the last two photowalks

11 Feb

Saturday February 9th

so the other day i went to Ward’s island and shot around for a little bit but alas i didn’t get enough time to properly explore i didn’t even get to visit the rectory cafe but throughout my walk i rediscovered the closeness that is experienced there there was a great game of shinny i know i am not much of a hockey fan by any means an but still there was such a warm feeling when i watch this in fact this is one of my favorite reasons to go there in the winter. some of the other reasons for me loving the island as a photo spot and also one can explore for hours on end or until your camera batteries die or you run out of film for your camera but i didn’t take my Leica i just did digital this time but i got to the island at around 330 and shot until the sun went down i think that i need an extra battery or two but my 7D did a lot of the work i still love to use it when it is not required that be discreet the quality is just that wonderful. and i was shooting with the Olympus for my wide shots and sometimes while the 7D was doing a longer exposure i would snap a shot with the pm1 but it was a productive walk  in the end  i came home with about 2400 photos between the two cameras here are a  few images i thought turned out

Sunday February 10th

Summerhill area

so yesterday i went for another romp with only the Olympus as my camera of choice for the day and i realized that my camera was set to ISO 640 in the middle of my walk because due to my transition lenses and the way my LCD screen on the camera is designed do i could not see the LCD screen very well but in the end i just worked through it and in the end the images weren’t to  bad when you shoot with a  high ISO it can look grainy but they werent noticeable but there is a quote i like and its f someone notices noise in your image it is boring so i like that and it is true the content of the image is more important then the noise and i seem to be one of those people that looks for noise before taking in the whole photo and it is a habit i am trying to break. but Chase Jarvis released a book called the best camera and he takes all the photos with an iPhone and not an iPhone 4 or 5 but the original iPhone psst instagram didn’t exist yet

but the images are so wonderfully inspirational that it makes one understand the ideal that the camera should not be the limit of your creativity cameras are merely tools and how you use it is up to you in fact on my Flickr page i have a set has photos from my blackberry and i am planning to continue that soon




the photos are below ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
