My Tunnel Exploration

By | October 29, 2013

I have a strange fascination with sink holes. It is the only topic I seem to post about on Google Plus. I admire the symmetry of a sink hole and its cylindrical hallway to doom. I love that a sink hole appearing in the middle of a street looks like a Photoshop. However, I understand… Read More »

My Experience With Canon Canada Repair

By | August 30, 2011

I bought my Canon EOS 5D in September 2010 with the knowledge that it did not have the mirror fix completed on it. Some 5D users never had the mirror fix performed and don’t bother sending it in for repairs while others had the mirror physically fall out. Not wanting to continue to risk the… Read More »

My Harlem Globetrotter Photography Job

By | April 9, 2011

Last week Gord sent me a link to a Craigslist posting asking for photographers to photograph fans at the Friday and Saturday Harlem Globetrotters performance.

My Manual Exposure

By | March 18, 2010

No image stabilization, no auto focus, no ability to preview a shot after it was taken and when you start a roll off at a certain ISO you are stuck at that speed until you’re done. All of this sounds like a negative but after using a DSLR for 18 months I decided to take… Read More »

My Disposable Results

By | February 13, 2010

For as long as I can remember I had a Fujifilm QuickSnap disposable camera in my bedside drawer. I don’t know when I got it, what photos were taken with it, or where it has been, but it was always there. I rediscovered the camera a few years ago and there were half of the… Read More »
