52 Week Challenge – Week 13

More long exposure experimentation at Vancouver City Hall. It was very windy and I wasn’t sure if my tripod would remain steady with a 406 second exposure. I used 19 stops of neutral density and some post in Lightroom to achieve this result.

52 Week Challenge – Week 12

It was another weekend of bicycle racing, this time in Aldergrove, BC. The day was a mixed bag of brilliant sunshine and threatening clouds. The winds were strong along 0 Avenue, next to the US border and even forced riders into echelons.

52 Week Challenge – Week 11

I’m getting a little behind in posting my weekly photos, but rest assured, I’m still creating one each week. This past week was my first chance to test my new Formatt-Hitec 100mm filters (an attempt to standardize my filters across different lenses). I shot this one at one of my favourite spots to capture the late afternoon light and the city skyline.

Technical notes: 10 stop ND + 3 stop soft edge grad ND, 30 second exposure, processed entirely in On1 2018 software. Anamorphic crop (2.39:1)

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.
