This is a lens I hardly ever shoot with, but yesterday I paired it up with my Sony A7ii and shot it wide open, and was pleasantly surprised by the bokeh.
Another Portrait of My Friend Ken
I met up with my good friend Ken yesterday, and brought along my Sony Alpha 6100 camera and TTArtisan 35mm f/0.95. I am really enjoying using this lens for portraits; it is rapidly becoming one of my favourites.
Chairs In the Ice
Down in the Beaches again this week, and noticed two Muskoka chairs frozen in the ice. I took this image with my Sony A7ii and my TTArtisans 50mm f/2 lens.
Ice on the Shores of Lake Ontario
On Boxing Day (December 26th) of this year, I went with a couple of friends to the Beaches to shoot the ice that had built up along the water. The ice was amazing; the look and texture different from what I had seen in the past.
I used my Sony A7ii with an old Canon FD 200mm f/4 lens, which at the very least allowed me to not have to walk on too much of the slippery ice!
In a city of expensive real estate, resulting in a housing crisis for many, I am surprised this ramshackle house is still in its present condition. It looks like it could tell a story to two!
Recently I was out with my Wednesday photowalk friends and we ran across a kayak rental on the Humber River here in Toronto. I loved the look of the kayaks stored together, like puzzle pieces.
Five Minutes by the Water
Last Saturday I went down to the Beaches, this time with my Sony A7ii camera and Tamron 90mm lens. For a window of a few minutes there was some amazing light!
The Old and Newish Continued
I am continuing to have fun with the combination of my close to six decades old Helios lens and my only a few years old Sony A7ii digital body. This image is from the Beaches this past Sunday. I managed to capture some of the background swirl this lens is known for.
A Wash of Colour
It has been a while; let’s just say the summer has been challenging, and some things have suffered as a result, like my photo blog. I will try to do better.
I was out this afternoon with a lens I have not used in a while: my Lensbaby Sweet35. I love its primitive characteristics, and the way colour seems to wash through the image.
Loving the Swirl
I was in the Beaches again this past weekend, and my lens of choice was my 58mm/f2 Helios 44/2. I love the overall look and swirl of this lens when used wide open!
