Recent Colour Work

After a full 16 months IU finally got out with my two photography buddies, David & Geoff, for some much needed phototherapy. Almost forgot how to use my camera, it’s been so long. But I did get some shots with which I’m pleased. Oh, and the last one of the cyclists was shot a week prior during a rainy outing with my dear friend Andrea. Hope you like them.

Some B/W Toronto for ya

To change it up a tad I thought I’d share some b/w images. If you already follow me on Instagram, then you’ve likely seen these. The top three are very recent images, while the last one dates back to 2013. Hope you like them. Feel free to follow me on Instagram if you enjoy black & white street photography.

Cinematic Colour Editing, Toronto

Been sort of teaching myself how to edit with a teal/orange push to give some of my photos a cinematic feel. Doesn’t work with all photos, of course, but night scenes or photos with lots of shadows make great subjects for this treatment. Obviously the one with the puppy isn’t edited in this manner, but the rest are. I think it works. Hope you like it.

Toronto Streets in colour

Here’s another set of re-edited images. Except the last one. That one I just stumbled upon in my archives. I guess I didn’t bother to edit it back in 2013 when I first made it.

My b/w street photography can be found on Instagram.

Chinatown & Toronto’s west end

The above four images are all found photos, discovered while digging through my archives. Back then (a decade ago) I often came home with a shitload of images in my camera. So many that I’d only have time to skim the newly created folder and cherry pick the best of them to edit and share. I’d plan to revisit the folder later, but inevitably I’d end up coming with the very next day with another shitload of images to edit. It’s fun, all these years later, to make such discoveries. It’s also a LOT of work going through so many images in search of candidates for my upcoming colour street photography book. Well, I suppose I’d call it more a labour of love.

As always, if you’d like to see my black & white images, check out my Instagram stream.

Toronto in Colour

I’m slowly chipping away at re-editing images from my archives. These ones are all from 2012 & 2013. I’m managing about one folder a day, maybe two if one happens to be a small folder.

Some oldies in colour

All of these shots date back to 2012/2013. I’ve re-edited each of them. With the first two I was trying my hand at a cinematic colour palette, employing teal in the shadows and redish yellow in the highlights. I find this technique really only works on darker images and night shots, but maybe it’s just that I need more practice. Anyway, hope you like them. Enjoy your weekend.

As I’ve mentioned before, please check me out on Instagram for my black & white street work.
