52 Week Challenge – Week 14

It was another weekend of racing, this time a “Roubaix” style race along the roads and dykes in Pitt Meadows. It rained for most of the day which helped to mimic some of the conditions often found in the Belgian spring classics.

Concentration, determination or despair…not sure which one of these he was feeling.

The weather and physical surroundings created a very Flandrian feel to the race.

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 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.
