Now living in Powell River, B.C. up the coast from Vancouver but originally from Montreal. I don’t travel much but I have a huge ‘back yard’ to play in and explore that includes an ocean, a temperate rainforest and a bunch of coastal mountains.
My equipment is minimalist compared to some: a Canon T2i; 70-200mm f/4L; 50mm f/1.8; Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8. I’m slowly learning the technicalities of time / aperture / ISO. More importantly, in my opinion, is the learning that’s happening about new ways of looking or seeing, composition, light, preplanning, etc. I try not to be too flamboyant with post processing in Lightroom and sometimes GIMP (so I guess I have a realist streak in me) but there is some done as I learn to achieve a balance between what is in front of me and what my concept or vision of the capture is. While I first started out shooting in jpeg format, everything now is done in RAW.
I’m relatively new to photography so welcome to my gallery and I hope what I’ve done gives some measure of pleasure and that you enjoy your visit. Being an amateur, constructive criticism is always appreciated so if you have a ‘oh, that would look nice if he did …’ moment please feel free to comment.
Oh, and the usual blah, blah, blah about proprietary rights, obtaining permission for use, etc, etc, etc.
I can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org
June 01, 2015 and I’m graduating to a Canon 6d
Keep your eye to the viewfinder, exercise your curiousity and have fun, Allan.
