52 Week Challenge – Week 9

Escape Velocity Spring Series began on Saturday, typically the start of the  road racing season in the Lower Mainland. A three-person breakaway for a large portion of the Elite Men’s race highlighted the action.

52 Week Challenge – Week 8

Snow in Vancouver, quite unusual. Picked a bright sunny afternoon and headed to Camosun Bog at the edge of Pacific Spirit Park with my X-T1 and Rokinon 12mm to get more comfortable with the manual focus of this lens. You’d think it would be pretty simple with a 12mm lens! The image below is the trail to the bog.

Top shot is the same afternoon with snow covering the carpet of moss in the bog. Bottom image is in that same spot last summer. (Fujifilm X-E2 | XF35mm f1.4 R)

52 Week Challenge – Week 7

I’ve always loved tulips, and photographing them…even when they are wilted.

This image was tweaked and converted to b/w in Lightroom with two textures applied in On1 Photo RAW 2018.

52 Week Challenge – Week 6

This image is a week late, but I could not post it until the bride and groom had seen the photos I shot last Saturday. This is one of my favourites, as the young flower girls anxiously await the bride.

52 Week Challenge – Week 5

The weather conspired against me this week, so this image pretty much sums up my experience, shooting a landscape through the windshield of the car. Classic Chrome film simulation and edited in Lightroom.

52 Week Challenge – Week 4

I hadn’t really shot anything this week that I felt was worth posting. I’d had this idea of shooting abstract reflections on a wet street for weeks now, so here at the very end of my shooting week are some samples. These are all jpegs using the Velvia film simulation and shot with Fujifilm X-T1 | 50-140 f2.8 R LM OIS WR

52 Week Challenge – Week 3

The final cyclocross event of the season was on Sunday. There were high winds, sideways rain, lot’s of mud and even sunshine. Here is one of my favourites of the day: jpeg, classic chrome simulation.
