Venice, Blurred II

Another experiment, this time a second take similar to the previous post. Taken during the last weekend of Carnival in Venice, Italy. Field Notes With my Lee filter system mounted and Big Stopper attached, I held the shutter open manually while blindly trying to frame what was ahead of me. It …

Never Too Far Behind

Life is funny. 7 years ago, totally unexpected, I met the most amazing woman ever. I’m still not sure how, but we quickly became friends, and today I have the privilege to consider her my best friend. We’ve been almost inseparable since that night, which she would claim not to be …

Venice, Blurred

This week, we have another of these experimental blurred/camera movement images. This time from a perhaps more recognisable place. This was taken during the last Carnival weekend in February from the side of a Vaporetto heading back to Piazza San Marco from San Giorgio Maggiore. Field Notes With my Lee filter system …

Amsterdam, the Ij

A little experiment begins. I’ve been playing with camera movement and long exposures for the last little while. Mostly because of this unintentionally blurred image I’m sharing with you today. I know this is not unique, and that there are several really good examples of intentional camera movement photographs, but …

The Pink Flamingos Artis, the Amsterdam Zoo

Something a little different this week. Weeks ago in a cold winter day, I had the idea of making a long exposure of the flamingos at the Artis, the wonderful zoo in Amsterdam. I had hoped that most of them would be standing still and sleeping, and I got lucky, as …

Toronto Subway Tunnel at the Speed of Light

When I first moved to Toronto, I was fascinated with the Subway. I used to make sure I would sit as close to the front car as possible, so that I could look out into the subway tunnels as the train moved from stop to stop. As the years went …

Marrakech Rooftops at Sunset

I’ve been thinking about Morocco and Marrakech the past few days. The landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and the desert are simply fascinating and have stayed in my mind. So I thought, why not post something from Morocco? This photograph was made from the balcony of a restaurant on our last night …

A foggy evening on the Pastoorbrug in Amsterdam

Taken quite a few weeks ago when Amsterdam was covered in a thick winter fog. This area of Amsterdam is one of the most picturesque, as well as one of the oldest. Starting from the Brouwersgracht over in the Joordan, and stretching into the medieval core of the city, it is one …

Sunrise Photoshoot in Venice at Piazza San Marco

You have to be crazier than the rest of the people in Venice in order to get the best shots, which means getting up even earlier than what most people think is already an early time to wakeup. Waking up at 5am to capture the early morning scenes in Venice has …

Manhattan from the Top of The Rock

Taken in mid December, just before Christmas from the Top of the Rock with my FujiFilm X-Pro1 and the 23mm. Many people go to the Empire State Building, to take on the sights of Manhattan, but here’s the thing. The view is mostly obstructed with heavy bars, and you need …
