 

Quickly did I stop thinking about this just as a beautiful girl moved and danced in front of me (my gf) :).

I took this photo a few days ago. The Location is the shore of Lake Erie along Rondeau Ontario. It’s shot with a Yashica FX-D Quartz 35mm SLR, with a 50mm lens. – I don’t know the exact settings. But I know it wasn’t a full closed aperture maybe 11 or 8, but I know it was 1/250 shutter speed. 

If you haven’t noticed by now, the photo is extremely over exposed due to the light from the sun reflecting down on to the clear white sand and into all directions. A clear, clear sky made the sunlight fall down like a water fall that afternoon, and leaving me with a slight sunburn….

The Silhouette of the girl is walking on the sunshine.

The sunshine glaring down on the sand. The sunshine burning my face. The sunshine beaming through the lens and over exposing itself onto my 400iso film. The sunshine that brings life. The sunshine that brings darkness. The sun, shining, allowing us to live, allowing us to be.

Keeping The Smile

20140617-172053-62453231.jpg

Sometimes when we least expect it, the smallest yet most significant things in life will fly by without us ever acknowledging or realizing their, or the moments, existence. How often do we only desire the future, do we only desire anything but the here and now. I do this all the time, my only wish is for the things that I am anticipating or something weeks away that could happen.

This photo was taken on a 35mm toy camera with a slight bubbled fisheye 35mm lens on the cheapest 400iso film I could find. – I bought it for .99cents and was hoping it would produce some interesting light leaks but turns out to work flawlessly – it even has a hot shoe for a external flash.

I was walking around the old city on the river (Gault) with my girlfriend Sarah. She was joking around saying she wanted ice cream and started pulling my arm, so I decided to joke and pull her the other way, I was holding the camera in my other hand, turned it and without looking through the view finder, snapped this photo. It was one of the first photos I had taken on it and I wasn’t even sure if the shutter was opening all the way.

I love this photo. To me , it’s one of the best photo I’ve ever taken, if not my most favourite. Not because it’s in perfect focus or because it’s perfectly framed because it’s non of those things. It’s actually a terrible quality photo.

The best thing is the smile. The best thing is the emotion. The best thing is the happiness.

The best thing is that I captured a moment that would have been forgotten, that I actually forgot ever happened until I got the film developed. I had to search my memory and ask Sarah where and why this photo happened. It just brings about so much joy to my soul when I see this photo. This photo doesn’t just represent a image, it represents a moment in time.

Thanks for reading.

This is Sarah.

This photo is taken in the 59th Street Subway station in New York City.

The Bokeh or Blurr makes it hard to see that there is actually a subway train racing by behind her.

Mittens.

This is Barney.

I’m house sitting for my friends while they escape the Canadian dream to pursue the warm sunshine hug of a beach in Florida. Which really makes me wonder about the ideas of vacations. We live our lives somewhere but need an escape from them known as a ‘Vacation’.

Are the lives we create for ourselves really that depressing that we need to escape from them to somehow regain our, possible happiness or purpose… or something. – Anyways.. I’m house sitting for them while they do that.. I guess.

for real though… They have a cat and a small dog and a small apartment in southern Ontario Canada. also, it’s been one of the coldest winters in 50 years, also, I’m really lazy and love to sit around on the couch and tweet about things I think that I think about while watching indie Films on Netflix. – So, the thought of taking care of an animal is dreadful. – Well, ok, it’s not that bad.

Anyways, in order to walk a small dog in a snow covered world, involves preparing the small dog like a 5 year who wants to go play out in the snow…. mittens.

Here is a shot i snapped with my 60D while attempting to put these stupid little mittens on this funny looking nervous, almost hairless little animal. – I got lucky, but sometimes in the right light, my 18 – 55mm 3.6 kit lens can take a really sharp shot.. This is almost one of those times.

Throwing Snow at Your Girlfriend.

Image

We had a pretty big snow storm in southern Ontario over the last couple days. So, we went on a walk.

I brought my camera, and threw snow at my girlfriend.

I thought it was worth it.

ISO400, 18mm , F5.6,  1/30 , Built In Flash.

No Destination.

We walk to the end of a path with no destination.

Only to turn around and walk back.

Yet, we feel satisfied with it.

Enjoy the journey.
