Busy Busy Busy


STAMP season is in crunch time, what with Orientation coming up next week and all. Which means that I am super busy. I have the weekend off but I have 2 weddings to shoot this weekend. I will post some stuff on Friday most likely but until then.....

This is a Layout that I did for a school assignment. We had to go down to Steam Whistle Brewery in downtown Toronto and profile it for a 2 page spread. We had to include 7 key shots: One of the holding tanks, one of the workers, one of the retail space, etc. 

Below is my favourite of the series

I baked them the night before class. Then carefully carried them over with a million other things. I'm using 2-3 lights and like 4 little mirrors. The colour in the small version is so dull, click on the image for a better view. It still does not look like the TIFF version

Above is the unprocessed RAW File. I then processed out 3 images. 1 where I processed for the Highlights, one for the Shadows, and then one neutral one (Same exposure but with the colour temperature corrected.) I then took it into Photoshop and combined them into the image below. The image below has a High Dynamic Range (HDR) you can see that there are many more tones then what is seen in the original image. 

This is not the best image to use for HDR, but it works and I just wanted to test out the method. I'll be experimenting with HDR and soon I will get something really cool. Generally HDR images are really over processed and look fake. I really like the method that I've found because it is practical, this can be used for weddings and capturing both the sky detail and detail in the subjects faces.

The following images may be considered graphic to some viewers....If you lived at 153 Hanna Rd then viewer discretion is strongly advised.

This is my family home. I had lived here for 17 years... we sold it and a developer is tearing it down to build a much bigger home

I will add to this post today

Sorry if I have been away recently. I just had a get together with some old friends at my new place, and then I shot a wedding today with Bruce. Tomorrow I get to shoot another wedding which I need to start shooting for at 9:00 in the morning! It's 12:25 right now and I just got back from the wedding I had today! So needless to say that I really haven not had the time to shoot more stuff. 

So in the meantime another old assignment has been posted.

This is a shot from 2 years ago. A day trip Erin and I took to the island. I went the island this year with STAMP and took this same shot with someone else's camera. When I got home I remembered that I had taken the same shot 2 years earlier, so I thought I would post it today
