I love Toronto At Night!

13 Jul

Last weekend, I took the opportunity to hit the streets of Toronto once again at night and take in a few shots.  I really love shooting Toronto at night, quite possibly just for the opportunities that it presents to leave the shutter open for extended periods of time, so once again, I took that opportunity.

Possibly my favourite part of the night was coming across the raccoon who was stuck in the lid of a dumpster, mr friend and I decided that we should help it get unstuck, but not before exploiting it’s struggles and capturing the images of pain and anguish. (what photojournalism).

Paul and I also took the opportunity to play with the flash and came out with a pretty cool one, not a bad profile pic.

Light Painting and Long Exposures

22 Nov

Light painting is quite possibly one of the coolest fun things to do as a photographer. Wikipedia defines light painting as:
“Light painting, also known as light drawing or light graffiti is a photographic technique in which exposures are made usually at night or in a darkened room by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera. In many cases the light source itself does not have to appear in the image. The term light painting also encompasses images lit from outside the frame with hand-held light sources.”

a great tutorial can be found here on diyphotography.net

This first image was my first attempt at light painting which may be used for a project at Spring Garden Church and the second image I took when I noticed this funny looking character jump into my car while trying to capture long exposure shots above the highway.

These are a few of the shots I got overlooking the highway.
