Just Be Cooking

On Monday night I was shooting my good friend Maria Rozynska as she taught a group class in how to make perogies for her new Just Be Cooking business. I know Maria from musical theatre and we both agreed that leading a class like this is like putting on a performance, and she did a fine job!

Where You Find It

Another working trip to Calgary this week; I had my DSLR with me to do a portrait for a co-worker, but no real time for photography otherwise. I did notice an interesting light pattern in my hotel room though. You shoot it where you find it.

In the Dark

As I’ve said before, I am not a film-only purist, and there are times when digital technology s what is needed to get the shot. Last night was one of those occasions. I was shooting Angela Saini at the Free Times Cafe here in Toronto. A great location to hear great music, but the stage is very dimly lit. I had to crank up the ISO on my Nikon D7100 to 6400, just to get a decent shot in available light. 6400 is a speed that takes drastic chemical steps to achieve in a film camera, and I wold likely have ended up with golf-ball sized grain. I like this look better.
