Toronto’s first real snowstorm

FirstSnow19-136-Edit

So we got a small dump of snow on Sunday, which didn’t bother me much. But the ice pellets and high winds were pounding my face the whole day out. I still managed to get a couple of shots I like, such as this one. It sure was quiet out there, though.

And here I am…

Went out again to shoot more video for the upcoming Fujifilm XPro3 review. I thought this portrait came out nice. The video should be ready within a couple of weeks. I’ll share it here when the time comes.

Fuji XPro3 at Kensington Market

So last week I was contacted by one of Toronto’s big camera store and asked if I’d be interested in doing a video review of the new Fujifilm XPro3 rangefinder style camera. Of course I jumped at the change. Last Friday I met up with their videographer, Dale, at Kensington Market and we spent the afternoon shooting. The review is more of a user experience rather than a technical review. We also covered a bunch of tips for street photography. Being a Fuji XPro2 shooter, the XPro3 was very familiar to me already. I’ll share the final results when the camera store posts the video to YouTube. Fingers crossed it turns out well. Here are some of the shots I got with the new camera. Sadly, because I’m editing on Lightroom 6 rather than Adobe’s subscription model, my version of LR doesn’t support the new camera or the new film simulation, Classic Neg. All the shots were edited using Fuji’s Classic Chrome film simulation. Hope you like them.

Feet & Long Shadows

I shot this one back in mid-October. It was the light and shadow play that drew me to this image. I probably took a dozen shots, out of which this was the best. Hope you had a nice weekend.

Forks of the Credit

Made it up north to see the fall colours Sunday. It was a beautiful day and a very fun hike in the woods with my favourite person (my secret crush). I’m no landscape shooter, but it was nice to try something different. Hope you had a nice weekend.

Yule Love This

DavidSeanDennys-129-Edit

I shot this one yesterday at Kensington Market. It was a wet one but today’s supposed to be perfect weather for a walkabout. High teens with no rain and no humidex. I’ll be back at Kensington Market for Pedestrian Sunday. It’s the second last one of the year. Hope you’re having a nice weekend.

Wake up sleepy leg

StLawrMrktFest19-138

Had a fun day downtown yesterday. Walked all day and then went drinking with my friend Andrea. We then walked from Dundas Square to High Park, where she lives. I hopped the bus home and didn’t end up getting to bed until after 1:00 AM. Pretty tired this morning but it was worth it. Shot this one at Dundas Square late yesterday afternoon. Thought it was pretty funny.

Garage at night

Shot this a week back during a very late night out with my friend Andrea. Man we had some laughs. Didn’t get home until almost 4:00 AM, but it was worth every minute of it.
