Streams of Light

Photography can be a very interesting passion as it can be explored at so many levels and can be accelerated by the type of equipment and techniques used. One such technique is doing long exposure shots at night which creates stunning images of streams of light. The first tow images were done keeping the camera still and having the subjects move but the last two are images in which the subjects were still and the camera moved. Check it out.

 

 

 

The Beauty of Water

I thought I would share more of my photos from my time in Niagara Falls. One of the most fascinating parts of the experience there was seeing the rainbow(s) occurring. Over the basin of the falls there were, at times, double rainbows that were very visually apparent. Here are a few more photos that show the rainbows better.

 

 

As the Sun Sets

This is a collection of images taken of the sun setting behind the Toronto skyline. The first image is taken at around 8:00 PM and the last shot is taken at around 9:30 PM. Sunsets happen fairly quickly but they are worth watching as the sky and the lighting becomes magical before your eyes.

Have you ever watched the sunset? What emotions do you have while watching one? Feel free to leave links to sunset images you have taken too.

Light Burst

Sometimes you have to create the subject if there is nothing interesting catching your eye. This week I did some studio work with LED drawing and these are some of the results. Building off of the interest I have for the sun I figured I would try to emulate a sun with its rays.

Using manual mode is a great way to explore the power of technical photography and provides you with so many more options compared to auto mode. What do you think of the images? Have you tried this technique before?

Gallery Squared

I am a member of the Art Gallery of Ontario ( http://www.ago.net/ ) and recently i was there viewing the various collections. Inspired by the photographic exhibit i shot all of these images from inside the AGO building looking outside.

Looking South to the downtown core and the CN tower. The dots in the photo are from the actual glass on the window and help in adding effects to the image without much post-editing.

Looking West.

The the reflection in the bottom of the photo was from the window pain.

I find it interesting that i was at an art gallery yet i was actually creating my own art in the process. It was like the meaning of the word “gallery” was raised to the power of two.

City Reflections

I was downtown at Yonge and Dundas the other day and i was talking pictures of the bustling Dundas Square yet through my viewfinder i found some even more interesting shots. Rather than taking photos of all the people i focused on the reflections casted onto the sides of the glass buildings. The weather was great and it was a sunny and clear day. This helped my case as the reflections were very vivid and the colours of the Square and surrounding buildings were very stunning. Check it out.
