The Usual Angle

OK, this is the angle that everyone shoots in BCE place. What I tried to do is play with the contrast to make it about light and shadow, as much as about architecture.

BCE Place

The interior of BCE Place in downtown Toronto is photographed so often that it is difficult to avoid the cliched images that have been taken so often. In this image I tried changing the angle to get the building within the building.

On My Feet Again!

A break from my Scotland images 🙂 I was finally well enough after my back injury a couple of weeks ago to go out for a shoot, so it was off to the Beaches.

I’ve never had much luck with Ilford HP5+ in 35mm; my scans always had too much grain for my taste, and I didn’t like the tonality. Shooting in medium format (at an exposure index of 250 instead of the box speed of 400)  I am liking the results better!
