Weekend wandering

GFX 50S and the Mamiya Sekor C 150mm f/3.5 lens I spent a few hours over the weekend with the fantastic Fujifilm GFX 50S and just one lens, the Mamiya 645 Sekor C 150mm f/3.5. Of the three Mamiya 645 lenses that I own, the 150mm...

Close to home

Found images in the Winter light Spent part of the weekend looking for interesting light. Didn’t find any. But I did see enough to want to capture a few images around the house and along the shore. Just seems to be the way it is this...

More slow photos

A few hours spent with the GFX 50S I took advantage of a few, rain-free hours the past two weekends to take out the Fujifilm GFX 50S for some tripod-based photography. I used two Fujinon GF lens on loan from Fujifilm Canada, the GF23mm f/4 and...

Behind the scenes

A few moments at a press conference Some images captured at a presser today. In the relatively small confines of the Reception Hall, I shoot with the XF16-55mm f/2.8 lens on the X-T2 and, today, the XF35 f/2 lens on my X-Pro2.  Acros-R film simulation...

Portrait synthesis

GF110mm lens reflections and GFX follow up Over the past couple of months, I have integrated the new Fujifilm GFX 50S into my work photography. It has become my portrait camera of choice and I use it for large group photos. I still rely upon...

Elevated perspective

Sea planes and small cameras, a perfect match for aerial photography I have the good fortune, really good fortune, to travel by float (sea) plane on a regular basis between the provincial capital, Victoria, and Vancouver. My work takes me there, most often for...

Neighbourhood noire

As the light dims The light has been flat all day. As night approaches, there is a threat of rain. Wandering the neighbourhood looking for any light, finding little. The world resolves into flat shapes, silhouettes against the darkening sky. Reason enough to make...
