Food truck at night

I shot this one with the Fujifilm X Pro 2, sporting the 16mm f1.4 lens. Here’s an odd thing, though. I shot this at f4 and 1/60th of a second, which is pretty much the same settings I’d use with … Continue reading

OCAD on McCaul

I shot this on Canada Day. I always struggle to compose a nice shot of this building. Usually there are cars clogging up the street. But not on this holiday I guess not many people were out and about. The … Continue reading
