I’ve been trying to find some time to hang out with my friend Heather and take some photos. She was over, along with her husband Graeme and our mutual friend Vince. Here’s some shots of Heather and/or Vince.
Went to the Blue Fog Review at Lee’s Palace last night. It was my opportunity to road test my new 50mm 1.8 lens. I took over 600 photos. I’ve only had a chance to go through the pre-$100 photos. Until I get a chance to post the $100 photos, you can enjoy a recording, courtesy of Mechanical Forest Sound. Here’s $100 performing “Hell’s A Place,” a song about Lesbian love; and here’s Rick White with $100 performing “Sorry We Missed You.” Photos?
I’ve been playing with some self-portraits as of late, because I haven’t had any models around. Though I do have some photo sessions lined up with some friends. I decided to buy some new equipment I had been craving for some time. I started with a 50mm prime lens.

About a month ago, my sister Shira and I started taking a photography course at Humber. So far, we’ve kind of been wondering why we were taking it. It seemed in many ways well below us. It still does, but yesterday we finally learned something useful, something which alone is enough to cover the cost of the course. How to read a histogram. I’ve known for a while what a histogram is, but I’ve never understood how to read it, or how to use it to make my photography better. For those that don’t know, the right-hand side of the graph is white, left-hand side is black. If you want… Read More »Histogram
Ben Gunning has posted some of my photos on his website. If you already saw those on Flickr or Facebook, they’re the same, but if you haven’t check ’em out at bengunning.com. On that note, check out Ben Gunning’s new record Mal De Mer.
