Screen Brightness

Sunday, June 4th, 2006

I imagine this image will be a good test of how your screen colour and brightness levels are set. Last night I played around with a pitch black room, a wine glass, a mini-mag light, and a red blanket.

Macro Moose

Thursday, June 8th, 2006

My Tamron 90mm 2.8 Macro lens arrived today. I was playing around with it in the yard while Moose was playing and was able to get him to sit still for a second to snap a shot of his eye (and the reflection of the sky in it).

Down Time and the Union Station Statue at Dusk

Friday, June 23rd, 2006

First of all, I appologize for the extended downtime on the server, my hosting company was having some issues with the server my site is hosted on.

This is a picture I took Wednesday evening at dusk of the (often photographed) statue just outside of Union Station in Toronto. Note that the bird in the statue’s right hand is actually real bird, joining his stone counterparts.

Revisiting Old Photos

Monday, June 26th, 2006

This is actually a picture I took 8 years ago on an old film Point and Shoot in a park in Santiago, Chile. I used my 20D and macro lens to photograph the negative on a backlid board, then inverted in Photoshop to get this effect.
