Learn to Fish Video Shoot

As an IM/IT guy at work, I rarely get the opportunity to leave the office. I was recently asked if I would help capture some video for marketing and promotional purposes. Spending a day on the water playing with cameras and getting paid? Yes please. It was a lot busier than I had expected with…

Ottawa 2019

Back in mid-August, my oldest son and I went on our annual trip to Ottawa. My brother is in a conference there, so we just crash in his room and spend the days exploring town. I had loaded up my Nikkormat FTn with an expired roll of Kodak Gold but on the second day (and…
