Decided I'd play with my walk leader's mind this year.  Quebec city in the fall.

Will you be able to spot what I did here? (The clues are fairly apparent btw) ;)

Have a good weekend everyone and enjoy the colors of fall if you can!

Personal challenge results

Last week, to replicate my cousin's assignment, I gave myself a little challenge to see if I could still view in creative fashion.  That challenge was to photograph with the same constraints as I had when I started doing photography, and that she now has in her class. So the challenge rules were the following : 

Subject : Circles, Lines, Squares
B&W Jpegs Out of the Camera
Lens : 50mm f1.8, manual focus
No flash allowed
24 consecutive poses, no replay / live view allowed (because it's supposed to be a 35mm film)
Av or full manual mode (to mimic the aperture ring on the lens)
Same ISO for the whole shoot (again to replicate the film)

And I was to come out with 5 shots to present that I liked before wednesday.

I have to say that I'm really happy to have made this.  It really challenged me not to be able to see the result immediately and knowing I usually had only one shot per subject, so I had to get the framing, exposure and focus right on the first shot.

There was one shot that mired while I was trying to compose and focus and it really frustrated me to have "wasted" one shot of my "film".  I may do more of these in the upcoming weeks because I really felt like my photographic view was improving as I neared the end of the challenge by not relying on the camera to see if what I was taking was interesting or not.

Anyways, here are the results of this little personal experiment. :)

Have a good week everyone!

I'll have the time to fiddle with the raw files over the weekend but I agree they are a bit bright (and some were a bit too dark, too).

I'm happy you like them because when I started the assigment, I wasn't sure I was going to turn out anything good... Too stressed to see I guess ;)

+Alex B, my cousin who lives in Tx, is currently taking a 35mm B&W photography course.  So far so good.  But when she told me her assignment, I figured it would be a fun way to spark my creativity a bit.  So here's how my challenge (to match her assignment) goes...

Subject : Circles, Lines, Squares
B&W Jpegs Out of the Camera
Lens : 50mm f1.8, manual focus
No flash allowed
24 consecutive poses, no replay / live view allowed (because it's supposed to be a 35mm film)
Av or full manual mode
Same ISO for the whole shoot (again to replicate the film)

Assignment to be delivered by Wednesday.
I'll share my top 5 shots on the subject on wednesday, anyone interested in doing the same and re-learn how to see the light and get it right the first time around is welcomed to join me! ;)

Dinner is served

Took a second to test my new EOS M tonight.  This was taken with the help of the kit 18-55 lens and a delicious tuna tataki.

Have a good monday (hopefully not spent lying on your back) and a tasty week!

Yeah, that is a good one! The boys are really good, getting bigger. Well, mostly Franklin is getting bigger. Jack is regressing on eating and losing weight again. Other than that, they're both doing pretty good. Franklin is getting close to talking and Jack is getting close to walking. Exciting times in our house! How is James? It's so crazy how much he's grown!

I'm not sure I'd pass this interview, depends on the kind and flavor of the donut I guess... ;)

That plus it wasn't either chocolate or coffee so at least we're safe.

Did I mention I sometimes made salty caramel to eat like that or put into the cookies +Angelika Perry swears she never tasted?? Better come quickly if you want some, they won't last long ;)
