New shot on the blog! Here's how I made it.
Moraine Lake is one of the most photographed lakes in the world, but this was actually my first time visiting it when I took this shot. Despite the remote looking landscape, there’s easy vehicle access in the summer months, and that means that it’s teeming with people during the day. There are nice shots to …

Long exposures using ND filters are a great way to make more dynamic looking landscape images. Whilst there are many great apps for calculating the long exposure times with specific ND filters, I recently found myself in temperatures so cold that a mobile device would not work. This reminded me that a simple printed long exposure table is a great resource to keep in your camera bag. I went looking for a good one to print from the internet, but since one didn't exist that met my standards, I decided to make one and share it with you guys.

Well... one thing lead to another and I also decided I can't just share the raw numbers with you, I might as well take the opportunity to add to the growing list of resources on Shutter Muse, and explain how you get these numbers as well. Personally I find it interesting to know a bit of the "back story" to all the photographic physics.

When I wrote this popular post last year, I promised I'd keep it running as a series to document any changes I make. I've made some sizeable updates to my computer system since the last one. Always learning, always improving...

I thought it would be fun to look at all the stuff from my camera bag that's not a camera or a lens. This is all the "other stuff" that's always in my pack.
EDC or Everyday Carry is the stuff that's always on me. Cameras and lenses are specific to the task at hand, but amongst those items, this is the kit that's always in my bag or pocket.

Just picked this up! Love at first site.
It’s always an exciting day when a big brown box arrives, especially when it says Canon on the side. This year, due to economical situations in Canada (where I live) and Japan, Canon raised their prices on all their lenses and cameras. Whilst this is always a bit of a blow, they were at least …

For a travel adapter that does it all, I recommend this:
http://www.amazon.com/Twist-Universal-Ultra-portable-Worldwide-charging/dp/B010Q6GSR6
It has a total of 4 USB outlets, plus the ability to add a Macbook charger or larger iPad charger. It's all I need, plus the cables.

New technical resource on my website.
Field of view is a lens characteristic that is directly related to the focal length of your lens and determines how much you can see with a lens.

An amazing experience. As a photographer, I couldn't ask for a better way to capture the beauty of this area. Friendly and professional service from start to finish, can't wait to fly on the Photo Epic tour again!

I booked a week in advance and they called an hour before my appointment to cancel because they were too busy with other dogs. I had scheduled much of my week's work around this so that I could be available to drop my dog off in the middle of the day. Whilst they were apologetic, they made no attempt to remedy the situation other than to suggest that I book another slot the following week. If I were them I would have moved heaven and earth to put this right, especially for a first time customer.
